Original Ranch Cheeseburgers


Here's the recipe from Hidden Valley's site. It would probably be a better idea to caramelize some onions and add them to the Ranch burgers. Both mixes would add an awful lot of salt to your burgers.



  • 1 (1 ounce) envelope Hidden Valley Seasoning & Salad Dressing Mix
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 4 hamburger buns

Caramelized Onions

  • 1/4 cup olive oil for frying onions
  • 6 cup thinly sliced onions (approximately 3 pound)
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 3 tablespoons fresh thyme or 1 tablespoon dried thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Combine seasoning and salad dressing mix with beef and cheese.
  2. Shape into 4 patties; cook thoroughly, until meat is no longer pink in the center.
  3. Toast buns before serving, if desired.
  4. Caramelized Onions: Heat olive oil and add onions, garlic, thyme, and bay leaf.
  5. Cook, stirring occasionally, until most of the moisture has evaporated and the mixture is very soft, almost smooth, and caramelized. This takes about 45 minutes.
  6. Discard the bay leaf and season with salt and pepper.
