To me, the 4th of July means barbecuing with friends and family, sitting under the stars on a big blanket with all of the kids around, waiting for the fireworks to begin.
Over the years we’ve fallen into a 4th of July food rut. Basic hamburgers and hot dogs with a big bowl of watermelon and a couple bags of chips are so….easy. This year, we’re shaking things up a little with a new delicious burger with a twist. You are going to LOVE this burger. And trust me, this is NOT your ordinary run-of-the-mill burger.
This Sweet ‘n’ Southern Burger from the recipe center at Martin’s Food Markets has inspired me to look for even more tasty and simple recipes that I can make this 4th of July to add some fun variety to our celebrations.
I’ve been browsing through some of the other recipes from Martin’s Savory Recipe Center and can’t wait to try more of them. They’re made with easily accessible and affordable ingredients (which I love!) and they take the work and the worry out of planning our 4th of July events with family and friends.
Ok…back to these delicious burgers. Did I mention that they are made with ground chicken? I have fallen in love with using ground chicken to make burgers – both for the flavor and for the lower fat content. These burgers combine a few ingredients I never would have thought to pair in a burger recipe, but they work better than you could ever imagine.
Trust me. You are going to want to try this recipe! Like now. Grab your keys, head to the store, and get the ingredients. Then come back, cook it up, and let me know how much you loved it, too. Deal?
