You guys!  Are you getting excited about summer??  It’s so close I can taste it.  And the fact that it SNOWED in April has only made me more eager for its arrival. With summer comes so many fun chances to have family and friends over.  Graduation parties, celebrating Father’s Day, the Fourth of July . . . so many fun times!  So my family and friends tend to love having burgers on the grill, but can I tell you a secret?  Making burgers makes me nervous!  Like how do you season them?  How do you make sure they stay moist? Problem solved peeps:  BLT Ranch Burgers. These start and end with Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® and they are spectacular. I love putting Hidden Valley® on my salads, I actually kind of panic when I run out of Light Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Dressing (for real, it’s not pretty), but it’s good in and on so many things!  Like these sliders or this pizza or OMG these potatoes. And now. Burgers! blt_ranch_burger_2 Start by adding a packet of Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Salad Dressing & Seasoning Mix to 80% lean ground chuck.  You are going to want one seasoning pack per pound of meat. You guys.  Don’t skimp here.  This is not the time to go for the 90%.  Trust me. blt_ranch_burger_3 Mix it in well and then divide your meat into portions for burgers.  You are aiming for about 4 ounce burgers.  You can totally eyeball it but if you have a kitchen scale, I would weigh them.  That way you don’t have to worry about some burgers getting done before others.  You know? blt_ranch_burger_4 Form them into patties that are about 4 inches wide and give them a nice indentation in the middle. Now here is the fun part.  You need some cooked bacon for this recipe.  So you can go ahead and make the burgers in the pan that you made the bacon in and you get a nice little bacon taste right in your burgers.  YUMMY!  Or you can go ahead and throw them on the grill outside. blt_ranch_burgers Top them with some provolone cheese at the tail end of cooking. blt_ranch_burger_5 And then pile them high on pretzel buns with bacon, lettuce, tomato (they are BLT burgers after all) and finally some Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Dressing.  You guys these burgers.  They turned out so amazing.  So moist and so perfectly flavored.  You are going to love them. blt_ranch_burger_7 For more great Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® recipes be sure to follow them on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.

  • Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Salad Dressing & Seasoning Mix
  • 4 slices provolone cheese
  • 4 pretzel buns

  • romain lettuce
  • 2 large tomatoes, sliced
  • 1/4 cup Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Dressing


  1. Mix together the meat and the Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Salad Dressing & Seasoning Mix until fully combined. Divide the meat into four four ounce balls and form into patties, slightly indenting them in the middle.
  2. To cook in the skillet you made the bacon in, drain the skillet of the excess fat. Heat over medium heat. Add the patties and cook for about four minutes on each side. Once flipped, add the cheese at the tail end of cooking.
  3. Build your burgers by first putting down the cooked patty, then the bacon, then the tomatoes, and lettuce, and finally add a tablespoon of Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Dressing to the top piece of the bun.
