There are some times when a juicy burger is the only thing that will hit the spot. If you're in a spicy mood, you can add jalapenos. If you're in a veggie mood, you can load up with avocado, tomato, lettuce and onions. If you're in a bacon and cheese mood, add some bacon and cheese. If you want to be sophisticated, mix some balsamic vinegar and fresh minced garlic in the beef. The possiblities are endless. We like adding some ground pork to our ground beef. It gives it a little something extra. There are also lots of different ways to cook burgers. Here are a few ideas.
1 (ish) pound ground beef
