Did you know, for example, when grilling a burger it’s a good idea to poke a small hole entirely through the middle of the patty? This prevents the burger from bulging and allows it to cook evenly. It also prevents the need to press down on the burger while grilling, which does nothing but flare up flames and allow the juicy goodness to escape …

Be sure to try Sevenfold Spice burger seasoning. It’s made with a blend of salt, pepper, granulated garlic and onion, a tiny bit of cayenne, and other spices … really good!
