A couple simple burger rules: Don't work the meat too much, don't press them on the grill and burgers are perfect every time.

Everybody loves cheeseburgers. Well, at least James does. And burgers are the original American style simple supper. When I get home late and don't have a chance to set something in the ever-reliable crock pot burgers are the answer. We like them plain -- a good mix of ground beef (like the delicious mix sold by the Hearst Ranch or something quickly ground in the food processor) with just salt and pepper (sometimes with a little butter in the middle or brushed on top) broiled in the oven or slapped on the grill. Everyone has their favorite toppings, but for our quick dinner -- a california classic. Bacon, avocado, and James' favorite, nutty delicious Gruyere cheese.
