Bring on the burgers! Grilling season means it’s time to invite some friends over, warm those coals, and flip these incredible burgers. Our go-to seasonings include Dijon mustard, salt, garlic powder, black pepper, and Worcestershire sauce for maximum flavor. We’re leaving the toppings to you, but have included some of our favorite condiments. Feel free to get creative! Ketchup leather, anyone?

Best Burger Recipe

Yield: 4 servings
Active Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes


For the patties:
1 small yellow onion, grated
1 pound ground beef (85/15)
1 egg
2 teaspoons Annie’s Organic Dijon Mustard
1 teaspoon Annie’s Organic Worcestershire Sauce
1 teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon ground black pepper

For the burgers:
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
4 slices sharp cheddar cheese
4 pretzel buns

For the condiments:
Tomato slices
Minced red onion
Annie’s Organic Ketchup


Make the patties:
Drain excess liquid from onion through a paper towel, then add all ingredients to a large bowl and gently fold together. Divide into four patties and shape into rounds about ¾-inch thick. Refrigerate, covered, for 30 minutes.

Cook the burgers:
On the stove: Add oil to a large skillet set over medium heat. Add patties and cook 3 to 5 minutes per side. Place one cheese slice on top of each patty; cover and cook for 1 to 2 minutes more, until melted. Serve with buns and your favorite toppings!

On the grill: Heat a gas grill to high and brush burgers with the oil. Grill until golden brown and slightly charred on the first side, 3 to 5 minutes. Flip burgers and cook an additional 3 to 5 minutes. Place cheese on top and close grill; cook 1 minute more, until cheese is melted. Serve with buns and your favorite toppings!
