This is a simple, basic burger seasoning made with optional minced dried onion and a variety of seasonings. I use a small amount of cayenne pepper in the seasoning but feel free to leave it out if you prefer a milder burger.

Mix the seasoning into the ground beef or sprinkle over the burgers as you cook. It's great for grilled, broiled, or pan-fried burgers, or on these ​Juicy Baked Burgers. You could also use the seasoning in your favorite meatloaf or meatball mixture.

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
