According to Wikipedia, Memorial Day began in 1868 as a day to honor the Union soldiers who died in the Civil War. Today, we honor all those who have lost their lives in service for our country, and it has also become a tradition for many to visit the graves of their loved ones as well.
We’re coming up to another Memorial Day weekend, and you know what that means. Get out the grill! If you’re like me, you don’t want another boring burger. I have been frying these burgers inside, but with summer around the corner, we’ll be doing these on the grill.
Garlic Dijon Burgers
- 1 1/2 lb ground beef
- 3 Tbsp creamy Dijon mustard
- 6 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 C onion, minced
- 1 Tbsp seasoned salt
- 6 slices Monterey Jack cheese
Mix beef, mustard, garlic, onion, and salt together. Form 6 patties. Cook 5 minutes on each side. Place one slice of cheese on each patty and cover with top bun while cheese melts, approximately 1 minute.
