It’s never too early for burger season

It’s burger season, baby!

Dust off the patio and fire up the grill: we’re heading into burger season. If you’re like us, “burger season” is a year-round sport, but for some, grilling is saved for sunnier days. Helloooooo, spring weather!

We recommend kicking things off with a burger that will set the tone for the rest of season. If you need convincing that it’s anything other than a blended burger, check out Bon Appétit’s “4 Benefits to Making a Blended Burger” (spoiler: they’re delicious).

For those with grills still buried under snow, there’s hope: You can make delicious blended burgers indoors, just like Bon Appétit senior food editor Chris Morocco. Whip up his blended double-patty smashburgers (recipe below) – guaranteed to get you in the burger season mood.

Happy Blending!

“There is so much flavor and texture going on in this burger. You could honestly add mushrooms to any kind of burger blend you wanted to make; it’s just going to add that intense level of savory depth to it.”
