This is delish! Best juiciest burgers I've made! Instead of adding the s+p right away, I wait until right before we put them on the grill -- it helps not to soak up all the seasoning and juices from the burgers a little bit. Just something I've always done. This is so easy and delish...even great reheated for leftovers!

Love love love these, best hamburger seasoning recipe I've tried &better than any of the ones I've had at home growing up (both of my parents were good cooks). In fact I love these more than the kind I can get at restaurants. I make mine with bison & omg everyone loves :)

Tried this and it works fine and tastes great, although I can personally do without the garlic. Very juicy. No hint of a meatloaf taste or texture, which is something I did worry about. Can't wait to try again with the suggestions I read here.

Looks delicious! I have never tried adding bread crumbs but I bet it will make the burger stay together on the grill better. You can always freeze the formed burgers for 15 minutes before you grill to make them keep their shape, too.

Actually it sounds like a glorified meatloaf...But has anybody tried it with ground turkey?

Egg and breadcrumbs in an all-American burger?!? This is more like a hamburger spiced meatball recipe. Where I'm from, burgers are 100% ground meat (some like to mix in some pork, but I prefer all beef) with spices. Very straightforward and tasty.

Add a dimple in the top to keep the burger from puffing up.
