When You Crave a Real Burger

Burgers are a quick and easy option for lunch or dinner. They can be plain and require minimal work; or, fancy them up a bit for a unique treat.

If you’re looking for a break from plain, give this Italian burger recipe a try. Mixing additional ingredients in with the meat is sometimes the key to an excellent burger.

Try this sneaky cheeseburger recipe for another burger idea.

We love burgers by the pool in the summer or in front of the fireplace in the winter.

Burgers especially hit the spot after a long day of summer activities. Get all kinds of outdoor activity ideas on Globo Surf.

You know, when you crave a good burger, it’s not something you ignore. If it’s insanely cold, we just bust out the George Foreman grill.

Nothing beats a real, juicy burger. It’s usually nothing you can order through a drive-thru window.

The next time you are looking for tasty burger recipes, give this one a try. You might find it to be the best burger recipe you’ve made. If not, it’s easily tweak-able to create to your liking.

Use a burger press to make the hamburger even more visually appealing. The burger press helps measure appropriate-sized burgers and makes them look nicer and more uniform.

The next time a fierce burger craving strikes, don’t run to a fast food joint.

Take the time to make a juicy burger at home. It’s really the only way to squash a true craving, in my opinion!
