Go on a burger road trip in your own backyard. Grill the patties and load them sky high. Peanut butter and bacon make them southern style; coleslaw and tomatoes, a northern version. —Susan Mahaney, New Hartford, New York

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 25, 2014

This was a very simple, yet flavorful recipe. This is now my go-to recipe for doing burgers on the grill. They held together very well and everyone was able to customize their burger just the way they liked it.
