Who doesn't love hamburgers? Hamburgers are undoubtedly a universal favorite and have been rightly dubbed as "food for the soul".

The following is a collection of hamburger recipes that go well with onion soup mix. These are sure to excite and revitalize your taste buds and satiate your hunger pangs instantly. The best part is they are supremely easy to cook! Pair them with crispy, salted fries or refreshing cool drinks, or just crunchy salad dressings and you have a filling yet delicious meal on your hand. Cook these for your loved one and kids or serve the burgers at a social gathering; they are sure to be a great hit.

Fair warning: Be ready, and not surprised, when your guests come asking for more!
Before you start cooking, keep in mind:
  • 1 tablespoon is approximately equal to 3 teaspoons.
  •  For better results and taste, mince meat yourself at home.
  • An average-sized (1 inch thick) patty can be made out of 5-6 ounces of the meat mixture.
  • Chill/refrigerate the patties for at least 30 minutes, so that they hold during cooking.
  • Basting patties with olive oil just before grilling them will make them meatier, juicier and yummier.
  • Flip the patty only after you realize that the patty isn't sticking to the grill.
  • Before taking the patty off the grill, cover it for a few minutes for a distinct smoky flavor.
  • If you don't have a grill, you can either pan-fry, deep-fry or broil the burger patties.
  • Substitute beef with other options like chicken, turkey, salmon, crab, pork, lamb, and tuna.
Onion Soup Mix
Onion Soup Mix
Say bye-bye to enveloped/packed/boxed readymade soup mixes and say hello to a yummy, homemade onion soup mix. Minus the artificial preservatives, this homemade recipe tastes great and is easy to make. The recipe works well for vegetarians too, if you decide not to add the beef granules to it.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 2 minutes
Total Time: 7 minutes

You will need:
♦ Dried minced onion, 2½ tablespoons
♦ Onion powder, ¼ teaspoon
♦ Beef bouillon granules (low sodium), 2 tablespoons
♦ Seasoned ground black pepper, ⅛ teaspoon
♦ Paprika, ⅛ teaspoon
♦ Parsley flakes, ¼ teaspoon
♦ Salt, ¼ teaspoon

Method:
➾ Add all the ingredients to a large bowl. Stir the mixture thoroughly.
➾ Place the stirred mixture in an airtight jar/container and give it a good shake.
➾ This onion soup mix can be stored and used within a period of 6 months.
➾ Store in a cool and dry place.

Chef's Tip: Omit the salt in the mix; beef bouillon is already rich in sodium. If someone needs salt in their share, they can add it at the table. Add a pinch of sugar for that hint of sweetness.

Method:
➾ Coat the grill with nonstick cooking spray or vegetable oil to avoid sticking of the patties to the grill.

Chef's Tip: Fry the bacon bits slightly in vegetable oil to add that extra bit of grease, crunch and taste to your burger. If looking for an all-out amazing flavor-packed hamburger, deep-fry the burger patties as well in vegetable oil.

➾ Cover the bowl with a sheet of cling film and refrigerate for 1-2 hours.

For the Bacon:

➾ Prepare 6 fist-sized balls and press gently to form flattened, round beef disks (about 1 inch thick). Your burger patties are ready.
➾ Place the patties in chilled water for 30 seconds at least. Once you take them out, place them over the preheated grill and apply melted butter over them with an oil-brush. Butter and grill each side of the patty for about 5-6 minutes or until done to your liking.
➾ Top the burgers with generous helpings of Cheddar cheese and allow it to melt.
➾ Spread the refrigerated Tarragon Russian dressing on the split hamburger buns. Place red onion and tomato slices, lettuce leaves, and bacon strips between the buns.
➾ Toast the hamburger slightly over the grill and serve hot.

Chef's Tip: When making the patty disks, gently dimple its center by creating a cavity/pit with your knuckles. This will prevent the patty from shrinking and pulling in at the center. The result will be an evenly-cooked, round, well-shaped, not-broken burger patty.
