Secret Homemade Hamburger Recipes Easy To Make

Nothing smells more like summer than when the barbecue is going. The smell just screams sun, fun, friends and family and maybe even a summer drink or two! ;)

But how much better does it get than making your own homemade hamburgers from scratch to cook on the barbecue rather than buying pre-packaged hamburgers from the store?

Homemade hamburgers are an American staple and are King of the grill. And we know the most mouth-watering, easy homemade hamburger recipe for making the absolute best homemade hamburger patties.

Why have flavorless burgers from the store when you can have savory, juicy burgers that completely melt in your mouth with every flavorful bite, made from scratch?

These homemade hamburgers are ready to bring your barbecue game to top-notch and will impress all of your summer guests.


  • 1/2 lb of pork (this makes the homemade hamburgers juicy)
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1/4 cup of sweet onion (yellow or purple will do)
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • Half of a package of dry onion soup mix
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup — 1 cup of breadcrumbs
  • salt and pepper

How To Make:

2. Finely mince garlic, put both into a bowl.

3. Mix together by hand with the pork and beef until homemade hamburger meat is well-blended.

4. Add homemade hamburger spices: garlic powder, onion powder, onion soup mix, and salt and pepper (Just add by feel, maybe 1/4 tsp each if you are looking for a measurement) and ketchup.

5. Mix homemade hamburger meat mixture by hand until blended.

6. This step is optional: To infuse the flavors of your homemade hamburger meat, put some saran wrap or tinfoil over the bowl and put into the fridge for anywhere between 3–6 hours.

You could additionally add some extra hamburger spices, and a super popular one is Emeril’s BAM Burger spice, which you can find on Amazon right here for a super great price. It’s awesome to have on hand.

7. Take homemade hamburger meat out of the fridge and mix in the egg with the meat using your hands and blend thoroughly. It should be quite a wet mixture by now.

8. Add breadcrumbs to homemade hamburger mixture, about 3 tbsp. at a time and blend each time by hand until hamburger meat no longer feels wet.

You want to feel confident that the homemade hamburger meat will hold the shape of a homemade hamburger patty at this point.

TIP: If you don’t have breadcrumbs on hand, you can use crackers in your hamburger patties, just take about 10–20 crackers (soda crackers are great for doing this), place them in a ziplock bag and roll them with a rolling pin to crush and add to hamburger mixture.
