Make It Now Cooking Directions

These directions are for cooking this recipe to serve immediately and NOT to freeze for later.

  1. In a bowl, combine beef, cheddar cheese, and ranch dressing mix.
  2. Gently shape into patties of equal size and thickness. With your thumb, or the back of a spoon, make a shallow indentation about 1 inch wide in the center of each patty. This helps the patties to cook evenly.
  3. Grill patties over direct high heat until cooked to medium doneness, turning once.
  4. Serve on hamburger buns.

Freeze For Later Cooking Directions

  3. Place a small square of waxed paper between each patty and divide patties equally between indicated number of gallon freezer storage bags. Label and freeze.

  1. Omigosh these are so good! My whole family devoured them! I used a 1 oz. envelope of ranch dressing powder, and overflowed my 1 cup measure a little bit with the shredded cheddar, and it gave them a fantastic flavor. I think I might add some bacon pieces next time I make them. They were a huge hit. Thank you! I would recommend one thing, though. Use low fat ground beef. I used 93% lean and still had to drain off some fat between cooking each set of patties (on the stove), but the cheese crisps up at the edges and it’s DELICIOUS!

  2. I made these with a twist. I got manager special ground turkey that I used, and silly me grabbed an extra bag of mozzarella instead of cheddar so I used that, still ended up amazing! Probably going to be a meal always on hand 🙂
