Burger Seasoning Recipe - Add Fab Flavours
to Your Homemade Burgers and Sausages

A quality burger seasoning recipe is essential for the home hamburger maker! And this easy-to-make blend of herbs and spices is just the thing and only takes minutes to put together. And, as it's super versatile, it will also season and flavour your homemade sausages and any other recipe that uses ground pork. (See the bottom of the page for other recipes)

What You'll Need: (makes about 6-7 tablespoons)

2 tbsp dried rosemary
2 tbsp coriander seeds
1 tbsp caraway seeds (optional)
1 tbsp black peppercorns
4 tsp dried parsley
2 tsp fennel seeds
2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp mustard powder
2 tsp sea salt
2 tsp garlic powder

tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon


  • Grind the fennel, coriander, rosemary, salt, peppercorns and, if using, the caraway seeds
  • Add to a bowl
  • Stir in the mustard, chili, onion and garlic powders
  • Finally, crumble in the dried parsley and combine thoroughly

Store your burger mix in a cool palce, in an airtight jar and out of direct sunlight. Use within 3 months.

Note: Dry toasting the fennel, coriander and peppercorns before grinding and combining will add even more flavours to your finished blend and therefore your homemade burgers!

Ingredient Note: I use a few whole ingredients for this blend as these will add the best flavours and aromas. However, if you don't have them all whole simply use pre-ground powders and reduce the quantities  the recipe requires by half. So instead of 2 tablespoons of fennel seeds you use 1 tablespoon of pre-ground fennel. Do the same for all the ingredients you don't have whole and stir in with any other powders when making.
