Burgers are on the menu for dinner tonight but I’m looking to spice them up a bit. I always make them the same way, little bit of olive oil, garlic powder and italian seasoning mixed with the ground beef. While they’re really good and super juicy, I’m kind of bored with it. Any ideas for different burger recipes?

My Fi makes turkey burgers with minced garlic, salt, pepper, and a little Worcestershire.
SOOOO good. I’m sure beef burgers would be good like that too.
You could also stuff them with something like spinach and feta cheese, or blue cheese.

blue cheese or cheddar in the burgers is always good

Have you tried grass fed beef? I love the flavor of it.

Add a packet of dry ranch dressing (hidden valley makes it I think). Or you could go Asian and do soy sauce/teriyaki & for bonus points cook them in a wok. But I think one of my favorite burger things is with bbq sauce, cheddar, bacon, & pineapples.

You could do Bison meat as well. It’s the lowest fat meat and delicious.

Here’s one I made up one night. I call it Spicy Explosion. lol I got a jalapeno and chopped it up and them molded it together with shredded monterey jack cheese to form a ball. Then I formed the burger patty around the jalapeno cheese ball so that the ball would cook inside the meat. I probably seasoned the meat w/ worscheshire sauce, garlic salt, pepper, etc. For the toppings, I put green chilis, bacon, lettuce, tomato, avacado, and a slice of spicy pepperjack cheese. Everyone seemed to love it.

I make turkey burgers with chopped up spinach, mushrooms, and onions, seasonings, worcestshire sauce, and anything else I want to throw in. The mushrooms help keep them really moist.

We’ve been doing what I like to call a “fiesta burger”. I use a bunch of taco spices in the meat – like chili powder, cayanne, garlic. Then we grill them and top with pepper jack cheese and guacamole. It’s really good.

A little harissa paste in the meat gives them a bit of an exotic flair.

This sounds weird but got it from an ex’s mom years ago:
One pouch Lipton’s onion soup/dip mix (I don’t usually use the whole thing…maybe 3/4) for about 2lbs of beef. (Also I second the grass-fed beef suggestion. Soo good), plus some A1 sauce and a bit of Worcestershire sauce. Not an exact recipe but I love it. Use more or less of the package depending on your tastes. I usually add enough A1 to generously cover the top of the meat in the bowl before I mix everything.

This is our fave burger recipe. It’s healthy and delish, and the feta aioli is really good on pretty much anything.

FH likes stuffed burgers.
Make two thin patties and stuff it with a mixture of light cream cheese, roasted red pepper and ranch seasoning. crimp the edges of the two patties to make one burger
I like to add Worcestershire to the meat itself.
You can stuff with any flavor combination mixed with the cream cheese.

i just made these last night.
2 lbs of beef (I used 93/7)
2 Tbsp fajita seasoning
1/4 C steak sauce
mix until combined (use your hands, much easier)
Divide meat into 4 equal pieces, then divide each piece into two. Form a patty with one, fill with sauteed mushrooms and pepperjack cheese; cover with another patty, seal edges. Continue until you have 4 burgers. This recipe makes LARGE burgers, so feel free to cut in half. I broiled in the oves (since it’s like 10 degrees around here) for 5 minutes on each side. Sooo juicy and flavorful.
