Who needs a reason to fire up the barbecue and start grilling? I know I don’t. Every summer, I fire up my grill as often as I can. On July 4th, grilling hamburgers has become a family tradition. We’ll celebrate Independence Day with a backyard barbecue and watch fireworks with good friends. Let me share with you what we have planned for the 4th this year and share this recipe for a Chesapeake Crab Burger.
So many people I know barbecue on the 4th of July. Whether it’s in the backyard, at the lake, or out camping, it’s just the thing to do. This year, we’re staying in the city. We’ll start off watching the 4th of July parade, then have friends over for a backyard cookout. Later that night we’ll head to a favorite local park for a concert, eat watermelon, and view the fireworks. Sounds like fun to me. What do you have planned? I know grilled hamburgers will be on the menu at our house.
When it comes to grilling burgers, you can enjoy a burger thousands of different ways. You can use different meats like beef, turkey, or go vegetarian. You can top it with whatever you like to create your own special, one of a kind burger. What’s your favorite burger? What toppings do you like to add?
I recently found a great, easy recipe for a Chesapeake Crab Burger at the Giant Recipe Center. I thought the recipe sounded REALLY good and I was right! You’re going want to try this recipe too. It is a ground beef patty on a Kaiser roll, topped with shredded crab in a buttery mustard sauce. Oh my goodness! OH MY GOODNESS!! Doesn’t that sounds delicious?
The kids have been asking to have crab for dinner for a while. They absolutely love cracking the shells open and getting all the meat out of the crab legs. But when you buy whole crab like that, you’re paying for all that shell. I’m trying to stay on a budget, so crab legs don’t often make it into the cart for that very reason. I like that this recipe only uses 8 ounces of crab and it’s easy to use pre-shelled crab. It makes things easier and saves money too. You can often find it in a can near the canned tuna or in the frozen seafood section at the grocery store.
