Burgers are the rulers of Summer Sandwich Land. A seasonal place where BLTs and turkey clubs are cast aside, and you can forget about peanut butter and jellies — they've been banished. Burgers sit high on their golden (and lightly toasted) bun-thrones with ample toppings and condiment smears. They are hearty, juicy, and can handle the grill heat — plus there are plenty of different options (turkey burgs, salmon burgs, veggie burgs).
If you share in this loyalty to the head honcho of summer sandwiches, then perhaps you've already marked your calendars for National Burger Day this coming Sunday. And if you haven't, well what the hell are you waiting for? While you pencil that in, we rounded up a few recipes — so you can pay your respects to this stately warm weather staple by making and eating a batch of hamburgers.
