Grilled Herb Burgers

These flavor filled burgers hit the spot and are not filled with a lot of extras like crackers or oatmeal, etc. They are more solid because these things are missing but they have so much flavor you will be glad to overlook the absence of the added carbs, and they beat the dry, bland, frozen ones from the grocery store by a mile! My husband once again worked his magic with the grill yesterday and we enjoyed these for supper. I was out of lettuce but I had spinach so I added that instead for a yummy treat along with red onions and tomatoes. They were delicious! The recipe makes about 26 - ¼ lb. hamburgers which is kind of a lot but I wanted to have them handy in the freezer for later use so I made the whole batch.

9 lbs. (90% lean) ground beef
3 large eggs
3 Tablespoons dried onion flakes
1½ Tablespoons Roasted Garlic and Herb Seasoning
2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes
2 teaspoons black pepper
2 teaspoons dried oregano
2 teaspoons dried rosemary
2 teaspoons dried basil
2 teaspoons dried parsley
3 teaspoons dried, minced garlic
1 teaspoon kosher salt

Mix well. Weigh (¼ lb.) and form into patties and place into refrigerator for several hours to allow flavors to meld. Grill and serve with your favorite fixings. Or freeze in an airtight container. These were grilled with a small amount of Sweet Baby Rays Original BBQ Sauce on each side.



  1. Although I'll have to re-size the recipe for two, it sounds like it will make wonderful burgers. Come to think of it, I can use the recipe next summer when the gang comes to visit. Have a great day. Blessings...Mary

    1. good idea Mary. you can make them ahead and have time to enjoy the gang :)

  2. Yum! Those sound very flavorful! I usually simply use ground beef (90% lean) and a little salt and pepper. These would be a fun change! Your photo is so beautiful!

    I picked up some ground turkey patties at the grocery from the clearance isle last week. (all fillers) They are ready to grill but I think they will need a little flavor...might use some of your herbs and spices here to help them along! :)

    1. sounds yummy, Betsy. we are having grilled sausages for sup. I eat them just for the saute'd peppers and onions :) yum!

  3. mmmmm deliciousness! I love homemade burgers! (although I'm too lazy to make them myself!)

  4. They look and sound so flavorful and delicious!
