20 Beautiful Burgers to Make This Summer


It’s summer! So many burgers to make, so little time.  Luckily, you can easily enjoy burgers all year round, but they’re especially good when the weather is hot and the barbeque is fired up. My kids love when we have a burger night, because they like to build their very own burgers just the way they want them.


With the help of my fellow Canadian food bloggers, I’ve created this burger round-up to help get your started with your summer burger adventures. Plus, I’m sharing with a printable burger template for more inspiration. Whether you’re a meat-lover, vegan or vegetarian, you’re sure to find something delicious in this incredible list you’ll want to try. Plus, I’ve created a meal template to inspire your own burger creations. Seriously, you’ll never run out of ideas for burgers with this blog post handy. So what are you waiting for? Let’s get out there and make some beautiful burgers!
