Family-Friendly Faves: Burgers & Slaw

A flavorful duo the family will love

When the summer months hit, there is nothing like firing up the grill and hearing the sizzle of a fresh burger cooking over the coals. Don’t settle for burger boredom all summer long by adding just a few seasonings. Bring some new flavors to the mix and tickle those taste buds in the process. For my Best BBQ Burgers recipe, I add a mix of sauces with soup mix to bring out a flavorful, cheese filled burger that’s far from average or every day. Add a different take on cole slaw to your dinner table with my Cole Slaw Crunch recipe and you have a flavorful mix that just begs to be made all summer long.
