My favorite thing for a "special burger" is Bleu cheese and sliced green olives.

It tastes nothing like you expect. The bleu cheese is creamy and nice, the green olives mellow out a bit and provide a nice edge.

I'm an old school, classic American style burger lover, but I've found adding some seasoning to the meat before forming burgers can be good. I've used a bit of garlic powder and a season salt blend by a local butchery, but I'm sure you could experiment with dang near anything. Add some cumin, chili powder and paprika for a southwestern flavor (topped with your favorite salsa perhaps). Or, maybe combine different meats as well.

Asparagus

If you're grilling & can get thick Asparagus spears, lightly drizzle w/ EVO and grill them. Great substitute for fries/other usual suspects.

My Fav burger is with pesto topping, fresh sliced mozz cheese, and fresh basil leaves, with a side of garlic parmesan fries

I also love sweet potatoe fries with my burgers

Wonder what she decided on.

I always wonder which idea a poster goes with, when they get a bunch of replies.
