And so the quest for the perfect grilled burger continues. Not that there is such a thing as the quintessential recipe when it comes to grilled burgers. I’ve been grilling up burgers for years and have yet to find one recipe that outshines all others. Truth be told, each blend of ingredients brings its own signature distinction to the grill. Just as the buns and toppings bring something to the plate. Burgers on grilled sourdough bread (such as patty melts) doesn’t necessarily upstage burgers on a buttery brioche bun or toasted onion bun.
