No matter whether you’re a skinny patty person, a thick patty person, or a vegetarian burger aficionado, we’ve got a burger recipe for you. We’ve got cheese-stuffed burgers, turkey burgers, and even salmon burgers. Read on to see some of our favorite patty recipes to keep you happily grilling all summer long.
Among our beloved burger spices and sauces, these two stand out, and are necessary to make our Ultimate Cheeseburger: Ultimate Burger Seasoning and Burger Bomb Sauce. The former is an umami-packed mix of Parmesan, Worcestershire sauce, powdered porcini mushrooms and roasted garlic. The latter is a special sauce boasting mayo, dill pickles, ketchup, spicy brown mustard, and cayenne, along with other addictive spices. When these two power agents meet top-notch beef and cheddar cheese, you don’t need more than a roll for one of the best burgers ever.
If you’re going to go in for a more healthful meat than beef, such as chicken or turkey, you might want to do it up with the toppings. This patty is plenty flavorful on its own, but when it’s drizzled in a bourbon barbecue sauce and topped with sautéed mushrooms and Monterey Jack, it’s next-level tasty.
Speaking of the intersection of good-for-you and darn good, these Omega-3-packed salmon burgers will please any pescatarian at the party. Boasting a bevy of heavy-hitting herbs and spices like cilantro, turmeric, cumin, coriander, these are as good as any meat equivalent. We also love slathering this light, bright cucumber-red onion relish on top.
Be sure to get your grill good and clean with a brush before making these delicate, delicious lamb-beef patties. Each patty features a booming mix of mint, parsley, shallot and rosemary. The whole thing tucks into a pita alongside shredded greens, creamy feta and a robust mint-pine nut pesto. These make an excellent break from beef.
Portobello mushrooms are meaty, it’s true, but they need a bit more oomph to get to “satisfying meal” territory. This spicy, lemony chickpea topping does the trick for this yummy burger. A garlicky cucumber-yogurt mixture takes the whole thing into “Greek salad” territory, in the very best way.
Beans, the low-fat superheroes of vegetarian cuisine, are the key to this unusual artichoke “burger.” Tender butter beans, artichokes, and butter beans combine with spinach, lemon zest and cumin for a flavor-saturated patty. A topping of tomatoes, olive oil and feta take the whole thing over the top.
