Burgers are an American thing. I mean, folks in other nations often think that burgers are all we eat here in the States. When I lived in France, it was a common question.

While I certainly don’t eat hamburgers every day, I will confess that it’s on our meal rotation on a weekly basis. Sometimes we get burgers out, but the whole family prefers it when we make burgers at home. Particularly with a side of Parmesan Potato Coins.

Homemade burgers aren’t difficult to make, but there are some tricks to elevate them a little beyond your average grocery store variety burger. Check out these burger recipes you will want to include in your next backyard BBQ.

Everything Burger Buns

I started making homemade burger buns to save money. Sure, you can get them on sale in the summer, but the good quality ones are rarely cheap. Plus, homemade buns are so good. These Everything Burger Buns are extra special with the flavors of an “everything” bagel.

Making burger patties for the freezer

I love making burger patties for the freezer because I can custom make my burgers according to size, quality, and meat type. Having a stash in the freezer makes for super quick meal prep for those nights when you’re short on time.

    Our local burger place makes their own homemade buns and sells the leftovers from the day before for a donation to charity. If we are having burgers, I will often stop by there and pick up 6 buns for a $1-$2 donation and they are much better than store bought. Score!
