I love hamburgers. I’m starting to be a hamburger connoisseur.

Not on purpose! I’m not trying to be a snob, I just love hamburgers. I’m sure you can relate.

And anytime I have a better burger, I wonder how I can get to the next level of burger-making.

An easy way for most of us to become better burger chefs is to season your meat with more than the default salt and pepper combo. This is the recipe I came up with and the one I use when making burgers for myself and my family.


This fully seasons 1 pound of ground beef when mixed into the meat.




  • 1 ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon chili powder
  • ¾ teaspoon brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • ¾ teaspoon onion powder




  • Mix well.
  • Serve finished burgers with ketchup and mustard!


You can save an old spice bottle and store your hamburger seasoning in there to sprinkle on your burgers one by one, or make the mix and fold it into your burgers by hand before you cook them. I prefer this option when cooking for a group.

If I’m cooking for guests, they won’t know how much to put on their burger, and might be reluctant to try my unknown concoction stored in an old spice bottle. Searing the spices inside the juicy burger means they can just eat it and be happy, without having to think about anything!


Enjoy! Let us know what you think in the comments!
