  • 1 lb. meatloaf mix or ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons barbecue sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Ranch dressing
  • ¾ cup bread crumbs
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ cup diced onion optional
  • ¼ cup Olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon chili powder can also use paprika
  • Additional barbecue sauce to top with if desired
  • Lettuce and tomato
  • Cheese slices if desired


  1. Preheat the grill to medium heat (400 degrees)
  2. In a medium, bowl mix together the barbecue sauce, ranch dressing, bread crumbs, garlic powder, pepper and onion.
  3. Add in the beef and blend well. Do not over mix.
  4. If using the hamburger press, form beef mixture into four equal balls. Place some wax paper or foil down on your counter. Rip off five pieces of wax paper (about 8” each) and set aside. Place one of the pieces on a dinner plate. Set aside.
  5. Mix together the olive oil and chili powder in a small bowl. Pour ½ teaspoon of olive oil on the wax paper or foil to prevent sticking.
  6. Place one ball at a time into the hamburger press and press down to a form hamburger patty. Remove the hamburger patty from the press and place on the wax paper on the plate. Add another ½ teaspoon of olive oil onto the top of the patty and spread around. Place a piece of wax paper on top of that and repeat until all four patties are made and coated with olive oil.
  7. If not hamburger press, form four patties by hand.
  8. Cook about 8 minutes on each side.
  9. If adding cheese, place on the hamburger at the last two to three minutes.
  10. Place on roll with lettuce, tomato or your choice of toppings. Add a little more barbecue sauce if desired.
