Memorial Day Grilling

They say Memorial Day Weekend marks the unofficial kick-off to summer, and in my house, that means a lot more grilling of delicious meats.

When grilling, my family doesn't stray too much from our trusty favorites of steaks, hamburgers, brats, hotdogs, and pork chops. (I love grilled chicken, but my husband doesn't like to grill it.) If burgers are what YOU will be grilling this holiday weekend, let me ask you this; what do you think makes the perfect burger?

Is it the amount of pink in the middle?

Is it the seasonings applied to the meat?

Is it the extras you put on top of the delicious slab of beef?

I think we can agree that everyone has their own version of the perfect burger, so if you're going to enjoy a burger at a local restaurant, a variety of options is key to being the best.
