That’s where Lipton Onion Soup comes in.

With this nifty little packet, there’s no need to worry about under- or over-seasoning. You’ll get perfectly flavored burgers every time.

So what are you waiting for? Put on your apron and fire up the grill. It’s time to make burgers!

Lipton Onion Soup Burger Recipe

Want to impress your family and friends with your burger grilling prowess? This recipe for Lipton onion soup burgers is the key.

A single packet of Lipton onion soup mix is all you’ll need to season your burgers perfectly every time. Mixed with a little mayo, of course.

This combo is the best way to ensure your burgers have the perfect flavor, 100% of the time.

Your burgers will be juicy, flavorful, and ridiculously addictive. And that’s without all the extra condiments. The burgers themselves will taste unbelievably good.

Don’t take my word for it, though. Try this recipe and see for yourself how delicious they are.


You’ll love how simple these burgers are to make. You’ll need only four ingredients (plus buns):

  • Ground chuck. For juicy burgers, you’ll want the beef to be 80 to 85% lean. It’s a high-fat percentage, but stick to it! Otherwise, your burgers will be dry, no matter how perfectly you cook them.
  • Lipton Recipe Secrets Onion Soup Mix. It’s the secret ingredient that gives these burgers their distinct and unbeatable flavor.
  • Hellmann’s or Best Foods Real Mayonnaise. Along with the soup mix, mayo will take your burgers up a notch.
  • Breadcrumbs. They provide structure to the burgers, preventing them from breaking apart as they cook. Don’t use too much, though! Otherwise, the burgers will be too tough. Just 1/4 cup per pound of beef will do.

Tips for Making Burgers

I didn’t lie. This recipe is a simple one to follow. Still, that doesn’t mean I don’t have a few tips for you!

  • Pick the right meat. You can make your burgers with ground turkey or beef. However, beef — specifically, ground chuck steak — will give you the best, juiciest burgers. Look for a ratio of 80-85% lean to 15-20% fat.
  • Wet your hands. Additionally, the warmer your hands are, the faster the proteins will break down. (Again, leading to dry burgers.) Washing your hands in cold water beforehand will help prevent this problem.
  • Don’t overwork the patties. This is the most important thing to keep in mind when making burgers. Mixing breaks down the proteins in the beef, pushing the juices out of it. The more you handle it, the drier it gets!
  • Indent the patties. Form an indent at the center of the patty using your thumb. This will prevent the burgers from puffing up.
  • Chill the patties. Pop them in the fridge for about 10 minutes before cooking them to seal in the juices.
  • Grill on high heat. Doing so will give the patties a nice, crusty, seared surface.
  • Disturb the patties as little as possible. In other words, slap them on the grill and leave them alone until it’s time to flip them! Don’t press them with a spatula or flip them over and over again multiple times. That’s what dries them out.
  • Let the burgers rest for 5 minutes. Don’t serve them right away. Letting them rest will allow the juices to settle. If you serve them too soon, the juices will just ooze out.
  • Remember the toppings. These patties have enough natural flavor to taste great by themselves. Still, who doesn’t love melted cheese, juicy tomatoes, and crispy lettuce on their burgers?
  • To check for doneness. Gently press the surface. A medium-rare burger will be slightly springy. For more accuracy, you can use a meat thermometer to test. Here’s a simple guide:
DonenessTemperature (Fahrenheit)
Rare120 to 125 degrees
Medium Rare130 to 135 degrees
Medium140 to 145 degrees
Medium Well150 to 155 degrees
Well Done160 to 165 degrees

Looking for ideas? Here are some dishes that complement burgers wonderfully.

  • French Fries. Ah. The classic! Crisp on the outside, fluffy on the inside, and deliciously salty all over. Take it up another notch by drizzling truffle oil over them. Sweet potato fries are also an excellent choice.
  • Onion Rings. The subtle sweetness of onions gives your savory burgers a nice flavor contrast. Plus, who can resist that crunch?
  • Coleslaw. Crisp cabbage and carrots are coated in a creamy, tangy dressing. It’s a light, cold, and refreshing treat that tastes amazing with burgers!
  • Kale chips. They’re crunchy, healthy, and easy to make. What’s not to love?

  1. Can I make some burgers and freeze them? If I can, do I freeze before I cook them or after and do I thaw them before I cook them once they’re frozen?

    • Hi Millie. Yes, you can make extra and freeze them for later.

      Here's how:
      1. Mix the ingredients in a bowl until well combined, then set it aside to rest for 5 minutes.
      2. Portion the burgers and flatten them into patties.
      3. Wrap each burger (raw) in a strip of parchment paper, then freeze flat on a baking sheet until solid.
      4. Transfer the frozen burgers to a freezer bag for up to three months.
      5. Thaw the burgers in the fridge overnight, then let them come to room temperature for 5-10 minutes before cooking as instructed.

      I suggest freezing them raw so you don't overcook them the second time.

      But if you have leftovers, you can freeze those too! Let them thaw, then cook on the stove over low-medium heat, with a lid to keep the moisture in.
