Grilled Pork Burgers – think about it – Grilled Pork Burgers! I love beef burgers but when you want to shake it up a bit using ground pork and grilling a pork burger is the way without going completely off the deep end!
As a hog farmer promoting pork seems to be the thing to do but I also love the versatility of ground pork-it doesn’t get the attention it is due! Grill it as burgers, add it to chili, add your own combination of spices to make your own sausage, replace ground hamburger in your Hamburger Helper………
But grilled pork burgers are my favorite way to use ground pork!
Serve those sandwiches with some homemade mac and cheese, cottage cheese, potato chips, baked beans – now I’m in the mood for a party!
I like a nice thick beef burger but I like a thinner pork patty – they cook up pretty quick so they are an easy late-night supper when days get hectic with fieldwork and softball games around here! Patty them out and just make sure the center of cooked to and you are good to dress your burger any way that suits you!
Just like your beef burgers, there are endless ways to dress that pork burger!
Chris’ favorite is all out deluxe, mile high, pile it on, all the garden veggie’s he can find!
Me……I love me some bbq sauce and a little more pork via the bacon route!
The kids…….plain with a slice of American Cheese – but to each his own!
Grilled Pork Burgers
Literally out of the freezer on to the grill while my Kraft mac and cheese is cooking up and we can have supper in no time flat on a weeknight. Weekends I love to make my favorite mac and cheese!
Either way – patty out your own with ground pork or pull pre-made patties out of the freezer – it’s pork and it’s good!
