On the Grill – Burgers

Grilling is a fantastic way to make a meal and because we live in Arizona, we can grill year round. We tend to grill commonly grilled foods and haven’t ventured into the land of new foods so these might seem common but they taste oh, so yummy!

Burgers are an American staple. Top them with their favorite things. These make 8 standard size patties. You can make smaller patties by dividing the meat mixture into more pieces.

And of course, you’ll need your favorite hamburger buns. A lot of times we make our own buns from scratch, either plain or onion. We always server our burgers with fries, usually homemade double fried french fries. A fresh salad would make a wonderful side, as well.
