Delicious Hamburger and Meatloaf Seasoning

The Best Hamburger & Meatloaf Seasoning

I’m not sure how many different ways I’ve tried to season our meat for grilled hamburgers or the deliciously classic meatloaf ~ at least 3 or 4 a year for lots and lots of years now.   Some have been pretty good.  Some not so good at all. Recently when I was searching again for a way to season some burgers we were planning to grill up for a family birthday party I came across this recipe from  I think it’s my all-time favorite. I really like that it doesn’t have bread crumbs or crackers and it’s moist and makes a really good yet subtlety flavored meat that works well for dressed up burgers or a glazed meatloaf.
