  • In a large bowl, mix together the ground beef, sour cream, onion soup mix, bread crumbs and pepper using your hands. Refrigerate while you heat up the grill so the flavors have a chance to blend.

  • Preheat a grill for medium heat. Form the ground beef into 8 balls, and flatten into patties.

  • Grill the patties for 6 to 8 minutes per side, or until well done.

This is THE only way I will make burgers. They are juicy flavorfull and even have a sort of creamy texture. They fall apart on the grill so be carful. I make the mixture the night before so the flavors have time to meld. The first time I made these my friend after devouring it in no time at all told me to tell his wife the recipe. I like to melt swiss cheese on top. This is always a hit with my guests when I make them. Read More

Not too shabby. I mixed the ingredients the night before left out the breadcrumbs and cooked them on a gas grill. We lost one through the grate but the rest were pretty good. I used ground turkey and low fat sour cream and it seemed to work with the recipe. It just isn't as good as our usual burger mix. Not bad to switch things up though. Read More

These are FANTASTIC! Yummmmm I did keep them in a ball overnight so the flavors would savor. My family & friends couldn't get enough of them & devoured every one. Thanks this is a super duper recipe. I didn't have any problem with mine falling thru the grate maybe because I left them in a big ball after mixing & let set overnite Read More

What a yummy burger!! I was looking for something different but still simple to do to hamburgers for camping and this is the new favorite!! Simple ingredients and a moist and flavorful burger!! No sauces needed! They freeze well but don't cook up quite as moist. I add a little extra sour cream if I am gonna freeze them. Read More

I am not the best griller so I was a little hesitant to try something like this but now I'm so glad I did. I cooked the patties on my little charcoal grill and these burgers didn't dry out at all. They had the great flavor from the grill and the tasty kick of the onion mix. Plus they didn't dry out at all. Definitely will be making these again! Read More
