Yummy Homemade Beef Burgers Recipe - SavvyMom

You fancy yourself an adventurous soul, and you’re not afraid to make bold choices when it comes to most things in your life, including the food you eat. So, why settle for a boring and bland burger topped with ho-hum toppings (we’re looking at you tomato, onion, and relish.) If you’re looking for a burger recipe with a little more oomph, this one’s for you. We’ve packed these yummy homemade beef burgers with bold flavours, including Dijon mustard, fresh thyme leaves, and loads of grated aged white cheddar, and we’ve used the best beef we can get our hands on, to let the meat really shine.

The result? A juicy, delicious, and flavour-packed burger that you will feel proud to serve at your next bbq or family dinner. Our advice? Pass on those typical toppings and instead reach for some fresh baby arugula, sriracha mayo, and some top quality pickles. Or prep a DIY burger bar for your next gathering!
