So the subject says it all. What do you put in your every day on the grill burger? Just salt and pepper? Any other secrets?

I have plenty of different burgers I make:
Sometimes just salt & pepper
Lipton Onion soup burgers
Teriyake burgers
BBQ burgers
Shredded cheddar burgers (cheese inside)
etc etc

Just curious to hear what others make. Tonight trying a burger seasoning from Williams Sonoma.

Original Post
Several different combinations.

1. Just salt and pepper, melted cheddar cheese. Dressed with mayo, ketchup, good garden tomatoes.

2. Oregon Blue Burger

Oregon Rogue Blue Cheese melted over the meat while it is on the grill, salt and pepper
my favorite recipe

diced bacon, scallions, onion, ground (insert meat here). topped with a sharp cheddar or pepper jack lettuce and a red pepper aioli on an onion roll.
The meat mixture, fineley chopped flat leaf parsley, vidalia onion and celery, and creole seasoning. Then mold a pat of sage butter so it is enclosed in the meat patty, grilled then dressed with choice of fixings with a glass of syrah!
before i gave up red meat... Frown

take on the western bacon:
rare/med rare
haystack onion rings
2 slices of cheddar
homemade bbq sauce

gorg burger:
rare/med rare
slab of gorgonzola cheese
balsamic glazed onions

on the meat (angus), just salt $ pepper, maybe some garlic powder.
mustard and tomatoes and cheddar usually. sometimes bacon. sometimes avocado. every now and then i mess around with cheese(mozz or morbier when i'm feeling silly(er))...
I rarely eat hamburgers but when I do I like it to be pure meat, served medium rare. I want for no other topping but a perfectly ripe garden tomato and a little bit of sea salt. Few foods remind me more of summer.

Trim most of the fat from a strip or two of bacon; fry in a nonstick skillet. Let bacon dry on a paper towel. Leave the bacon fat in the skillet.

Mix ground beef (85% lean or higher) with sparing amount of Lawry's Seasoned Salt or similar, plus a little onion powder, garlic powder, black pepper, Worcestershire Sauce, and optionally a little chili powder. Form into patty and fry in hot bacon fat. After turning, top with blue cheese and allow to melt. Add cooked bacon and serve in a bun.

My other favorite burger is the same seasoning as above, topped with sauteed sliced mushroom and a slice of melted cheese -- swiss, jack, provolone, or cheddar.
I like lean ground beef mixed up with a little onion and liquid smoke and pepper jack cheese into a pattie with salt and pepper grilled medium. On a soft bun to soak up the juices.
My everyday burger gets:

worstchestire sauce
mustard powder
garlic powder

Generally served with red onion, deli mustard (Goulden's) and Heinz ketschup and/or a nice BBQ sauce on toasted bun. And beer.
1/2 ground chuck, 1/2 ground sirloin, one egg, salt, pepper, garlic, onion, spices to suit fancy, top with melted cheddar cheese and caramelized onions.
My burger mix is simple, ½ chuck, ½ sirloin, egg, salt, pepper, dash of Worcestershire. Favorite toppings are onions (quickly charred on the grill), crisp lettuce and thousand island. Close second is sautéed mushrooms and swiss. Close third is cheddar, bacon and avocado.

Wine and burgers make a good pairing, but nothing beats a cold beer. Cool
