Nothing says summer and backyard BBQs like a big juicy burger! And since summer is in full swing, it’s only right to get a burger bucket list going! Whether you’re craving something fishy or a burger made with chicken, lamb, mushroom, or beef… all of these burgers are amazing and will add quite the variety to your palette and menu! So get the grill fired up and ready for a delicious summer of big juicy burgers with the best in burger recipes!
Cute story… a couple years ago our neighbors across the street invited us over for a cookout. They had a fantastic spread of fancy cheeses and great little nibbles and burgers. But not just any burger. It may have been the most amazing burger I’ve ever eaten. So I ask our sweet hostess what she put into the the burger and I love her response, “After we moved from Lithuania, no one taught me how to make a burger. So I started mixing garlic and herbs together with the ground beef and this is what I came up with.”
I was amazed at the delicious concoction she put together for “not knowing how to make a burger”. And I think she was amazed that most burgers are merely ground up meat pressed together. No special seasoning. No fancy herbs.
Now here’s my confession… even though I make a mean turkey burger, I still typically think of a burger in a stereotypical beef burger sort of way. So for all of you still asking “Where’s the Beef?” (admit it, you remember those Wendy’s fast food commercials), this list of burger recipes is going to blow your mind when you see just how fun and fancy a burger can be!
