  • In a large bowl, mix together the ground beef, onion soup mix, water, garlic, hot pepper sauce, chili powder, ketchup, mustard and pepper using your hands. Pat into 4 large thick patties. Place them on a broiler pan.

  • Broil the burgers for about 15 minutes per side, or until well done. Place buns on the broiler pan and toast briefly. Place whole green onions on the broiler pan at the same time, and just toast until limp.

  • Place burger patties onto the bottom halves of the buns and top each one with a slice of cheese and some avocado slices. Top with the top buns. Serve with green onions.

I thought the measurements on this were a little off. I don't think a pinch of chili powder and 1/4 tsp. of ketchup and mustard do much to 2 lbs. of ground beef. I liked the combination of ingredients so I increased the chili powder to 1/2 tsp. the ketchup and mustard to 1 tsp. each and the pepper to 1/4 tsp. I omitted the hot pepper sauce. Instead of broiling I cooked the burgers in my electric fry pan and didn't bother with the green onions. Instead I just served these with the usual toppings sliced onion lettuce tomato sliced avocado etc. They were good. Read More

Too bad about using Onion soup mix. Too much sodium and artificial taste. We prefer something a little more homemade not using artificial ingredients with colours and preservatives added. This is too 1970s when we didn't know better. Sorry. We didn't like this. Read More

I cut the recipe in half for 1 pound of lean ground beef (90/10). I didn't bother with the water I just didn't see the point. I added a little extra dijon mustard ketchup and Frank's red hot. These came out very moist and delicious. I served these on toasted rolls with thin sliced red onion and melted american cheese. Read More

This recipe is delish as is. They are the best homemade burgers. My kids had friends over the night we made them and they said they tasted like a burger from a restaurant. When youre making the patties big after you formed them make a indentation in the center of the burger with all your fingers (kind of like a birds nest) this way when you cook them on the grill they wont shrink. They will stay the same size and they wont dry out. You wont be disappointed. Read More

Very delicious. I halved the recipe (so I guess that means I have to make it again now that I have half a pkg. of onion soup hanging around). Instead of water I used lactose-free skim milk. I don't know what difference it made but I thought I'd try it. Did a bit extra ketchup and mustard using the spicy brown variety. I mixed the green onions (sliced) right into the burgers. I didn't have pepperjack cheese so I used mozzarella. I'm sure pepperjack would have been better and unfortunately I had no avocado! I love avocados on my burgers so that's what drew me to the recipe. This is really easy and great with macaroni or potato salad. Read More

Everything is great except for the "well-done" advice. I will not eat a burger that is overcooked i.e. well-done...... anyone?? Read More

This was very tasty and moist. However I agree with other reviewers that many miniscule quantities added nothing and they were cooked too long. I tasted mostly garlic and some spice and the liquid made them light. As I had mashed avocado on hand I spread that on the top role and it was fine. Instead of scallions I sliced a red onion and broiled it a few minutes and I didn't think the cheese added much. Too many other flavors going on. Read More

Talk about yum!! First time making these and I also made homemade hamburger buns for the first time from this site as well. My family LOVED them! It's a must try!! I loved the full flavor of the burgers don't skimp unless you are picky. My daughter is picky and I didn't tell her what I put in them. She told me to make these for now on! Thanks! Read More
