  • I don't put anything IN my burgers... everyone in the house has such different tastes. I do like cheese, onion and spicy A1 on my burgers though ;o)

  • Now that I found those new Ball Park hamburger patties I don't bother with anything else. They have plain, with onions and something else but I didn't care about anything else. I grabbed the ones with onions.

  • I put minced onion, A1 sauce, garlic, salt and pepper, sometimes I might put a bit of bread crumbs in them and add an egg, if I am cooking them on the grill, keeps them moist.

  • Minced onion, garlic, Tony Chaceries creole seasoning, worcheshire, jalapenos, egg, whole wheat bread crumbs, sriracha (only in the adults), and kosher salt and pepper on the outside.

  • DH puts garlic powder, minced onions, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, and whatever spices sound good to him at the moment.

  • I do pretty much what okmanders DH does. I use seasoning salt, garlic powder, Worcestershire sauce and mix it up really good with the burger before forming the patties. Then I freeze them for about an hour before grilling them so they stay together better. Oh, and sometimes I put some Italian bread crumbs in with it.

  • My absolute fave is to add worchestershire, salt, pepper, an egg and french friend onions into the beef and mix. Cook medium. Then as A topper I add a splash of worchestershire and diced mushrooms to cream cheese. Put the cheese mix on top of your hot burgers then top with more french fried onions. It is the absolute best!

    My mom adds lipton onion soup to her beef (I swear she uses that stuff in everything)
