Early fall is an exciting time in American homes. As the leaves change and football season begins, so does another cherished American tradition, the barbecue. The autumn months are the perfect time of year to fire up the propane grill and try some new recipes.
The Perfect Burger: This grilled burger recipe is simple and comes courtesy of Food Network star and iconic American chef Bobby Flay.
- Ingredients: 1 ½ pounds ground beef (80 percent lean), salt and black pepper, 1 ½ tablespoons canola oil, 4 slices of cheese, 4 hamburger buns.
- Directions: Form meat into ¾ inch patties (four) and make a deep impression in each burger with your thumb. Season both sides of each hamburger with salt and pepper. Heat gas grill to high and brush each patty with oil. Grill burgers until golden brown (about 3 minutes) on one side and flip burgers. Cook for an additional 3 minutes, add cheese, and grill for an additional 1-2 minutes.
