 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.

What You'll Need

  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • Optional: 2 teaspoons dried minced onion
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper (freshly ground)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

How to Make It

  1. Combine all ingredients; blend well.
  2. Mix 2 teaspoons into each pound of ground beef or sprinkle over burgers as you cook them.
