Frequently Asked Questions about Best Seasoned Burgers

HOW LONG TO COOK THE BURGER FOR?

One of the keys to the perfect burger is knowing how long to cook burgers on the grill.  According to this article, you should cook your burger patty to 165 degrees F.  This means, you’ll want to pull it off the grill when the burger temperature is around 155 degrees F because the meat will continue to cook while resting.  The best way to know when you’re burger is at the perfect temperature is to use a meat thermometer.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO WAIT?

Let the burger rest for a few minutes before digging in.  You want all of the juices to redistribute throughout the burger.  If you cut or bite right into it, all of the delicious juice will come pouring out.

CAN THIS RECIPE BE DOUBLED OR HALVED?

Of course, it is really easy to adjust this recipe for the amount of people you need. Big batch or small.

NEVER PRESS DOWN ON THE BURGER!

You also want to make sure you don’t press down on the burger while it’s cooking.  This will cause all of the juices to drip out of the burger into your grill, losing all the flavors. Not only will your burger be dry, but it will also cause flare-ups on your grill.

BEST SAUCE FOR BURGER?

There are so many to choose from for example: Creamy Sriracha Sauce, Best Burger Sauce or Campfire Sauce.

Expert Tips for Making This Best Burger Seasoning Recipe

  • Season it well: Use my Burger Seasoning Blend which has just the right amount of seasoning, salt, and pepper.
  • Use the right burger meat: I prefer 80/20 ratio ground chuck for a perfectly juicy and tender burger. It is the .best beef for burgers.
  • Use a burger press: This is my favorite one.
  • Cook it to 165 degrees:  Use a meat thermometer to know when it’s done.
  • Top with your favorite fixings:  This Burger Sauce is one of the most popular recipes on It Is a Keeper. Try lettuce, tomatoes or any of your favorites.
  • Hamburger Seasoning: Black Pepper, cayenne pepper, paprika and more of your own spice mixes to taste.
  • Cheese: Top with any cheese that you like.
  • Protein: Try an alternate protein such as turkey or even veggie burgers,
  • Forming: Once your burger patty is formed, you want to press a little divot into the center with your thumb.  This will ensure that it doesn’t puff up in the center when cooking.
