My mom always made hamburgers with onion soup. Hers were more like meatloaf burgers, but I keep mine simple. You only need 3 ingredients for Mom's onion soup mix burgers, and it really doesn't get much easier than this:
- Ground beef -- we use 80/20 mix
- Lipton Onion Soup Mix
How to Make Lipton Onion Soup Burgers
First, add the packet of onion soup mix to the ground beef. We usually use around 2 pounds of ground beef, but you can easily adjust the recipe as needed.
Then, add ¼ cup of water. Gently mix the ingredients by hand until the meat is firm enough to handle.
Form the meat into hamburger patties. You should be able to get 6 or 7 patties -- around ½ inch thick each.
Then, gently press the middle of each patty with your thumb to make an indentation. This helps prevent the hamburgers from shrinking too much while they cook.
Cook on the Grill
Once you've made the burgers, you can use your favorite cooking method to cook them. Cook the burgers on a gas grill over medium high heat for 5 to 7 minutes per side or until the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees, according to a meat thermometer.
You can add your favorite cheese during the last minute or so. We like American cheese on these burgers, but cheddar or Colby Jack is also good.
Cook in Air Fryer
To cook onion soup burgers in an air fryer oven, preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place on the tray, and cook for 15 minutes, turning about halfway through. Use a meat thermometer to make sure the internal temperature is 160 degrees. Add your favorite cheese right before the burgers are done cooking.
Made too many burgers? You can store leftover burgers in a covered container for up to 4 days in the refrigerator. For longer storage, wrap cooked hamburgers in wax paper or plastic wrap, place in ziptop freezer storage bag, and keep frozen for up to 4 months for best quality, according to the USDA.
