I love a good old hamburger. Nothing screams “America”, like a burger!  I find that simple is the way to go. Ground beef with a good seasoning.  I have been working on my seasoning for a couple of years.  I have finally come up with the perfect go to seasoning.  It is simple, but hits all of the right notes. This upcoming labor day, you have to try this seasoning on your burgers.

Hamburger Seasoning

I have tried a ton of different combinations but have found that this combination of simple ingredients enhances the flavor of the beef the best.

In a bowl combine the ingredients.  Stir or mix until well blended.

Burger Seasoning

To use, form your favorite ground beef into 1/4, 1/3 or 1/2 pound patties.  Sprinkle both sides of the patties liberally with the seasoning.


Grill over direct heat until you see the juices start to pool on the top side of the burger.  I used a set of grill grates to get a perfect sear.  I must say that I have never gotten such perfect grill lines so easily.  I will have a full review of the grill grates next week.

Place on the grill

Flip and continue to grill until your burger reaches your desired doneness.
