Try our firecracker burger for some explosive taste.

Hamburger patty or pattie anyone? Both terms seem to work, but I think pattie is probably the more common spelling in England. Whatever the spelling, this burger is a firecracker all right!

This ground beef recipe will make a delicious quarter pounder burger, though I sometimes increase patty (pattie?) size to get a more robust taste. This is a delicious, easy to prepare barbecue hamburger recipe, which always produces great results.

So go ahead and enjoy.
