14 Days left in National Burger Month
Do you have your burger recipes ready?
8 Days left until Memorial Day weekend has grills lighting up across the country.
One of the most popular items on grills across the nation over Memorial Day is the burger – which makes it pretty natural that Memorial Day is also widely acknowledged as National Hamburger Day. While the recipes, ingredients, and toppings for burgers are varied and widely disputed – there is one hard and fast, tried and true rule that all burger enthusiasts agree upon.
Do not squash the burger with your spatula while it’s cooking!
That flare up that thrills you so much every time you do that, that’s you pressing all the juice and flavor out of your burger to feed the flames. While that makes the flames happy, it leaves your burger sad and lacking. Just don’t do it – I don’t care what you saw on that fancy cooking show.
Burgers deserve respect, and shouldn’t be rushed. This is definitely an instance where patience pays off.
Whether you’re a traditionalist who loves rich, meaty burgers laden with mustard, pickles, onions, lettuce, ketchup and a toasted sesame seed bun or you’re a burger lover who happens to prefer their burgers chock full of quinoa, chickpeas, and black beans – there’s a burger for you in this round-up for you.
