**Full Disclosure: I received a gift card to purchase Hellmann’s and additional ingredients for the recipe. No additional compensation was exchanged. All opinions are my own.
When my husband and I were first married (okay, until just last year) he was not a fan of grilling. He has been taking lessons from my dad and has gotten SO much better! These days I
ask have my husband grill at least three times a month because I think burgers are that good! Burgers are one thing I don’t have to fight my kids to eat so that’s a bonus, too!
We have a very simple recipe for our burgers, and to be honest, I’ve never used mayonnaise in the mix. When I was asked to try Hellmann’s Best Ever Juicy Burger Recipe and then add my own twist to it, I thought, why not?! Plus, with the 4th of July just a few weeks away, it was a great time to test a new recipe!
The hubs says I should always make a recipe the way it is before I change it to fit my liking. I didn’t have time to do that with the Best Ever Juicy Burger recipe, so I was afraid of ‘the twist’. What would taste good and would I make it the ‘worst ever’ burger?
James helped me pick out the ‘twist’ ingredients – cheddar crackers, Italian dip mix and a roasted pepper & onion marinade – which we added to the Hellmann’s recipe. Then he chopped the cheddar crackers and measuring out the mayo and marinade.
The Hellmann’s recipe was beyond easy – mix hamburger meat with the other ingredients, press into patties, grill and enjoy. The mayonnaise helps to lock in moisture as the burger cooks. These burgers were incredibly juicy and delicious on their own but we topped ’em with extra cheese, tomato, lettuce and an onion bun! It was perfection! The cheddar crackers were a great addition because they give the cheddar flavor without the cheese melting out.
