Summer is a big grilling season several of us enjoy and there’s something celebratory about entertaining family and friends when you fire up the grill.

Burgers are easy to make and they always taste great when served up outdoors. Not to mention, they are truly adaptable. You can add variations of condiments and toppings like I do in my Onion and Pepper Stacked Sheep Burger recipe.
