Looking for summer entertaining tips that will sure wow your guest? Bring on the little extra touches and you will be the talk of summer.

Burger Bar

Burgers are a staple of any BBQ, and I will be honest, I am a burger snob when it comes to mine.

Typical tri-packs are handy but kick up the sauces a notch, and you’ve inspired the taste buds of all your guests. This Secret Burger Sauce is sure to have your guest talking. But my favorite heat and sweet combination is this Maple-Sesame Mustard recipe topped over a Great Value Beef Burger.
