Sour Cream Burgers
Lots of flavor, and a nice change from just a regular burger. You can make these ahead of time and freeze them also. Serve on buns with all of your favorite toppings.

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 even better yet if you mix ingredients, cover and refrigerate for a day.Barbeque next day.Flavor enhances
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
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.
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!
when i make burgers i usually use ground sirloin - but decided to go with ground round with this recipe. made these for memorial day bbq and everone loved them. my husband wanted to know what i did different and when i told him about the sour cream he was pleasantly surprised. this is my new burger recipe!
Very easy and I used my George Foreman Grill!
WOW, great recipe! Juice tasty burgers every time! Make sure not to forget the breadcrumbs (as I did the second time I made this recipe) or they will fall through the grill grates. Well done!

These were very juicy. Tasted really good, we enjoyed them.
This is our favorite burger recipe. I mix the onion soup mix with the sour cream before adding it to the meat. I also make the burgers the night before to allow the flavors to meld. Incredibly juicy even if you use lower fat beef.
Very tender and moist. I do recommend letting it sit in the fridge for longer then recipe instructs. I added sauteed mushrooms with swiss cheese. One of the best burgers I'd had in a long time. Will definitely make again.
These turned out excellent! Super moist and tender. I will experiment with other spices and flavors along with the sour cream next time.
I followed the ingredients as is and it was perfect. Just make sure you refrigerate for a least an hour so they meat firms up. I'm always bored of burgers when I have to make them for the hubby but I really enjoyed this recipe..
I made these for a tailgate and a barbecue - and they were a hit each time. I followed the recipe exactly and had no texture problems. One time I pressed the patties are refrigerated overnight, and the other time I pressed them and grilled them immediately - they stayed together and came out wonderful either way. These will definitely be a summer staple at our house.
First of all, these were very tasty, but very wet. I could see that the mixture was wet, so I decided to make this as meatballs instead of patties, hoping they would have a better chance of staying together. Even as meatballs, they completely fell apart. So I added them into a marinara sauce, and they completely enhanced the flavor of the sauce, so it was still quite good. Finally, I will admit that I added in a packet of ranch dressing (something I had seen in a previous recipe), and I think that really made this recipe. If I make this again, I think I will use oatmeal instead of bread crumbs (may help to keep their shape), or more meat, or both.
These are very good. I think there is something wrong with my grill, bc it took forever for them to cook. I also halved the recipe but failed to halve the onion soup mix. My fault. Bf commented it was a bit overpowering, but otherwise liked them. Made my own soup mix from a recipe on recipezaar. Thanks!
One of the juiciest burgers I've eaten (given that I don't usually eat beef)! The right amount of spices and super tender! I scaled down recipe for my 1.3 lb package of ground beef. Used one whole package of dry onion soup mix (for ease), 1/2 cup of Italian style bread crumbs, and low fat sour cream. Made five patties. Highly recommend!
It was allright, made more than enough. It was oniony, just like I expected but next time I will use ranch mix instead of the onion soup mix for an extra zip of flavor. Topped it with slightly melted swiss cheese and raw yellow onion.
Need more bread crumbs to hold it together or an egg. I'd leave out the sour cream and throw in seasoning salt and worcertershire sauce or montrel seasoning steak sauce
I was disappointed. Very moist but mushy texture. I like my burgers meatier.
Awesome. I double recipe for large gathering and got rav reviews. Another time I made them I used ranch dip pack instead of onion soup mix and used the excess that I didn't use for burgers and made a meatloaf. Best ever meatloaf! As others did I added more sour cream when freezing.
I scaled back the french onion mix by half, and I added a small boiler onion, finely chopped, it turned out great! Also add some worcestershire if you have it on hand, it really makes it yummy! Great recipe, never would have thought to add sour cream on my own, but it's perfect!
This is meatloaf on a bun. I added some parm. cheese and catsup to the mixure as one here suggested. Still, meatloaf on a bun. It did not fall apart when cooking, but still, meatloaf on a bun. We probably won't make this again. Not really like a hamburger.
This was the most bland recipe for a burger that I have ever tasted. I was looking so foward to it by the reviews and was so disappointed, along with my 7 guests. I followed the recipe to the "T" and it just didn't measure up. Maybe with some Sauted onions or somethig but this recipe is not what it is cracked up to be.
SO juicy! These turned out so good and so flavorful. I even made these with ground turkey since I can't have beef and they were just delicious. Can't wait to make these again. **EDIT: Even though I cut this recipe in half because there is only two of us, I still use the whole envelope of dry soup mix and if I don't have soup mix, I use onion dip mix.
my hubby really like these burgers. will make again.
