When a burger craving hits, it’s hard to resist. There’s a level of satisfaction only a good burger can deliver. That extra juicy, extra meaty patty, that pillowy soft bread, those choice toppings that make that patty shine—every component plays a part with every bite. It’s a mixture of textures, tastes, and aromas all in the cup of your hands. The quickest fix to this insatiable craving might be the nearest burger joint, but it’s not the best.
The best burger fix? Make your own burger! You know your own taste buds better than a fast food line cook or maybe even a chef. When you’re in control, you’re not limited by what’s available on the menu.
Do you think it’s too much of a hassle? It’s not! Most of these recipes can be made in less than an hour. Plus, you can prep your patties ahead, and cook them when you want them. We must say though, that the best time to cook them has to be when you’re grilling with your favorite people as company and meal companions.
