Build a better burger: Part II

I was trying to find a good burger thread, which I did here:
discusscooking.com/forums/f36/better-burger-23355.html

So I tried to bump it to see if there were any new ideas, and it turns out I can't because the thread is over a year old. So I figured I'd make a new thread, and see what everyone does to spice up their burgers.


Edit: just noticed I put this in the grill section, if a MOD wanted to move it into the general outdoor forum I wouldn't oppose.

I've been doing Italian burgers on the grill this summer, a mix of hamburger and Italian sausage, parmesan, grated onion, oregano, garlic... top it with either pizza sauce or a reduced tomato sort of catsup but with Italian seasonings. I use provolone for a cheeseburger.

I normally use a dash of garlic powder, a dash of onion powder and a splash of Louisiana Hot Sauce for just a hint of heat (I prefer it over Tabasco), and sometimes a splash of BBQ sauce to my meat mixture. The BBQ sauce really gives it a sweet (but not too sweet) and smoky flavor before it even hits the grill! This most likely isn't original, but it's darn good!

I usually mince some bacon in a food proccessor and add it to my ground beef. The fat renders into the meat w hile it cooks so they are so juicy, and get that smoky bacon flavour we all love.

I love a big juicy hamburger topped with fresh mozzarella, a roasted red pepper and some mustard
