You had high hopes your homemade burger would turn out just as delish as that double cheeseburger you had out last weekend. But somewhere between the frying pan and your plate, it’s morphed into a hard, flavorless hockey puck.
That’s because you forgot the special secret ingredient: French onion soup mix. Just add a packet of the instant stuff to 2 pounds of ground beef or turkey, then add ½ cup water and mix well. The consistency should be firm but still juicy. Shape the meat into about 16 burgers, then grill until they’re browned on both sides.
Cue your astonished friends asking for the recipe.
