Triple Cheese Hamburger

The summer season may be over but that does not mean that burger season has to end just yet. One of the worlds favourite meals or some would say snack the Hamburger is being made in so many different ways that I could not help but to try my hand at one and the results where terrific for this palate. I have been eating burgers for as long as I can remember, as a kid my great grandma would make one for us at lunch time and we would woof them down in a heartbeat hoping that we could have another made on the grill.

People like a variety of sized burgers, I feel that the 1/4 pound burger is sufficient and lets you enjoy the condiments and ingredients better, too much burger takes away from the flavours that we want to enjoy with our burger. You can top your burger anyway you like once its done, but what everyone needs to remember is that when making a burger just let it cook once per side and don't press the burger hoping to cook it faster or you will dry it out as this lets the juice escape. You can pan grill the burgers indoors or even use a skillet with a little butter. I decided to load the cheese, triple cheese burger, why have one type only?
