This really is the best tasting hamburger ever! All the people here complaining that it tastes too much like meatloaf can just go back to eating their boring old meat burgers with salt and pepper, because this recipe if for folks who desire some real flavor in the meat. I made this recipe exactly as described, except I ommited the garlic clove, and used only a teaspoon of powdered garlic. For the onion I used a red onion. I mixed all of the other ingredients together before adding the meat, and I knew I was in for a treat when I saw how thick and rich all of the flavor ingredients were. I used a george foreman grill, and was very happy with the final results. My only mistake was my condiments. There is no need to add a slice of onion on the burger, because it will be too overpowering. Keep it down to a minimal with maybe just a slice of lettuce and a slice of tomatoe, and enjoy this hamburger for the flavor already in it. Looking forward to leftovers tonight!

Way toooooo SALTY!!! This recipe packs a lot of flavor but it's just NOT balanced. Too much salt and I didn't even use salt. Not one pinch! Cut down on the onion soup mix...maybe this will help cut the salty flavor.

I served this recipe a month ago, and it was very good. We're doing it again tonight. The only changes I made were to go light on the herbs & spices--about half the asked-for amounts. And no salt at all. The onion soup mix and soy sauce add all that's needed.

Made them for Mother's Day because my mom loves hamburgers and she took one bite and couldn't eat the rest. Way too many ingredients and the rosemary was dreadful in a hamburger.

This may be a good recipe if you want your burgers to taste like meatloaf. -plus, that was without the onion soup mix. With the soup mix would be far too much seasoning. Won't use this burger recipe again.
