Posted: May 10, 2022 12:48 pm

There are few dishes more iconic to America than the hamburger. Everyone has their favorite national chain with regional roots or ways to enjoy burgers—packed with sauce, double, lettuce-wrapped or something else.

Add in fries and a soda or a milkshake and that is one delicious meal! To pay homage to the hamburger, May is National Hamburger Month. But, for the purposes of this article, we are taking things one step further and giving you some burger recipes. Check out 10+ ideas below and grab condiments and plenty of paper napkins!

Recipe #1: Best Hamburger Patty Recipe

Made on the grill or stove top, these hamburgers are easy to make. Juicy and delicious, you will need ground chuck, crushed crackers or bread crumbs, Worcestershire sauce, egg, milk and a seasoning blend of onion, salt, garlic powder and pepper. Cook until light brown and drain the excess fat. Top with ketchup, mustard, onions and relish.

Recipe #2: Zuni Café’s Hamburger

Zuni’s Café, located in San Francisco, is known for its grass-fed beef burgers. Served on a toasted rosemary focaccia slice, aioli and handmade pickles round out the dish. We urge you to take similar inspiration here for a delicious dish. Add in chips and pickles and that is a dish that is just as good as what one could find in a restaurant.

Recipe #3: Lola Burgers

Part hamburger, part breakfast sandwich, ground beef is combined with English muffins, eggs and cocktail onions in this mashup. Serve with ketchup, mustard and relish. This is great for brunch, too.

Recipe #4: Backyard California Burgers

Melted cheese, avocado, lettuce and garlic elevate these burgers and give them a California twist. Consider serving them with large pieces of romaine and enjoy with French fries, chips, or in true West Coast style, plenty of veggies.

Recipe #5: Best Turkey Burgers

For a slightly healthier burger than hamburgers, try turkey burgers! Bread crumbs, diced onion, egg whites, chopped parsley, salt and a clove of garlic make these flavorful and juicy. Patties can be frozen and cooked as desired, too. Pretty good!

Recipe #6: Smashed Chicken Burgers with Cheddar and Parsley

Smashed burgers have been all the rage in the late 2010s. Ground chicken, Dijon mustard, olive oil, red pepper flakes and more make the patties, which are taken up a notch thanks to cheddar and parsley. Yes, these are not the cleanest burgers to eat, but they are tasty and flavorful!

Recipe #7: Ground Pork Burgers

Juicy and salty, these burgers are made with ground pork. Siracha, olive oil, ketchup and egg make them a must-try for those who like their burgers on the spicier side. Serve on buttery brioche rolls.

Recipe #8: Classic Cheeseburger with Secret Sauce

From the soft bun to the juicy meat that has been perfectly seasoned to the cheese, onions and savory secret sauce, this burger is a classic and kid-friendly. Make sure you have plenty of wipes and paper napkins when you serve these—it might be better to enjoy them with a knife and fork, too!

Recipe #9: Duck Burgers

Looking for a different type of burger recipe? Ground duck, soy sauce, maple syrup, sea salt and plenty of pickles will give eaters a savory-sweet blend of flavors. Serve with an Asian slaw on bao or sesame seed buns.

Recipe #10: Best Veggie Burger Recipe

These hearty, grill-worthy burgers have a meaty texture. Tamari, balsamic vinegar and mirin help bring out the savory flavors. Spices add flavor and flax seed, bread crumbs and rice act as binders. While this may sound like a hodgepodge of ingredients, these burgers are worth a try. Who knows? You may think they are better than store bought.

Recipe #11: The Best Vegan Beet Burgers

If you like the Beet Burgers you can get from the store, but not the additives, try making them yourself! Top with a creamy sauce and serve on egg-free rolls. Good for the planet, and your stomach!
