7 Burgers for Summer

June 13, 2012

Summer's about freedom, right? We're all about the freedom of choice here at FOOD52 -- especially when it comes to burgers. Lamb burger, or shrimp burger? Spicy beef burger, or sweet-savory beef burger? We've got them all: a summer filled with choices. Now, the final question: wine or beer?

Why no mention of a veggie burger!! Not everyone is a meat-consumer!

One tip for mini-burger buns. Use English muffins. They store well and are the perfect size and just the right crunch for burgers when toasted, and nooks and crannies hold sauces, mayo well.

Give me a traditional juicy cheese burger . Basic wins out says the old school chef.
