In our home, we pride ourselves on traditions for holidays. There is something very fun and special about tradition and food is often a good way to mark a holiday. So…..this year I decided it was time to design a fun family burger for Memorial Day. The result was awesome if I do say so myself. These burgers are flavorful, juicy, and have just the right amount of heat. Try them yourself and let me know what you think.
