Nothing says summer like a burger hot off the grill — right? In this episode, we’re taking a closer look at hamburgers. From how to make a killer burger (all year long) to tips for cooking them on a grill, we’ve got everything you need to master one of the great foods. And, yes, we talk veggie burgers too.
How to Build Better Burgers
We know — we also we can’t believe that we did an entire episode about how to cook hotdogs for dinner before we did one about burgers. After all, burgers are all but synonymous with kid-friendly meals, especially in summer. While we mostly focus on classic beef burgers, this episode is dedicated to all burgers, from chicken to pork to the elusive delicious veggie burger (it’s possible!). And we share our favorite toppings too.