SO GOOOOOOOOOOD! Made them at a BBQ and everyone was impressed. They are delicious and now this is the ONLY way I make my burgers. Make sure not to put to much onion soup mix or they get a weird flavor.
I didn't change a thing and the burgers were delicious. I only left it in the fridge for 30-45 minutes because I was starving. Next time I will plan ahead and leave it in there longer.
Try the Burger Pocket Press to make your next stuffed burger. It was recommended to me now I am recommened it to you.
"Very distinct burger" my husand says! :o) Awesome recipe...used ground sirloin...tender & not dry at all. This one is a keeper. Thanks for sharing.
Didn't change a thing. Nice and moist.
very good! i subsitued onion soup with dried ranch. will absolutly add to my favs.
This was very good, just not excellent. The texture is more like meatloaf, but that is what I needed because my 19 year old had just had his wisdom teeth out a week before. The taste was very good also.
It is so funny when you see a recipe in Allrecipes that you have been making for years but got from somewhere else. I have been making my hamburgers almost exactly like this - - the exception is I add a little ketchup and parmesan cheese in with the other ingredients. The sour cream and onion soup mix gives the taste of "Onion Dip" to the burgers. So moist, so yummy!
These burgers were ok. You must be a meatloaf fan to really like them. They can fall all apart if you are not carfull. My husband ate 2 he thought they were good.
Great recipie, i love sour cream and onion dip and this burger hits the spot.
Oh YUM! I made them with a combination of lean ground turkey & ground sirloin. I made the patties and let them chill out in the fridge for a few hours. Be sure the grill is lightly oiled and hot, because of their tender consistency they may crumble. I will make this often.
These were really good. My fiancee doesnt like reheated burgers (for work) but he said these tasted fresh still since they were so moist! The only downfall that I had was that they were almost TOO moist. As I tried to shape the patties and fry them, they were falling apart. I think that I will just use a little less sour cream next time. But they do taste even better after the mix has sat in the fridge for a couple hours!!! Great recipe!!
I paired this recipe with the Honey Wheat Sandwich Rolls recipe and the combination was f-a-n-t-a-s-t-i-c! Very flavorful hamburgers. Will try the suggestion of mixing this up a day ahead to let the flavors mesh next time.
I made this for dinner tonight and like suggested, I made it in the morning so the flavors would blend. while it was a very moist burger I thought the onion soup was to overpowering. My hubby who eats anything didn't care for it.
I didn't try these, but my daughter loves them. (Super picky eater who doesn't even like hamburgers) Go figure! My son also now adds sour cream to his regular burger. LOL!
These make great burgers. I also made a meat loaf using this recipe and it was good too
Hi guys! Found this and just had to let you know, this is my meatloaf recipe! With a little tweaking, ie: add some milk, more/less bread crumbs/meat. It's great. Use fattier meat and stir the dripings into some brown gravy (I use the McCormick packets), serve w/ home fries or mashed potatoes. YUM!
These are awesome! Highly recommend them!
I really enjoyed this. Great because I always have these items on hand so I can easily make this when I don't know what to do for dinner. Great alternative to a plain burger with lots of flavor. Not a huge fan of beef burgers but this was great. I used extra lean ground beef and light sour cream with whole wheat buns to making it a little healthier. Usually the extra lean meat isn't as good for burger making but the ingredients added to it make it more tender and juicy.
I changed this recipe a bit since my family doesn't like burgers that taste like meatloaf. I eliminated the bread crumbs, and only used 1/2 of the onion soup mix. I only used 1 pound of hamburger (turkey & chicken burger works great too!) instead of 3 pounds. Once I made these adjustments, I couldn't believe how good the results were! Now, these are the only burgers I will make! Thanks for the awesome recipe!
It was just okay. It left me wanting more, and that's not in a good way. Was a little too salty even with only using half a package of the soup mix - don't even want to go there with a full package! Wouldn't make again - better off with just plain burgers and it's not worth the effort.
from all the reviews i thought our family would be over the moon for these burgers. they were good but just not what we expected. They were falling apart by the time they were done, and the flavor was just alright. Definatly need more breadcrumbs or maybe and egg to try and keep these burgers together. Also i suggest if you do make these to mix the soup mix with the sourcream to sofen the onion soup mix a bit. I think I will stick to my usual burger recipe without dumping sour cream in them. I give this 4 stars for the flavor. If the burgers would have stayed together then it would have been a 5 star.
