For these burgers, the secret isn’t in “the sauce”, it’s in the seasoning. So put together whatever hamburger ground you enjoy, then coat each side with a hearty layer of this mix. Don’t worry about overdoing it, this will make the perfect amount for four hamburgers.




4 (5 oz) ground beef patties (about 1 ¼ lbs)
½ tbsp. chili powder
½ tbsp. onion powder
½ tbsp. garlic salt
½ tsp cinnamon
A pinch of freshly ground black pepper

1 romaine lettuce head, leaves separated and washed.
Optional: American cheese or your favorite garnishments like a ripe tomato, mayo, mustard, and no-sugar-added ketchup.



1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (you can also use a grill)
2. Begin with your pre-formed hamburgers (this recipe isn’t about the meat, but about the seasoning!)
3. Place them in a grated cast-iron pan (this will keep the burgers from sitting in their own oils) or a pre-heated grill.
4. In a bowl, combine chili powder, onion powder, garlic salt, cinnamon and pepper.
5. Sprinkle ½ the mixture over the patties, and rub.
6. Flip the patties, and use the rest of the mix on the other sides.
7. Put the cast iron pan with the hamburgers in the oven and cook until meat reaches your desired doneness.
8. If desired, add cheese now and return to the oven until cheese is melted.
9. Serve on a bed of romaine leaves for wrapping, and add your favorite burger condiments.


A rare burger is 140, medium rare is 145, medium is 160, well done is 170. Also, watch out for high-sugar ketchup. Big brand ketchups contain 5g of carbohydrates, mostly sugar, in one tablespoon. Most small batch ketchups have 1-2g.
