SPARKS, Md. (Tuesday, May 20, 2014) – Just in time for Memorial Day weekend, McCormick, a global leader in flavor, is introducing new seasoning mix-ins for burgers to help grillers make juicy masterpieces at home.
“Burgers are a common ‘go-to’ choice for the grill, but it’s not just about shaking salt and pepper on a patty anymore,” said Chef Kevan Vetter of the McCormick Kitchens. “We’re seeing more and more ‘better burgers,’ with grillers mixing flavor into the ground meat, stuffing with cheese and chilies and piling high with unique toppings, from potato chips to Asian pickled vegetables.”
New Grill Mates Steakhouse Burger Seasonings
Each Steakhouse Burger seasoning packet contains enough big, bold flavor to season four to six patties (one pound of ground meat) and give grillers the opportunity to make their own restaurant-quality burgers at home:
- Smoky Applewood Seasoning: Add smoke to burger night along with chili pepper, molasses and cider vinegar.
- Steakhouse Mushroom Seasoning: Create a steakhouse burger with mushroom, onion, garlic and black pepper.
- Classic Burger Seasoning: This blend of onion, mustard, garlic and red bell pepper is a favorite.
