4th of July Burgers

About three times a summer my husband and I have bbqs at our house. We invite the softball team, friends and family up from time to time for some good r&r.

I made these burgers two years ago for a MU football tailgate and they were a huge hit! I like to throw some crushed red pepper flakes in for a kick every once in awhile.

Be careful adding too much bbq sauce. You want the mixture to still hold together when it's grillin' up.

Be sure to butter your hamburger buns and toast them on the grill! No hamburger is complete without a buttery, toasted bun, with melted cheese.

Have a happy and safe 4th of July with your friends and family!

Lane's Holiday Burgers

1 lb. hamburger
¼ cup finely chopped onion
1 tsp. basil
½ tsp. oregano
1T. garlic powder
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
Some sprinkles of Lawry’s season salt
½ tsp. pepper
About ¼ cup bbq sauce

Add all ingredients in order in a large bowl. Mix lightly and form burgers.

Serve these burgers this holiday with all the trimmings…

I suggest these sides dishes:
Fried Okra
Potato Salad (save yourself some time this holiday and buy this)
Chips or fried taters
Grilled Fruit for dessert
