This is my version of the Fuddruckers Hamburger Seasoning. I got the original list of ingredients from Todd Wilbur at Top Secret Recipes Todd has a bunch of great recipes I want to try.
The only change I made was to cut the salt to 1 teaspoon instead of the original 1 1/4 teaspoon (the original batch was too salty to me).
I rubbed in a generous portion on each side of 1/2 pound burgers. I let the burgers sit and the rub worked it’s magic.
Then I placed the burgers on my awesome T-fal Optigrill and cooked to medium.
I’m going to try this rub on chicken and pork to see how it pairs. I also might increase the brown sugar to get a bit more crust on the meat.
- 2 teaspoons paprika
- 1 1/2 teaspoons ground black pepper
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon dark brown sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
Rub into meat patties, cover and place in refrigerator for at least 1 hour prior to grilling. I also put some in a shaker and shake for even more spice goodness.
