Brandi's Best Burgers

Recipe by  

"These burgers are definitely crowd pleasers! Perfect for family get-togethers and summer cookouts. They are complimented nicely by baked beans and potato salad. Serve between sesame seed or whole wheat buns and, if desired, plenty of lettuce, tomato, onion and pickles. I also like to use Hickory flavored wood chips when I BBQ to add additional flavor to the meat. If you use wood chips, soak them in water for about an hour, then spread them over the hot coals just before grilling."

This is a great recipe for making tasty burgers in a hurry. I used 'seasoned' bread crumbs which I would not recommend since it made the burgers a bit too salty.

The onion soup mix adds a nice kick. However, I think that I will go back to using eggs rather than water. I found they fell apart much easier without.

These were ok. I didn't like the texture I am not a big fan of breadcrumbs in a hamburger. My husband liked them but he is a hamburger fanatic. Personally I would not add the breadcrumbs.

I made these in the oven (450 for 20-25 minutes, turning halfway through). Turned out great! Served on onion rolls. Mmmm. Thanks for the recipe!

These are great hamburgers. I get nothing but excellent reviews when I make them. Instead of hickory chips I just add a teaspoon hickory sauce and it gives the burgers that little extra flavor. Easy to make also

Used half package of soup mix. Less salty!
