Make It Yourself Monday: Fuddruckers-Style Hamburger Seasoning

Fuddruckers is our go-to place for burgers. Admittedly, we’re drawn in by the condiments bar – why wouldn’t want all that fun stuff on your burger or fries?! – but the burgers themselves are really tasty too.

Now that it’s grill season, we’ve been doing burgers at home a lot more often – and I’ve been dressing them up with this Fuddruckers-style seasoning. It’s pretty close to what you get at the restaurant!

I’ve mixed it into homemade burgers, and also rubbed it into the outside of store-bought burgers – both methods work well.
