It’s #burgermonth ya’ll! A month long celebration of BURGERS. And this epic Garlic Green Chile Bacon Burger just freaking knocked my socks off.

This is my favorite time of year! It starts to warm up, the grills start roaring, and allllll those good burgers start getting grilled. Seriously though, what gets better?! Also, May is National Burger month! The most awesome thing ever am I right? There is a BURGER CELEBRATION happening over at Girl Carnivore this month! A bunch of all my best blogging friends have all gotten together to make burgers. all.. month. long. Follow along #burgermonth to see all the scrumptious recipes!

Also, there are some super duper awesome giveaways going on in part of this celebration! Here is the link to those giveaways: Trust me. You’ll want to enter!

The secret ingredient and my new favorite ingredient for burgers, is Challa Buns. CHALLA BUNS are the most game changing buns to sandwich a burger. You have to, have to, try a chill bun next time you make a burger.
