We have a lot of great recipes on this blog, some that I absolutely love. And there are so many different types of food that I just can't get enough of - for me that would mainly be Mexican and Italian dishes. But when all that is said and done I will always have to say that my favorite thing to eat is a good burger (or at least in the top 3). Specifically, a grilled burger; in my mind that is the only way to have a burger.
After many years of grilling burgers, I have, in my mind, perfected the ultimate summer burger. It is perfect because it is delicious, and I admit whenever I make them I get lots of compliments, so I think that I am not alone in thinking this is one fine burger.
There are many fantastic gourmet burgers out there, and while I don't know that this is in the ranks of a gourmet burger, it is easy to make at home with ingredients you likely have on hand. Also, it has oats in it, making it a healthy burger - right? So start your grills, light the Independence Day fireworks and enjoy one of the greatest things of summer, grilled hamburgers.
