I've made burgers with onion soup mix added to the ground beef, but the use of ranch dressing mix is new to me. I like the idea mentioned below of adding both of them to the hamburger and I do want to give that a try. I almost always add bacon to my list of condiments, and I've used a variety of cheeses Sharp American, muenster, havarti, swiss, colby jack, and pepper jack. Not all at once, of course, but that's the usual selection of cheeses.

Cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, bacon, and onions

I'm afraid that I prefer my burgers with just cheese and Caramelized onions

I love the idea of adding ranch dressing to the burger. Another reviewer mentioned adding onion soup too. That sounds like a good idea to try next time. The sauce in this recipe is amazing! My favorite burger combo is mushroom and Swiss cheese, but I do like a hearty burger with lettuce and tomato. Hold the onion, please!

Since I have a love for Ranch dressing this one is great! When I make regular burgers, I like using pimento cheese, and in the summer, I pile on the fried green tomatoes.

My daughter made this but added a pack of onion soup mix to the meat along with the ranch. They were incredible!

I like to add cheeses and fried mushrooms to my burgers. I usually just use cheddar, but recently I have been using brie and Swiss cheeses. The brie melts very quickly and needs to be monitored, and it pairs very well with sliced ripe pears.I always add lettuce, and usually a bit of sweet onion.

If I eat a burger, I want it loaded with all the condiments, plus lots of onion.
