9 Great Ideas for Burgers (for your Labor Day cookout)


A Great Idea Thursdays roundup of 9 burger recipes for your Labor Day cookout (or any time)

9 Great Ideas for Burgers (for your Labor Day cookout):  A Great Idea Thursdays roundup of 9 burger recipes for your Labor Day cookout (or any time)

To many Labor Day marks the end of summer.  Time to get out your cool weather clothes and go back to school.  I'm no longer in school but it does feel like summer is coming to a close (although I think the official end of summer isn't until the 22nd of September).  Maybe because so much of our lives revolves around the school year whether you are in school, have children, or not.  Long weekend holidays in the summer months always call for cookouts.  I think people crave to be outside and absorb as much of the summer sun and warmth as you can to get through the winter.  So if you need some ideas for your cookout I've gathered some burger recipes from the Great Idea Thursdays linkparty and a couple of my own).

  11. Thanks Michelle, and thanks for the party. If you like making bread you should definitely try making your own buns. It's pretty simple and I like that they are soft but don't get soggy like a lot of store bought buns.
