Burger night has been taking place often around here. It’s an easy go-to meal for the summer, for sure! I like getting creative with toppings and different bun alternatives. Lettuce leaves as a bun, sweet potato buns, or grilled portobello mushroom caps (along with the obvious bacon, lettuce, tomato, onion, smashed avocado toppings). Deeee-lish.

I used to use a hamburger seasoning that I loved. When we finally moved and bought our grill, I checked out that old handy seasoning only to find the ingredients weren’t working for me anymore. Instead of listing ingredients, the end of the list said ‘and other natural flavor.’ I’d rather know exactly what’s in the spice mix I’m eating, personally.

Ingredients for Burger Seasoning

  • Garlic Powder
  • Paprika
  • Minced Dried Onion
  • Sea Salt
  • Black Pepper
  • Onion Powder
  • Mustard Powder
  • Oregano
  • Red pepper flakes
  • Cayenne pepper

How to Store Hamburger Seasoning

Store in a jar with a tight fitting lid. We often will reuse our empty store-bought spice jars for when we make our own blends.

How long will it keep? So it’s not that spices go bad, it’s that spices lose their potency. It’s generally accepted that spices should last about a year once opened, but that’s assuming the store you are purchasing it from has a quick turnover rate and isn’t letting spices sit on the shelves for a while. If you are making this spice blend with spices that have been sitting on yourshelf for a while your blend will lose its potency quicker. At the LCK test kitchen, if spices have been around for more than a year we toss and refresh with new ones.
