Ranch Burgers

I found this recipe on All Recipesย and it was such a hit I have made it several times this summer. For just me and my husband, I usually do just one pound of beef/half the recipe, and make 4 burgers. Last week, with family and friends also here, I used 3 pounds and upped the other ingredients a little. It’s a pretty flexible recipe, but downright delicious and super easy!

Ingredients:

– 2 lbs. ground beef
– 1 1-oz pkg. (3 T) ranch dressing mix/powder (I buy mine in a jar from Sam’s Club)
– 1 egg, slightly beaten
– 3/4 c finely crushed saltine crackers
– 1 onion, chopped very small (depending on how much onion you like, you might not want a whole one. And be sure to chop the pieces as small as possible. If they are too chunky, the burgers will not hold together as well)

Directions:

Mix all the ingredients together and form into patties of whatever size you like. Cook to taste–we like them grilled and pretty well done. I usually add a couple slices of sharp cheddar at the end, and we like to toast the buns on the grill right at the end too.

Serve with homemade rolls, mayo, lettuce, tomato, bacon, mustard, relish, ketchup,ย pickles, or whatever else you like with your burgers. Enjoy!
