Hamburger seasoning is the perfect addition to any homemade burger recipe!

No need to buy a store bought mixture, it’s easy to make your own to sprinkle into everything from ground taco meat, a burger patty, or even to season a steak with.

A Flavorful All-Purpose Seasoning

    • One bowl, one whisk and it’s ready to use!
    • Adjust the levels of salt and seasonings to create a signature blend.
    • Can replace store-bought seasoned salt.
    • Sprinkle over chicken, pork, and even salmon!
    • Add extra flavor to roasted potatoes, tater tots, or grilled veggies.

Ingredients and Variations

SALT: Kosher salt has larger grains and is great in this recipe. If you have table you can use that but will need to reduce the quantity slightly. Flavored or smoked salts can also be used.

SEASONINGS: Paprika, onion powder, black pepper, garlic powder, mustard powder, and smoked paprika will add flavor to any recipe.

But spice it up with cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes, or add a little dried oregano, parsley, even some dried lemon peel.

  • 1 ½ teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon mustard powder

Add additional spices and herbs to your liking. Try cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes, or add a little dried oregano or parsley.
Kosher salt has larger grains and is great in this recipe although it has larger grains. We find that table salt blends a bit better with the other seasonings. Flavored or smoked salts can also be used.
This makes approximately 3 tablespoons. Store up to 6 months in a dry cool place.

All your extra info is above & beyond . 1question, I was curious how your Homemade Hamburger Seasoning says servings: 16, step 2 in recipe it says to use 2tsp per pound of beef, but at end of recipe it says makes approx 3Tbsp of seasoning? How are the servings calculated?5 stars

    1. You’re so very welcome Gina! Each serving is approximately 1/2 teaspoon (2 teaspoons would make 4 burgers). Hope that helps. Enjoy the seasoning!
