May is National Burger Month, which is a great excuse to expand your burger repertoire. Here, seven classic styles to work your way through the month.
A Wisconsin specialty, the butter burger involves buttering the buns before grilling them, topping the burger with butter or stuffing the patty itself with butter. We like the tactic of brushing the patties with butter as they grill; the natural sugars caramelize, making the meat extra delicious.
Crispy, griddled smashed burgers are reminiscent of old-school, drive-in-style burgers. Smashing the patties results in a crispy crust and tons of delicious charred flavors.
