Ranch beef burgers may become your new favorite burger! Perfectly seasoned beef, crispy bacon and cheese, piled onto whole grain buns with your favorite burger fixins!
The weather seems to have finally broken from unforgiving levels of humidity and turned cool to match my over excited Fall mood. This weekend happened to be one of the best we have had in a long time and we wanted to make the most of it. I’ve got some wicked new mountain biking bruises to prove it. 😉 With the turn towards hoodies and boots, this may be the last burger I post for the season – and that’s OK, because it’s going to be hard to top perfection.
What makes a Ranch Burger?
Don’t be worried about having to slather your burger in ranch dressing. The secret to the flavor of the Ranch burger is actually a dry ranch seasoning, somewhat like what Doritos Cool Ranch tries to convey. It is what gives the dressing it’s distinctive spice and, mixed in with your beef, gives it just the right amount of body to let you know that it’s there. It makes for a darn good burger. How good is this burger? It might be my favorite burger of the night 😉
Ha! OK, it’s good – but there are far too many awesome burgers in the world for this one to prance around with a crown on calling itself the best. Buuut.
As far as simple, classic burgers go, Ranch beef burgers won’t leave you disappointed.
Now, before the weather turns terribly cold and nasty – fire up those coals one more time and enjoy a bite of this with me. Oh… don’t forget the fries!
