Took it to a friends house to grill and had to give her the recipe, now it's her go to burger recipe too! I made them once as the recipe stated and they were very good. For Even better tasting tasting burgers, I used onion mushroom soup mix and a packet of ranch, along with a couple dashes of Worcestershire sauce and a couple dashes of franks red hot. The flavor was intensified without any added heat. Got compliments from even my mother in law, who pretty much hates all my food, so that's saying something! I dont ever add the water it calls for.

Delicious! These were soft when I first formed them but I did that earlier in the day and put them into the fridge until I was ready to cook them which allowed them to firm up a bit and allowed the flavors to blend. These came out very moist and juicy with great flavor. I will def be making these again YUM! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

This is awesome. Best burgers I've tasted. I only had 1 lb. beef so I just cut recipe in half. That worked well. This is quick and simple. No modification needed. Read More

Easy peasy and my guests LOVED this! Normally I'm not a big fan of shortcutting recipes by using powder mixes and such but I happily make an exception for this one because the flavor is so amazing. You can't even tell that mixes were involved! I've served this at 3 barbecue dinner gatherings and people always ask "What's in this burger? The flavor is so good." When I tell them it's just water soup mix and dressing mix they are shocked. It's moist flavorful and when you add a slice of cheese and some crisp bacon on top it's absolutely decadent. Follow the recipe exactly for best results! Read More

We've been grilling burgers forever but I'm always looking for something different. This is now my go to recipe! As recommended by others I added Worcestershire and a touch of hot sauce and reduced water to 1/4cup. I've made them three times this way and have received rave reviews each time! Read More

I liked these, but felt that the water gave the burgers a slightly weird texture. Next time I think I would either reduce or eliminate the water altogether. Thanks for sharing the recipe, tjrker07! Read More

Followed the recipe and these were delicious. I was in a rush so the burgers had almost no time to let the flavors blend but they were still amazing. This is now my go to burger recipe thank you for sharing it! Read More
