3 Tips For Grilling Amazing Burgers this Summer

We expected many of you will be grilling this summer (or at least someone you know). The weather gets to hot that even cooking dinner on a random Tuesday can be unbearable. Here are a few tips for cooking mouth-watering hamburgers over the next few months.

Mix in olive oil: adding a little EVOO to your ground beef before you make the patties will help keep the extra-lean burgers moist while cooking.

Mix in Parmigiano-Reggiano: mixing in some parmesan cheese will to the savory tastes from the inside. Your guest will be coming back for seconds.

Grill on high: if you are looking for a truly juicy burger, cook the beef on high and not on medium or low (your burger will just dry out). Ground beef cooks easily for charbroiling it will get the best results.
