How to Store Grilled Burgers
It’s grilling season, which means it’s time to break out the burgers! But what do you do with all those leftover burgers? Here are some tips for storing grilled burgers so they stay fresh and delicious.
First, let the burgers cool completely before storing them. Then, wrap them tightly in foil or plastic wrap and store them in the refrigerator for up to three days.
If you want to keep them longer, they can be frozen for up to two months. When you’re ready to eat, thaw the burgers in the refrigerator overnight and reheat them on the grill or in a hot skillet.
With these storage tips, you can enjoy grilled burgers all summer long!
How Long to Cook Burgers on the Grill
Grilling is a great way to cook burgers. It gives them a delicious smoky flavor and a crispy exterior. But how long should you cook them?
It depends on how you like your burgers cooked. If you like them rare, then you only need to cook them for about 3 minutes per side. If you like them medium-rare, then cook them for 4 minutes per side. And if you like them well-done, then cook them for 5 minutes per side.
Of course, these are just guidelines. The best way to know when your burger is cooked to perfection is to use a meat thermometer. Insert the thermometer into the thickest part of the burger and check the temperature.
For rare burgers, the internal temperature should be about 130 degrees Fahrenheit. For medium-rare burgers, the internal temperature should be about 140 degrees Fahrenheit. And for well-done burgers, the internal temperature should be about 160 degrees Fahrenheit.
So next time you fire up the grill, remember these tips for perfectly cooked burgers every time!

Tips for Grilling Burgers
• If desired, you can add sweet bell peppers and lettuce to your burger.

• For the best taste, choose ground meat with higher fat content.
• We suggest picking regular ground beef instead of ground round, ground chuck, or ground sirloin.
What to Serve with Grilled Burgers
Grilled burgers are a summertime classic, but figuring out what to serve with them can be a bit of a challenge.
On the one hand, you want sides that complement the rich flavor of the meat, but on the other hand, you don’t want to overwhelm the grill.
A good rule of thumb is to keep things simple. That means resisting the urge to pile on the toppings, and instead sticking to a few key ingredients.
Classic condiments like ketchup, mustard, and relish are always a good bet, or you could try something a little different, like BBQ sauce or avocado.
As for sides, potato salad and coleslaw are always popular choices, but you could also try roasted vegetables or a simple green salad.
By keeping things light and fresh, you’ll let the flavor of the burgers shine through.

Making the Grilled Burgers
Prepare the grill and heat to high.
Add ground beef, sausage, Worcestershire sauce, onion, garlic, and rosemary to a large glass bowl.
Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and combine thoroughly.
Make sure both types of meat and all seasonings are completely incorporated throughout the mixture.
Divide meat mixture into 8 equal parts and shape each part into ¾-inch thick patties.
Place patties on a lined tray and use your thumb to create an indent in the middle to keep them from puffing up while cooking.
Place patties over direct, high heat on your grill and cook for 8-10 minutes.
Flip and move burgers to indirect heat 2-3 minutes before they are done. Top with blue cheese and close lid to allow cheese to melt completely.
Transfer burgers to a platter and serve immediately on toasted hamburger buns and topped with lettuce, tomato, and avocado slices.
