Our family consumes more ground meat (beef, chicken, turkey, you name it) in the summer months than any other time of the year, mostly in the form of burgers. I suspect it’s the same for many others, because those family packs of ground meat are flying off the shelves at my local supermarket.
Given the amount of burgers we all seem to be enjoying this summer, it’s always nice to change things up a bit and do something a little different to spice things up. So tell us:
Do you have any killer burger tips to share?
Maybe it’s different condiments or toppings, or a special spread. Some like to pack cheese inside the patty, and some like to add bacon bits for a new take on a bacon burger. Me, I’ve been wanting to experiment with grinding my own beef at home and creating a burger blend, and I think I’m finally taking that plunge soon. (And yes, I will be trying a version with bacon mixed in. Because, why not?)
So come share your burger tips and tricks! It doesn’t matter if your signature burger is a straight-up beef burger, or one made with chicken, salmon, black beans, mushrooms—or even if it’s an awesome burger you had at some joint somewhere that you just can’t get out of your head. Let’s mix things up at the grill and have our guests talking about our burgers well past summer!
