We would like to extend our heartfelt congratulations to the people of the United States of America for once again affirming our burger supremacy. According to the hardworking statisticians at Burger Business, Americans consumed 9 billion of them last year. And that doesn't include all your off-brand turkey or veggie varieties. Nine billion beef burgers. That's 28 burgers for every person in the country and represents a jump of more than 260 million from last year. If you didn't make your quota of 28 last year, you'd better get going for 2015. Here are six recipes to get you started.
