This is something I started making when my children were little. I have made mini burgers with the same ingredients, but scrambled are just easier and faster.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12 lbs ground beef (I use lean or chuck)
  • 1 tablespoon oil or 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 packet Lipton Onion Soup Mix
  • 2 cups water (more or less as needed)
  • 1 tablespoon instant minced onion
  • 12 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 12 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce (optional)
  • 14 teaspoon black pepper (or to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch (mix with 1 tsp. water if needed)
  • salt
  • 3 (30 count) cans refrigerated buttermilk biscuits

Directions

  1. Mix ground beef with 1/4 cup water (this makes the meat break up easier and cook more evenly).
  2. Place onion soup mix and minced onion in 1 cup of WARM water to rehydrate and cook biscuits according to package directions, while you brown the meat.
  3. In a skillet (I use cast iron) melt butter and brown meat until it begins to stick and brown on the bottom of the skillet.
  4. Add a little water to deglaze the bits that are sticking.
  5. Do this 3 or 4 times.
  6. (Deglazing adds a LOT of flavor but can be skipped, but it really effects the out come.) After deglazing add the soup, onion and water mixture with remaining seasonings.
  7. If you prefer a little more gravy texture thicken with the cornstarch and water (slurry), or you can cook the liquid out.
  8. (I like the gravy.) Divide biscuits and top with the meat, pickles, and mustard or any other hamburger toping you prefer.
  9. You can serve this on regular hamburger buns or even hotdog buns if desired.
  10. Served on hamburger buns, it tastes similar to a Krystal burger.
