Recipe Notes and Variations
- We love topping burgers with some homemade pickles.
- If you have leftover sauce, be sure to save it for topping other sandwiches and wraps.
- While you’ve got the grill going, try grilling any excess veggies you have around, or throw some peaches or pineapple you have around on the grill for an easy dessert.
