Even when I know we won't be eating all eight burgers, I make the whole recipe and freeze the leftovers already grilled. Warmed in the microwave, they make a quick meal and taste fresh off the grill!—Marcille Meyer, Battle Creek, Nebraska

When I have leftover grilled burgers, I cut them up and add them to a casserole I make with noodles, corn and a cheese sauce(flour, milk, butter and cheese cooked together and poured over noodles, etc). My kids love it!
