  • 1 ½ pounds lean ground beef
  • ½ onion finely chopped
  • ½ cup shredded Colby Jack or Cheddar cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1 ounce envelope dry onion soup mix
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon crushed dried rosemary
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil the grate.
  • Meanwhile, combine ground beef, onion, cheese, egg, onion soup mix, minced garlic, garlic powder, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, parsley, basil, oregano, rosemary, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Use your hands to form the mixture into 4 patties.
  • Cook patties on the preheated grill until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 4 to 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
