What's your best...Burger?

Okay all, summer is almost upon us and for a lot of folks that means burgers on the grill.

So how about a burger challenge?

Beef, turkey, veggie, whatever you like...What's YOUR best burger?

Got a TNT (Tried N True) you'd like to share?

Or maybe you're feeling creative and want to try something new.

The rules are simple:

1. It must be a burger (pattie) served on a bun, and preferably cooked on the grill but not necessary (don't want to exclude those that cook indoors or don't have a grill).

2. Include the recipe, any instructions, and all toppings and condiments you use or make.

3. A picture would be great if you can (but not required).


All entries should be posted by Sunday June 5th.

I will set up a separate thread for the entries with the posting instrucions. Look for it sometime Monday evening.


Anyone interested??

This one I can probably afford to do (I'm paying off a huge legal bill the end of June related to a business partnership gone bad...it has put me in a bad financial place since 2007--it's been H*LL--but I've learned a lot about things I don't need, how to live simple, and how to still eat well <g>.).
But, I'm ALMOST free!!!! Is it just the burger or do we have to do 3-courses?

for beef, here"s my latest creation. tnt since i've made them several times and my family loved them each time.

it's a juicy lucy (a stuffed burger) using boursin cheese.

you take a roughly 4 ounce 80/20 ground angus chuck patty, top it with a good lump of garlic and herb boursin, then put a second 4 oz. patty on top and seal the edges well. grill until cooked medium and the chesse becomes gooey inside.
serve on a whole wheat soft bun with tomato, lettuce, red onion, and ketchup. side o' steak fries.

i think i have a pic that i will post later.

My best is what I call an "Asian" Burger.
I make the patty with ground beef, salt, pepper, garlic powder, cajun seasoning, soy sauce and green onions.
It gets topped with swiss cheese, caramelized onions and mushrooms.
After the onions are caramelized I add the mushrooms and homemade teriyaki sauce, sesame seeds and garlic, simmer until the mushrooms are done.
Teriyaki sauce: 2 Tbsp sake, 2 Tbsp soy sauce, 2 Tbsp sugar, 1 Tbsp mirin.

very nice, ppt! love those carmelized onions and mushrooms. and i'm going to have to try adding the asian ingredients. are those sweet potato fries?

i thought i had a picture of my grilled boursin juicy lucys, but i only have an old one of a burger with garlic and herb boursin cheese, lettuce, onion, and tomato on a whole wheat roll with baked steak fries:



and here's an american cheese juicy lucy, medium rare, naked on a whole wheat roll with baked steak fries. i squeezed it a bit for effect so you get the idea:



(yeah, i know you're not supposed to eat rare ground beef, yada yada. i'm still here and have never suffered the slightest ill effects from it after many, many times...)

A fine example of a burger Tom mate,I had a girlfriend once called Lucy Lastic.
The famous and original Burger, my lords, ladies, gentelmen and Tom I give you the Feta Stuffed Pljeskavica.
Coarse Mince a to make a 1/3 of each, Lean Beef, Veal and fatty Belly Pork.
Mix with a little Sally salt and a lot of Percy pepper, put half a measure in your burger press add the feta mixed with chopped onion, top with the meat mix and press. Toast your buns smear with fiery ajvar.
