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.

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

    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.

  2. 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,

  3. 1/4 cup of salt was A LOT of salt!! My family would not eat their burgers. So sad. I thought it had some really good taste too it but it was extremely salty. Has anyone had any luck cutting the salt back? I want to give this another go but unsure of how to balance it all? Just double everything else??

    • If you don’t like the amount of salt, you can always scale it back to suit your tastes. I only use 1 tablespoon of prepared seasoning per pound of ground beef.

      • Even a tablespoon is way too salty. Your nutritional info says that there is 28362mg of sodium per serving. This is what the FDA says about sodium intake per day.

        Americans eat on average about 3,400 mg of sodium per day. However, the Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends adults limit sodium intake to less than 2,300 mg per day—that’s equal to about 1 teaspoon of table salt! For children under age 14, recommended limits are even lower.Jun. 8, 2021

        Salt/Sodium-Free: Less than 5 mg of sodium per serving
        Very Low Sodium: 35 mg of sodium or less per serving
        Low Sodium: 140 mg of sodium or less per serving

        On a low sodium diet, I would only put a pinch of salt in the mix, max … 2 pinches. Your recipe is a heart attack or stroke waiting to happen!

    We really liked this seasoning on the burgers I made tonight. I did make one small change. We like smoked paprika so I used that for half of the paprika in the recipe. Thanks for sharing.

    I love this recipe and it takes the burger to another level. I had dried onion to the meat as well as the seasoning. Cooking on the BBQ gave them a juicy charred flavour, awesome.
