Sometimes, there's just no way to beat a burger craving but by having a delicious juicy hamburger complete with all the works. Though many choose to cruise along a drive thru or call the delivery line for an instant burger fix, we all know it's not good for our family's health to go running to a fast food joint every time we want something filling and tasty.
National Hamburger Month is the perfect time to learn how to make great hamburgers right in out own homes. The best part is, we can modify the burgers to our taste and the possibilities are endless!
Beef burger is always a classic. There are a few things more comforting than a juicy beef patty enveloped in two pieces of freshly baked buns, especially on a stressful day. Making your own beef patty is not as difficult as it seems. Basically, you just need ground beef, some salt. You can make your patty more flavorful by adding herbs, spices, and whatever else tickles your palate. Your imagination is the limit!
