What is it that makes burgers so amazing that they deserve to have a whole month named after them?

They’re easy

All you have to do is make a patty, grill it up and dress it.

They’re versatile

You can keep them simple, or add an array of toppings.

Create your patties with quality Certified Angus Beef ® brand or mix up the flavors with lamb from the American Lamb Board or ground poultry. You can even go the all veggie route.

In celebration of National #BurgerMonth, I’ve created a flavor-packed custom burger recipe just for you. I call it the Big Easy Muffaletta Burger. Inspired by the signature New Orleans sandwich, it’s loaded with deli meats, cheese and olive spread.

What could make #BurgerMonth even better? How about free stuff!!!

Fellow girl griller Kita over at Girl Carnivore (follow her) coordinated some awesome giveaways, just in time for grilling season. And this wasn’t some dorky giveaway. This was some real kickin’ swag. We’re talking about a grill, lamb, cheese, grilling tools, gift cards and more. Unfortunately, the contest is now over. But stay tuned. We’ll have more giveaways in the future.
