Big Ol’ Burgers

Do you ever get a craving for a huge hamburger?!

I had some ground beef that needed to be cooked and I was thinking hamburgers.

Typically, I just spice and season the patties up really well on the outside.

Tonight, I strayed away from the Grill Mates and seasoned salt shakers.

Tonight, I prepared some really large burgers using Lipton’s Onion Recipe Soup and Dip Mix.

Why, you ask?

Well, why not?!

The box wasn’t becoming Onion soup or dip.

It was just staring at me endlessly each time I opened the cupboard.

If you are not familiar with the box, here it is… 

I mixed the Onion Recipe Soup and Dip Mix with the ground beef and cooked the patties on a preheated George Foreman Grill.

The whole process was so quick, it’s not even funny. The tater tots which accompanied the burgers this evening surpassed the burger prep time.

Using jumbo hamburger buns, this is what came of it…

Oh, it doesn’t look that big?! Trust me. This was a massive burger.

There’s even a pretty big tomato slice underneath that meat mass.

Lipton’s Onion Recipe Soup and Dip Mix would be awesome for a meatloaf, but I wasn’t digging it on this Big Ol’ Burger. I thought it took away from the beefy flavor that I’m used to tasting in a hamburger patty. I really wanted to yank it off the bun and add a pile of mashed potatoes.

Regardless, there are several other things I’d like to try out with Lipton’s Onion Recipe Soup and Dip Mix. One is making those yummy looking potatoes pictured on the box.

Woo hoo for packages of two!

  1. Looks delicious! I’m going to do this tonight. My only nitpick would be to put that lettuce on TOP of the burger where it belongs! They call them TOPPINGS (and not “bottomings”) for a reason! ;-D

  3. Thanks, and for anyone that is having difficulty chopping onions without the crying, here’s an incredibly simple tip – put them in the fridge first, then chop them straight away after taking them out! No more tears! I found some more onion soup recipes here if anyone wants to try some more variations.

  4. I just visited your site, and I love it. Did you go to college to learn to write?
