    Just bought a grill off of Craigslist and made burgers.
    Used Dad and Mom's method of mixing onion soup mix into the patties and basting them liberally with cheap BBQ sauce. They were delicious.

    That is the way I make the also. Every once in awhile I will add shredded cheese inside the meat as well.

    I usually do not do anything special to the meat other than basic seasoning (on top) and patty construction. I use salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and minced onion on the tops of burgers before cooking.

    It's too much work IMO to break down the ground beef and add a bunch of filler like egg, mixes etc.

    Old Bay is also great in burgers.

    I use Old Bay also, most of the time. Sometimes I will use the Montreal Steak seasoning (low sodium) too. I like making two thinner patties and laying one out and covering it with bacon and cheese, then I take the second and lay over the first and mash the sides together and making a stuffed burger that way. I try to change it up for the family so they never get tired of the same thing over and over. You can't for get to toast the buns too.

    Put the cheese( crumbled feta, shredded cheddar, etc) and bacon bits in with it as well. I will substitute ranch dressing mix for soup mix.

    I have a rancher I know that kills a cow now and then; 100% Texas grass fed, so I throw that ground beef on the grill, season it with a sprinkling of Lawry's then top it with a slice of smoked Gouda.
    I'll just say they don't stay on the plate long.
