Burger Seasoning Mix

We totally love the meat we've been ordering for the past year and find it very delicious, but somehow the burgers don't taste very good. It's probably because the meat is so lean and we're used to fatty burgers, but it really defeats the purpose of eating organic free range meat if every time we're craving a burger we run out for fast food instead. The whole point of ordering this food was to avoid factory farmed, chemical laden meats!

In this beautiful warm fall I took on the challenge of coming up with a burger mix that would make the ground beef we order taste like fast food... and here is the result:

Burger Seasoning Mix Single Use

1/4 cup corn starch
1/4 cup bread crumbs
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon nutritional yeast
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

What else you'll need

1 pound ground beef
4 hamburger buns or rolls
various toppings

Combine the mix with the ground beef and form into patties, then cook them on a grill pan or BBQ.

We served ours with salad and lots of yummy toppings!

I found the biggest challenge in making a burger mix was making burgers that didn't taste like meatloaf! But we didn't mind doing a few test runs until we got a fast food tasting burger that was still made at home with organic meat.
