Grilled Burger

These simple burgers are easy to put together and harken back to the reason why burgers became an American classic.

These are great burgers to serve with the classic do it yourself options of sliced tomato, cheese, ketchup, and mustard. We also recommend an 85/15 mixture for the ground beef, if you’re not grinding your own meat.
