While the taste of a perfectly charred patty fresh off the grill is delicious, it’s not always a possibility. Maybe you’re not a natural-born grill master. (Which knob turns on the grill again?) Maybe you’re out of propane, maybe you don’t feel like cleaning the grates after or maybe you don’t have access to a grill at all. Thankfully, tasty burgers are always an option with a nonstick skillet and stovetop, or a baking sheet and oven. These three recipes show you how to pan-fry, bake and yes, grill burgers. Even better? There’s a burger for any way you eat — from a ground beef classic to veggie and blended styles.
