"We all have our different tastes for burgers I like mine flavorful and juicy this recipe will give you the best of both! see the bottom of the recipe for tips on even more extra juicy burgers! --- making a indentation in the middle of the uncooked burger will prevent the burgers from puffing up into meatballs shapes while cooking and keeps them flat --- do not add any salt into the burger mixture as the dry onion soup already has a lot of salt content, you can sprinkle some on towards the end of cooking if needed, if desired you may add in 3-4 tablespoons of your favorite barbecue sauce to the ground beef mixture"

"I used to despise homemade hamburgers. Not anymore. I knew I could count on this recipe to change my mind. My husband said they were of restaurant quality. Topped them with pepperjack cheese and the usual toppings. Soooo good! I will always come back to this recipe when looking to make perfect burgers. Thanks again for another wonderful recipe!"
"I was skeptical that it wold turn out more like meatloaf but not so! Don't overadd breadcrumbs and you'll be fine. II only used 1 lb of meat, gernerous with the Worchester, and added breadcrumbs until texture was a little thicker but still loose. I left out the onion mix since didn't have. My 3 doesn't like burgers at all and my 8 yr old only likes Mickey D's...the 8 yr old ate it completely and said it was "good". The 3 yr old ate at least 1/2! Hubby ate 3 burgers. This makes it a winner in my house. Once again Kit to the rescue!"
"This is indeed a burger that goes into my burger book with the best of them - Moist tasty with just enough zip -The potatoe adds to the texture and, I think, keeps them moisst. I used Panko crumbs.The BBQ sauce was Diana's The condiments I used were Mama Africa's Zulu Pickles "HOT", tomato. Vidalia Onions and of course cheese. Mushrooms on the side along with oven fries - Thanks Kittencal for a great Saturday Night Burger"
"approximated beef out of a nearly 6lb pkg, heaping scoop of jarred minced onion, no hot sauce; otherwise followed ingredients. hate touching ground beef so combined in ziploc bag (mixed all other ingredients in a bowl first) and tossed in fridge. made patties in 1/2c measures, squashing into bun-friendly sizes. cooked in Nu-Wave, 6min per side. dressed in potato sandwich rolls with american cheese, ketchup, and mustard. *VERY TASTY!*
Next time I'd like to try with a smidge of cayenne and have DH cook on the grill. :D"
"Absolutely amazing burgers. I love onions so it was not to overpowering. I added cooked chopped bacon & small chunks of cheddar cheese to the ground beef mix before putting in fridge to set :) They were even better the next day for lunch!"
"I've never been a big fan of hamburgers - I will eat them, but I never actually WANT one. My husband tried this recipe about 2 weeks ago......I am astonished - I love hamburgers using this recipe. We've had them 2 more times since! Thank you so much for sharing!"
"We used this recipe for a Memorial Day gathering and it turned out great! I did not have time to marinade the burgers, but they were still juicy and delicious. I did add a little more Worcestershire sauce than the recipe called for. Thanks for sharing!"
"We enjoyed these burgers very much. We made them as directed in the recipe and everyone liked them. Thanks for sharing your recipe."
"MMM, I thought these were great! Nice additions to a hamburger where I still felt like I was eating an old-fashioned hamburger rather than a mini meatloaf. I made 4lbs worth for a July 4th party and they went in a jiffy. Guests kept on coming back to the grill in search of burgers long after we ran out but still had a bunch of other meats from the grill available to eat! Thanks for another winner! Will definitely be using this recipe again."
"Once again, Kitten, BRAVO! I have been complaining that I can never seem to make a burger at home that tastes as good as the ones I get in a restaurant.... well not anymore! My hubby is going to think I'm the best cook ever because of you :) Thanks for the awesome burgers! (p.s. I used very lean meat and they were STILL juicy!)"
"We LOVED these burgers!!! I have never been able to say that about any burger I have made before. Thanks for this great recipe!"
"OMG, my taste buds are still dancing! This is better than any steak house burger I've ever had. My daughter agrees with a 10 star rating!!!! Next time, carmelized onions and sauteed mushrooms. Kitten, you are making me look like quite the chef, THANK YOU!!!!"
"YUM! Made as is and loved it. I decided to make this last minute today for lunch so I didn't allow it to sit and "marry" but still we loved it."
"Great recipe, only change I made was to substitute crushed chili paste for the Franks red hot. I like my burgers extra spicy. But after finding Franks red hot BBQ sauce, im now in heaven. Thanks K....another great Recipe for sure."
"Our family loves going out for burgers. Budget-wise it's costly. One night we decided to make them at home. Of course, I have to use Kittencal's - hands down the BEST burger! Won't be going out again to a restaurant, they are sooo yummy. I didn't have chill flakes, so I used a 1/4 tsp of cayenne. Maybe next time I'll reduce it, even though my 5 year old daughter helped make them and declared "these are soo good mum, I want them for my lunch (school lunch)!<br/>I made a chipotle honey mayo....<br/>I can't wait for summer! YUMMMY!"
"This was delicious! I realized after I mixed my ingredients that my package of ground beef was closer to 1lb than 2lbs...so mine DID turn out a bit like meatloaf, but it was still really, really good. I used lean ground beef, cooked well done in a skillet, and they were INCREDIBLY juicy. I was really surprised. Next time I'll make sure to use the right amount of beef for this recipe so that the texture turns out more like burgers than meatloaf. Try this. You wont be disappointed."
"I absolutely LOVE these burgers! I made them exactly like the recipe says, put them on the GF grill and they turned out just right! They were so moist and delicious my super picky 10 year old ate 2 burgers! This recipe is a must try!"
"I had between 2 and 2.5 lbs of ground beef. So, I used the whole pack of onion soup mix, a little more minced garlic than called for, italian breadcrumbs with a couple of crumbled saltines added and homemade hot (and I mean hot) hot sauce. They were very wet, so I was a little concerned, but I guess it was unfounded. DH loved them! We grilled them and served them with fresh corn on the cob and baby red potatoes with rosemary, garlic butter. This recipe is a keeper!!"
"Although I'm already a big fan of just about everything Kittencal posts, I must say that this was over the top. It was, without doubt, the best burger I've ever eaten. I used red pepper flakes and it was perfect. Grilled it on low/medium heat and was amazed. Keep them coming kittencal!"
