Original Hidden Valley Ranch Cheddar-burgers

Best Burger!


 
If you've never tried a ranch cheeseburger, you're in for a real treat.  They are juicier and tastier than plain ol' burgers, and so easy to prepare!  I made these for a cook out with friends and they loved them.  The aroma from the grill sent everyone running to it, curious to find out what smelled so amazing.  In fact, they all went home with this simple recipe. 

You can top it with onions, tomatoes, lettuce...all the fixings.  But, I love mine plain because the flavor is all in the burger.  So delicious!   Don't add any salt, the ranch dressing has enough to flavor and then some.  If you're a little salt sensitive, you can use 1 1/2 lb. of ground beef, or don't use the whole packet of ranch, and that will cut down on the intensity.  I've done this many times for those who are watching their salt intake, and the flavor was still great.


Ingredients:

1 (1 oz. packet Hidden Valley Original Ranch Dressing dry mix
1 lb. lean ground beef
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (We like the sharp.)
4 hamburger buns, lightly toasted
 
Break up the ground beef in a bowl.    (Breaking up the meat first will save it from being overworked and getting tough.)
 
Add grated cheese and sprinkle with the dry ranch dressing.  Mix together.  (I wear food prep gloves; clean up is so much easier that way.)
 
Shape into 4 one quarter pound patties, about 1 inch thick; cook thoroughly about 5 minutes on each side or until meat is no longer pink in the center.  (You can grill them outdoors or cook on the stove top.)
 
Toast buns before serving, if desired.
 
That's it...so quick and easy and the best burger I ever had!
