Recipe Notes

This is a basic hamburger recipe. It can be dressed up or dressed down depending on the seasonings you wish to include and the toppings you put on the burger itself.  Consider putting your favorite cheese between two thin patties, sealing it in, then grilling your burger for a “Juicy Lucy.” Swap out the pork and beef for chicken or turkey, and add sage to the spices you use. Make the basic burger and then dress up the bun with avocado, pineapple, roasted red peppers, onions, salsa, cheese, bacon, ham — the possibilities are endless.  Create as many new flavors throughout the summer as you can!
