With a house full of teens hamburgers on the grill are the ideal summer or anytime go-to dinner idea. They LOVE this recipe for Smokey Barbecue Hamburgers! To keep it a bit healthier, combine different kinds of ground meats and season them using this Smokey BBQ Ketchup to bridge the smokey flavors of barbecue with the classic ketchup texture and taste. Use a mixture of ground beef, turkey, lamb, chicken….any combination works and mix in a few tablespoons of the Smokey BBQ Ketchup to the meat as you form the patties.It’s SO easy and flavorful! I am loving this ketchup collection from Victoria Amory! Look for it in a store near you or order it on her website.
