If you’re like me you grew up eating a fair amount of processed foods, meat, dairy, eggs and lots of stuff that can be hard on your body. You probably don’t even know what life is like without these foods. I never did. It never occurred to me that my food choices and my struggles in life are related. I had NO IDEA how powerfully foods affected me, but I do now.
And now that I’ve experienced life OFF the crazy highs and lows of processed foods, I want you to have the GIFT of that experience.
Cooking at home is usually a “task” more than it is an event (and certainly, it is not usually something you think of as “fun”), but one thing that will usually be exciting for those who are partaking, and that will be fun to cook, is hamburgers on the grill; now, you may think of hamburgers as a “summer” food (especially when it comes to cooking it on the grill!), but you can actually grill hamburgers at any time of year, and it can be just as fun and delicious!
Starting out with good hamburger patties will be the first step to grilling delicious hamburgers; you will need to make sure you begin with good meat (organic hamburger meat is best, as it will be healthier and taste a whole lot better!), and then you will want to mix the meat with a couple eggs and perhaps some barbecue sauce (and even some chopped up yellow onions) before forming it into patties, as this will give you nicely-flavored hamburger patties to work with.
You will achieve the best taste with your hamburgers when you use charcoal, instead of gas, but you will also need to make sure you know how to work these coals; too many people make the mistake of throwing their patties on when the coals are at their hottest, but you should actually wait until the coals have started to cool a bit before you throw the patties on, as this will ensure that you get the insides of the patties cooked, as well as the outsides.
And as the patties near the end of their time above the coals, you should also grill the buns you are using until they are lightly “toasted,” and you should use the heat of the coals to melt cheese onto any patties for those who want cheeseburgers.
If you follow all these steps, you will be all set to prepare delicious hamburgers on the grill for you and your family, no matter what time of year it is!