WOW! This was totally awesome! I can't believe how delicious these were, prepared exactly as called for in the recipe, and used potato roll buns. We used a Foreman Grill too, and these come out PERFECT when you evenly divide the meat out to make 8 patties and cook for 5 minutes. We will definitely make these often in the future!
This was just ok for me. I don't regret trying the recipe, I just probably won't make it again, at least not without adding more spices. The sour cream taste was very mild. It did put a different spin on the traditional burger, and it was fun trying!
These were fantastic!! I don't eat homemade burgers but I LOVE these!! My whole family thought they were great. I left out the soup mix & just seasoned them because my kids are really picky about "crunchy stuff" in their food & as recommended by another reviewer, I made them the day before so the flavors could blend. I have told everyone I know how good these were. I've made them twice in 2 weeks!!
Very Good! Moist burgers, lots of flavor!
These are awesome!!! Juicy and full of flavor a keeper for sure.
These were tasty and very moist. Yum!
Excellent burgers!! I cooked them in my george foreman and some crumbled. Next time I might add an egg to try and keep them together. Overall they taste was really good!!
Won over the taste buds of people who like most of their foods "plain." I'm new in the family and they were being polite allowing me to cook burgers that night, and eat them. Raised eyebrows and sincere "ymmm" all around! Thanks for sharing.
My goodness, I did NOT like this. It tasted like meatloaf, ew.
The possibilities are endless with these delicious burgers - from bbq sauce and cheddar cheese on a bun to patty melts with mushrooms and swiss on rye.
These were good. i think next time I will not add as much Lipton Soup Mix.
I liked it it was tasty and easy to make, you should keep it in you recipe box, for a day when you don't know what to do.
These were a hit with our family!
I was amazed at the flavor. After they were cooked I added some butter, then minced garlic and sliced mushrooms..
AWESOME. The best ever. i will never make burgers another way.
These burgers were moist, flavorful, and absolutely wonderful! They have become a new favorite in our home.
TOO MUCH ONION
I found the burgers to be very flavorful, however I did not like the consistency of the burger was too mushy. I think it may have been due to too many bread crumbs.
I made this for Father's Day and it was a huge hit, everyone loved them. They were so moist and juicy, great with sauted onions. The only thing is I don't think they were better fresh, then if you froze them.
I cut this recipe in half because only my husband and I were eating. Normally we don't like "stuff" added to our burger - but we thought we'd give this a shot. In the end, I couldn't taste the sour cream, really the only flavour was the onion soup mix. The burgers were difficult to work with because they were so moist and one of them fell apart on the BBQ. We thought these were ok....but probably won't make them again.
These burgers were moist, flavorful and easy to prepare; however, they were SO moist they fell apart. Next time I make this recipe (yes, it's saved to my faovrites), I'll cut the sour cream to 1/2 cup and prepare them ahead of time. All-in-all, the kids enjoyed them so it's all good to me.
I did not care for this recipe. I will never make these bland burgers again.
These were yummy!!! Just three days after grilling these burgers, my husband has informed me that he bought some more ground beef and would very much like me to make some more patties. Thanks for a great recipe.
Best Burger I've ever made- I don't think I can go back to a regular burger. It helps them from falling apart on the grill if they're really cold when you start grilling them and have a large spatula to turn them.
I made this recipe for a BBQ to try something different than the average burger. Those of us that had a burger agreed that while the flavor was okay, the texture was just wrong. I would not describe this as juicy. I would describe it as soft and mushy. If I hadn't made them myself, I would have thought they weren't even beef. If you are thinking about trying this recipe, I would start with a family meal before trying for a group BBQ. I will not be making this recipe again.
I was looking for a change in my burgers and I had all the ingredients. I added a tsp of liquid smoke and that made it taste all the better. I will be making these again.
This burger were very good and moist. I did make a couple of changes. After reading the reviews I cut the sour cream in half. Glad I did because you could taste the sour cream with it being to over powerful. Also I used the Copy Cat Lipton Onion Soup because it was all I had. This one is a keeper.
I make this last night. I chopped up some mushrooms and added to the mixture. it was delicious, boyfriend said it was the best hamburger he'd ever eaten.
