Frequently Asked Questions about the Best Seasoning for a Burger

WHAT IS THE QUANTITY TO USE?

For a basic burger patty recipe, I add 1 tablespoon of this Burger Seasoning Blend to 1.5 pounds of ground beef.  I mix it in and form my patties. If you are concerned about your salt intake, you can cut back several teaspoons salt.

HOW DO I STORE THIS RECIPE?

Airtight is important to spices, if they lose their oils and dry out too much and get hard or lose flavor. Mason Jars are great.

CAN THIS RECIPE BE DOUBLED OR HALVED?

Absolutely, I love having this seasoning on hand, therefore I always make a big batch, especially in the summer when I am grilling a lot.

ARE ADJUSTMENTS ALLOWED?

If you are watching your sodium, or like it a little hotter, definitely, you can adjust the amounts. It is so much better than ordinary seasoning salt.

Expert Tips for Making This Burger Seasoning Recipe

  • Recipe Can be Doubled: Make more and have it on hand to season a hamburger anytime.
  • More Pepper Flake: Like it hot, use a little pepper flake.
  • Grind: Dry your own fresh herbs and grind your blend for an amazing flavor.
  • Sweet: Want a little sweet to counteract the dried herbs, try a pinch of brown sugar in the mix. Need a little more heat try cayenne pepper.
  • Uses: Try on steaks as a steak seasoning or sprinkle on turkey burgers or meatloaf.

    Made this today, smells wonderful! Question on the onion powder…is it 1 tbsp or should it be teaspoon. Only ask because the recipe starts with Tbsp, then to 1/2 tbsp, then to tsp… just curious. Thanks so much!

    • Seasoning is definitely to taste. You can adjust it however you like to meet your specifications. Try making it your way, that is why recipes are so nice, you have the control.

    I didn’t read any reviews but I cook a lot and I knew that was too much salt. I used only 2 tablespoons of pink Himalayan salt. I used smoked paprika and paprika. I added 1/2 of a tablespoon of Kinders Woodfire garlic as well and only 1 tsp of chili powder and I added 1 tsp of ground Chipotle pepper! My combination had so much flavor and it was super delicious.

  3. I haven’t tried it yet, but to answer the question… Paragraph 3 states 1 tablespoon per 1.5 lbs of beef. Might solve the salt concentration issue,
