Hamburger Seasoning Recipe

My family enjoys grilling season, and I always make it a habit to serve delicious grilled homemade hamburgers, sausages, and roasted vegetables. As the one in charge of gathering and preparing the ingredients, this time around I wanted to upgrade the flavor of my burgers. It had to be the best burger for grilling season. I wanted to know how to season burgers properly to whip up something even more appetizing. Turns out, there are a lot of so-called best seasoning for burgers out there. I tried some of them, but there’s just something missing in terms of flavor.

I wanted something a bit smoky and spicy. Before, I would usually just use salt and pepper to season my homemade burger patty. It tasted great, but I knew I could do better than that! That’s why I did some experimenting and made the best hamburger seasoning for burger patties. It’s a super simple burger seasoning recipe that anyone can do at home.

I used simple, kitchen-friendly ingredients for this hamburger seasoning. The powders and spices I used are inexpensive so you can always make this any time. All you need to do is mix all of the ingredients in a large bowl, and you’re done! What’s great about this recipe is that you can store it, and use it all-year round. When you’re seasoning hamburger patties, you’ll only need about 2 to 3 teaspoons of the burger seasoning mix for every pound of hamburger patties. That’s why I recommend that you store them in an airtight container where they can last longer.

I’ve been making this hamburger seasoning since then, and it really adds a lot of depth and flavor to my patties. The blend of the paprika and black pepper adds a subtle smokey, spicy, and earthy flavor while the dark brown sugar and the kosher salt give a perfect salty and sweet balance. Lastly, the garlic powder and onion powder add aroma and a fresh onion and garlic taste to the patties.

This combination of flavors definitely makes it the best burger seasoning since it blends the taste of smoky and savory. I made some double-stack cheeseburgers using this burger seasoning recipe with a side of arugula salad for a complete meal. And my family really enjoyed munching on their burgers!
