NO NEED FOR KETCHUP OR MUSTARD HERE! BURGERS POP WITH FLAVOR! DON'T TRY IT WITHOUT REAL CHOPPED ONION BITS, BECAUSE YOU'RE MISSING OUT! This recipe tastes absolutely amazing and juicy even with extra lean ground beef, but I suggest some minor modifications. 1) I recommend using double the amount of ranch suggested in this recipe. Others have noted and I have found as well that it is difficult to taste without adding alot more. 2) Don't use as much crackers, just buy leaner beef. The crackers are just filler and detract from the recipe and tend to dry out the meat. I suggest using about 1/2 to 3/4 of the suggested amount of saltines.
I LOVE good burgers!!!I made these a few weeks ago and we love them! I did change a few things. Just two of us so I used 1 pound of burger and made two BIG burgers! I used a whole pack of Ranch dressing mix and instead of raw onion I used 1/2 pack of onion soup mix. I used Italian bread crumbs in place of cracker crumbs. Very much full of flavor and moist. I made it in the morning and grilled for dinner. The flavor really goes thru. I made a batch this morning and cant wait for dinner tonight! This is a keeper for us!
I did not like this recipe at all. I think one of the previous reviews was correct. It tasted like meatloaf. With all of those crackers I did not taste the ranch at all. Next time I will make them with just the meat and the ranch seasoning. I am sure that this would be a better combination.
Leave out the crackers and egg and just add onion soup mix with the ranch package. To die for hamburgers...Used my mother-in-laws homemade barbeque sauce. Smells wonderful while cooking. Hubby took to work and everyone wanted to sample.
Original review--April 24 2009: Pretty good. I used the Dry Ranch Dressing mix from this site (minus the salt and adding dill) and crushed Ritz crackers instead of saltines. I served them up with a nice sharp cheddar and slices of tomato. EDITED: These are NOT gross. I make these at least once every couple months in a variety of ways. One of my favorite ways to make it is serve it with a doctored up cream-of-mushroom soup gravy and fluffy mashed potatoes. My family LOVES it. This also works with ground turkey or ground chicken. I highly suggest making your own homemade ranch dressing mix if you can. It makes it SO much better.
I made these for dinner tonight and my family ended up eating cereal. These burgers were not good at all and we threw them away. They tasted liked mushy meatloaf on a bun. My husband couldn't even finish his which never happens. Sorry but I don't understand the high scores this recipe got.
Great burgers! After going through the reviews - use 1 oz. dry ranch mix for every pound of ground beef. I used 1 lb. of 85/15 ground beef and added 1 tsp. of dried minced onion and 1/2 tsp. of onion powder. There really was no need for the egg or cracker/bread crumbs. These came out very moist. Next time I will reserve a little of the dry ranch mix and add it to some mayo for a topping.
One of the best burger recipes I have found to date. I used seasoned bread crumbs instead of saltines...all I had on hand. The burgers came out moist and had tons of flavor...you don't even need condiments for this...leave the meat alone. We added some bacon and the cheese of our choice....and wow. Will definately make this one again. Thanks for the post.
