Greek Burger

Burgers. You might think they're overdone, especially around this time of year. It always seems like someone is coming out with the new over-the-top burger and has new tips for making the perfect burger. But that's the thing about them, they don't get old. And you don't get tired of them. 

Burgers are always being reinvented in more ways than one, and each person seems to have their go-to recipe or hold fast to the way their mom or dad cooked them growing up. And that's what's so great about them, whether they're made from beef, turkey, chicken, or even chickpeas, stuffed with cheese, topped with lobster, or just ketchup and maybe a pickle, they all fall under the fabulous category of burgers. You can have them any way you like, and there are endless ways to make them.

So if you're looking to experiment and stray from your usual stand-by recipe, take a shot at one of the burgers below and let us know what you think.
