National Cheeseburger Day: See The Capital Region’s 10 Best Burgers
On the surface, cooking and building the perfect burger seems easy. But to achieve perfection creating an amazing burger takes great skill.
It all starts with a patty with the perfect ground beef combination of lean and fat. That patty needs to be cooked just right. The cheese to needs to be great. The bun needs to taste amazing and have just the right ratio of bread to meat. The balance of lettuce, tomato, onion, and other veggie toppings needs to be perfect. And condiments, well, with thousands of options and combinations - they need to have a personality that fits the burger.
