Ranch Cheddar Burgers {Freezer Style}


Summer burgers are the best when there’s little or no prep work. How about a new twist on plain burgers? We’ve flavored our local beef with two heaping tablespoons of homemade ranch dry mix, which is easy and fabulous for French Dip sandwiches. Throw in a couple handfuls of cheese and your mouth should be watering. We love how easy and fresh these taste pulled from the freezer. Thaw them twenty-four hours and take them camping, hiking, picnicing or potlucking. You won’t be sorry you invested about ten minutes in prep work like this tutorial.

Ranch Cheddar Burgers {Freezer Style}


  • 2 pounds lean beef or turkey
  • 2 cups shredded cheese (we like sharp)
  • 2 heaping tablespoons of homemade ranch or store-bought dry mix


  1. Mix all the ingredients well with your kitchen aid mixer and paddle attachment. Shape into 8 patties and freeze in a gallon size freezer bag or divide among two quart size freezer bags. Layer sheets of wax paper or foil in between while stacking. Squeeze air out and freeze.Thaw 24 hours.
  2. Cooking day: Grill or broil on medium high until done and juices run clear. Place a slice of cheese on top if desired and top burger with your favorite toppings.

    I found a package of ground turkey on sale yesterday and bought it just to make these. I put four in the freezer yesterday and look forward to trying them Memorial Day. I have recently discovered your website and love it!

    We made these the other night. Even my picky eaters loved them. They were so easy and had such great flavor. I will definitely make them again. Thank you!
