There are no rules when and how to make burgers. I adore burgers, as well as my family. Burgers can be prepared at any time of the year and can be assembled in different ways.

I really recommend this version in case you haven’t tried it yet. But you can also check my recipe of the traditional hamburger made with a lot of love and passion.
