An American classic, this burger will keep grill-masters happy and guest appetites even happier. The beef patty can easily be dressed up or down and still be just as mouth-watering for barbeque and picnic celenrations. Juicy cheeseburgers are always a summer favorite but if we're being honest, this recipe stays in rotation all year long. Try it out and we know you'll agree.