After reading some problems that others had with this recipe I did a little prempt tweaking and the burgers turned out amazing. Major props to the original author because I would have never thought to put sour cream in my burger mix and now I will never make them without. So what I changed ... the comments about the onion soup mix being too salty, I used a sieve and separated the packet and only used about 1/4 of the powder/seasoning. comments about too moist and falling apart - I busted up a sleeve of Ritz bacon crackers and added those. (my husbands first comment was "wow did you put bacon in these?!") I also added about a Tbs of soy sauce. I didn't have overnight to refrigerate the mix, only about 3 hours. One thing I did disagree with is taking the meat straight from the frig to the heat. I always return any protein to room temp (about 20 mins) before cooking so that it cooks evenly and doesn't dry out, although I know not everyone believes in doing that. btw I forgot to take a pic of them hot, so my picture is of the lone left over that I quickly wrapped and hid in the fridge so the hubs couldn't eat it as a midnight snack.
After seeing all the reviews that said this was "meatloafy"--I was a bit hesitant to make. I finally gave in and thought we'd try them. One word...FAB-U-LOUS!!!! This had to be the most juicy, moist burger I've ever had. The texture was wonderful and they tasted fantastic. I used onion/mushroom dry soup mix b/c that's all I had. I didn't think it had a meatloaf taste AT ALL and they stayed together just fine. Thanks for sharing!
I followed the directions exactly and we fell in love with these fabulous moist burgers. This is now my new recipe for hamburgers!!!
These were excellent, way better then a regular burger, i grilled them o nmy george forman, they were yummy!!
We loved these burgers. They will be my "go to" burgers from now on. They are easy and flavorful. I followed the recipe but I added 2 tablespoons of Worcestershire and my husband brushed them with same when he put them on the grill.
these burgers melt in your mouth! so tender and juicy. we had ours on sliced and broiled olive bread with just a touch of dijon mustard. simple and fabulous. i can imagine adding some bright flavor like diced green chiles. really whatever you like. however, this will be my base recipe from now on for sure.
Loved these burgers. Altered recipe to make two servings and they turned out fantastic. Moist, flavourful and very easy to prepare. Grilled them on convection in my toaster oven for 6 mins. each side and they were perfect. Husband thanked me three times for the great lunch! A definate keeper.
I lost half the meat on the grill when it oozed through the grates. The remaining meat I cooked in a pan. The flavor was onion-y but the texture was mushy and very off-putting.
Overall, I liked these. They were very moist, so the patties tended to fall apart. My husband said the onion flavor was too overpowering, but he is the type that likes just beef burgers with salt and pepper; anything else and he says it starts to taste like meatloaf. Thanks for the recipe.
This has become our new cookout favorite! My burgers always wanted to fall apart, but these are just great every time, and even my picky son thinks they're the best!
Moist tasty burger. I was surprised how good these were and I had expected less just from the ingredients. I cooked these stovetop, but I'm sure they would have been a lot tastier on the charcoal grill. I'll make this again. Thanks!
Flavor was just o'k. All the sour cream did was give the burgers a tendency to fall apart towards the end of cooking.
Made these for my son's third birthday. They were a hit. I made one burger added some cheese in the middle than made another burger a mushed them together. They where a fair size burger. Would double the recipe to get more burgers next time.
A very good and tender burger, I will definetly be making these again.
These were just ok. My husband and I weren't particularly fond of them. Prefer regular old-fashioned burgers.
I read the reviews and mixed it this morning and cooked it for dinner. It's rainy so I cooked them in the electric skillet and they turned out great but I thought the dry mix made them a little too salty. I might try 1/2 the powder next time, or come up with my own spices. So far, the family's favorite burger is the BBQ Feta and Hot Banana Pepper Turkey Burgers and that's what they ask for.
These were so good! Will definitely make again
My family loves these burgers. They will be our go to burger recipe for sure, from here on out. They are moist and flavorful and don't fall apart. They also freeze wonderfully. So happy I tried this recipe. The sour cream seemed a little strange but they are soooo good!
Didn't really add much in flavor and definitely didn't grill well. Won't make again.
This recipe is a keeper. I used ground angus beef. Instead of crumbs I put approx 5 oz of club crackers into a freezer bag and crushed them with a small rolling pin. The burgers were very goooooood. The next time I have my kids and grandkids out for hambergers this is what I am going to serve. Enjoy
I love the idea of sour cream in the burger. I never would have thought of that on my own. I didn't have soup mix, but I had a .07 ounce package of garlic onion spice dip mix that I used. (I made a burger once with soup mix and did not care for it anyway). Delicious! But, 4 stars because it is a little mushy. Maybe more bread crumbs next time, as other reviewer have suggested. I used Muenster cheese and topped it with a generous slice of avocado. Yumm yumm!
