I follow the recipe on the box, which calls for a 1/2 cup of plain bread crumbs and 1/2 cup of mayo added to the 2lbs of hamburger and the onion mix. The mayo keeps the burger melt-in-your-mouth moist. Adding worcestershire (for "authority" as I call it) and/or a dash of hot sauce (for variety) during or after grilling further distinguishes Lipton onion burgers from the usual bland, over-priced homestyle thick burgers you get at fast food places, steak houses, and bars.
I actually made the liptons recipe on the box with some personal touches. My burgers didn't hold together very good so next time I will try adding an egg to help with the binding. I added crushed garlic, paprika, pepper,Worcestershire sauce, and a pinch of cayenne pepper to give a little zing. After the burgers are grilled I topped them with cream cheese, and sauteed mushrooms & onions. I do not put it on a bun. I have dubbed them the strogenoff burger
Very tasty and not at all good for my waistline, but what good burger ever is?! Used about 1.5lbs ground beef and a touch less water since I was going to make them into patties and freeze them in foil for dinner in the future. Thawed them overnight, tossed them on the grill and they are perfect- not overly salty, extremely juicy and just enough flavor so they're not boring, but they don't overshadow your condiments either. What a simple, easy way to make a great tasting dinner- thanks!
