Recipe Notes

We recommend toasting up the buns before assembling the burgers. To do so, spread a thin layer of butter on each part of the bun. Place on a hot cast iron skillet and toast (on the buttered side only) until golden. We used a gas grill to grill our burgers. You can use your favorite method and grill or use a grill pan on a stove top.
