I live up in Canada where we have 4 very distinct seasons. Each season has it’s plus and minuses, and for me, many of them revolve around food. It’s getting flipping cold up here right now. And while I love the winter for the warm and comforting foods that seem to appear on the table each night, I do miss my grill.

While I won’t complain about the cold months, I will absolutely share my enthusiasm about harvesting our fresh veggies from the garden and cooking on the grill 4-5 nights per week. I just love homemade hamburgers on a sourdough bun topped with fresh garden vegetables. Add a side of roasted veggies and I never need to change up my dinner menu!!!

These homemade hamburger patties are my absolute favorite to make. They are quick and easy, and deliver a juicy and flavorful patty every time. Best of all, everyone in my family loves them, and I can’t pass up on things that my littles ones devour. I can’t believe I used to just form ground beef into a patty and grill; what was I thinking! I hope you enjoy these as much as my family does.

What are you favorite hamburger toppings? Here it’s mustard, ketchup, pickles, lettuce, bacon, tomatoes and cheese.
