All You Need

  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) milk
  • 1 cube McCormick Gourmet Beef Bouillon
  • 8 soda crackers, crumbled
  • 1 egg
  • 2 lb (1 kg) lean ground beef
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) McCormick Gourmet Dehydrated Parsley Flakes
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) McCormick Gourmet Ground Thyme

  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) McCormick Gourmet Garlic Powder
  • 8 slices cheddar cheese
  • 8 hamburger buns
  • Assorted toppings: tomato, lettuce, bacon, pickles, condiments


  1. Combine the milk and bouillon cube in a small microwave safe bowl. Heat the milk for 20-25 seconds. Whisk to dissolve the bouillon cube.

  2. In a large bowl, combine crackers, milk mixture and egg. Let sit 5 minutes.

  3. Add beef, onion, herbs and spices to the cracker mixture in the bowl. Mix until uniform in appearance.

  4. Divide mixture evenly into 16 thin patties. Place a slice of cheese on top of a patty and top with another patty. Press edges together firmly to seal. Repeat with remaining patties.

  5. Grill over medium heat 6-7 minutes per side, or until internal temperature reaches 160°F (71°C).

  6. Serve on hamburger buns with desired toppings.
