These ranch burgers are bursting with flavor! Adding dry Ranch seasonings to the burger patties is a life hack you wish you would have learned sooner. These juicy burgers are perfect for your summer. 

These mouth-watering homemade Ranch Burgers are an ideal treat on a hot summer day, and nothing beats them when it comes to a juicy, loaded burger for your BBQ. My husband recently came up with this recipe using the Hidden Valley dry dips packet, and they have quickly become a family favorite. To prepare for our recent family gathering, we picked up our go-to Hidden Valley ranch products from Walmart.

In addition to using the dry dips packet for the burgers, I also like to use a variety of Hidden Valley salad dressings as toppings. Our family loves the classic Hidden Valley Original Ranch dressing, which pairs perfectly with summer side dishes like fresh veggie salads, pasta salad, and, of course, burgers. When we’re in a rush to make a quick dip for a vegetable platter, I also like to use Hidden Valley Dry Dips Packets. They are so convenient to bring to impromptu picnics that we get invited to in the summer. 

These Ranch Burgers are sure to become a new summertime favorite. Whether you’re grilling up a storm at your next backyard BBQ or just craving a hearty and flavorful burger, this recipe is perfect for any occasion. So fire up the grill and get ready to sink your teeth into the ultimate summer burger.

How to Make Ranch Burgers

For the Ranch Burgers: 

Season your ground beef with the Hidden Valley dry dips packet. Mix well until the seasoning is evenly distributed.

Divide the seasoned beef into 4 equal portions. Form each portion loosely into a ¾” thick burger patty. Make sure not to overwork the meat, as this can make the burgers tough.

Once your grill or saucepan is heated, add the burger patties. Cook the burgers until they are no longer pink in the middle, about 6-8 minutes on each side. For best results, use a meat thermometer to ensure that the internal temperature reaches 160°F.

Top each burger patty with a slice of cheese and continue cooking until the cheese is melted.

Remove the burger patties from the grill or saucepan and place them on the hamburger buns.

For the Topping: 

Drizzle a generous amount of Hidden Valley Ranch Original over the burger patties. This will add an extra layer of flavor and moisture.

Add your desired toppings such as lettuce, tomato, and onions on top of the ranch dressing. Pile on some potato chips for the crunch factor and top the burgers with the remaining bun halves and serve immediately.

What to Serve with Ranch Burgers 

One classic option is a side of french fries, which can be either baked or fried to add a crispy texture. Alternatively, you could serve a side salad, such as a Caesar salad or a garden salad, to add some freshness and balance out the meal. Other tasty options include onion rings, sweet potato fries, coleslaw, or grilled vegetables. No matter what you choose to serve with your Ranch Burgers, be sure to have plenty of condiments available, such as ketchup, mustard, mayo, or additional ranch dressing, to enhance the flavor and make your meal even more enjoyable.
