Build Your Own Burger

Posted by Lori:
While waiting in the dentist office a few days ago, I flipped through a magazine....probably a magazine I subscribe to, but haven't had the time or taken the time to look through at home! (Better Homes & Gardens...I think)
Anyway, there was a really neat idea for burgers.  Our family tried it yesterday and we really enjoyed it!  The kids thought it was lots of fun!
Directions:  Get out "add ins" you want for your burgers.  We used chopped onion, bacon, shredded cheddar cheese, barbeque sauce, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper.  I remember the magazine listing pickles, but no one wanted those inside the burger, so we just added them on top with lettuce and tomato after they cooked.
Place a ball of hamburger meat in a small zip top bag.  Add to the meat your desired add ons and form into patty.   (Too much cheese may make burgers fall apart!).
In our family of six, we needed to mark the burgers to keep them straight.
Cut the top side (not the very top, but the side you want to be the top) of the baggie down both seamed edges, making it easy to flip the burgers out of the bag and onto the grill.  Grill until meat is no longer pink, turning once.  Serve with hamburger buns, desired condiments, and other add ons.

Not only will your burgers be delicious, but most of all, these burgers are fun and get everyone involved in the preparation! Happy grilling!
