Beef 'n' Pork Burgers Recipe

The combination of ground beef and pork is the secret behind these juicy burgers. The never-fail burgers are ideal for summer grilling, so I depend on them time and again. Everyone loves them. Plus, you can easily double or triple the recipe for large get-togethers.—Sharon Adamczyk, Wind Lake, Wisconsin
