Happy 4th of July!
Is there anything better than a good old fashioned hamburger to celebrate the country’s independence? Some might make an argument for the hot dog, and it would be a solid argument. But for me, the burger is where it’s at on July 4th.
The upscale burger craze has been well documented on menus, and on finding patrons’ wallets as more indulgent (i.e. expensive) ingredients are being added to burgers in a quest to be named the best.
And while I can appreciate a chef’s drive to come up with that winning combination of gourmet meets comfort food, this holiday is all about grilling. Back yard BBQs. Beers with friends. Good times had by all. I think that’s something the Founding Fathers would be proud of.
