I am a big fan of hamburgers. There is nothing better than a burger straight off the grill with a toasted bun topped with lettuce, tomato, and some good mayo. Know matter how you like yours dressed up, first you have to get the burger right. I think after years of trying I have found the best burger ever thanks to Ina Garten’s cookbook Barefoot Contessa Back to Basics. When I made these a couple of months ago I thought maybe it was just a fluke that they were out of this world. I made them again this weekend and they were fabulous. They are very simple. Give them a try and let me know if you get the same results. Ina’s recipe calls for Niman Ranch ground meat which you can buy in some grocery stores in this area or you can order it on-line. It is beef grown all naturally without antibiotics and primarily grass-fed. My beef came from Tommy Waldrop here in Douglasville. Anyway, start with some good ground beef and the rest is just a breeze!
