If new and delicious burger recipes make your heart happy, you’ve come to the right place. Burgers are perfect for a warm summer night in the backyard, but that doesn’t mean you can’t also cook them anytime the mood strikes. If you’re tired of the same, old boring patty, you have to check out these burger recipes. You’re going to love each and every one just as much as I do.
1. Terrific Teriyaki Burgers
There’s nothing better than an ethnic flair in burger recipes. This one is perfect! It combines a juicy patty with the tastiness of pineapple and other flavors you can’t get enough. Try this one – you won’t be sorry.
¼ cup ketchup
2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon unsweetened crushed pineapple
1 ½ teaspoons minced fresh ginger
1 garlic clove minced
½ teaspoon sesame oil
1 egg white, lightly beaten
1/3 cup dry bread crumbs
3 green onions, chopped
2 tablespoons unsweetened crushed pineapple
¾ pound ground beef
¾ lean ground turkey
6 slices unsweetened pineapple
6 hamburger buns, split and toasted
6 lettuce leaves
6 slices tomato
Combine the ketchup, soy sauce, brown sugar, pineapple, ginger, garlic and sesame oil in a small bowl and set aside. In another bowl, mix together the egg white, breadcrumbs, onions, crushed pineapple and 3 tablespoons of the ketchup mixture. Add the beef and turkey and mix well. Form 6 patties. Oil the grill rack and heat it to medium. Grill the burgers, covered, for 5 to 7 minutes on each side, brushing now and then with the reserved ketchup mixture. Grill the pineapple slices for 2 to 3 minutes per side. Serve the burgers on the buns, topped with pineapple, lettuce and tomato.

Talk about a deluxe burger. It’s smothered with loads of delicious toppings and will have you feeling like you’re Down Under in no time. You’ll be everyone’s hero when you serve this burger.
¼ cup ketchup
¼ cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Asian chili paste

Preheat the grill to medium-high. In a small bowl, stir together the ketchup, mayonnaise and chili paste. In another bowl, combine the beef with 1 teaspoon salt and a ½ teaspoon pepper. Form the meat into 4 patties. Lightly toast the rolls on the grill rack. Pat the pineapple dry, then lightly brush with ½ tablespoon of oil. Oil the grill racks, then cook the pineapple and burgers until cooked. This will take about 4 minutes for medium-rare burgers. Fry the eggs in the remaining oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Spread the mayonnaise mixture on the buns. Pile each with a burger, an egg, a slice of pineapple and beets.
4. Cheddar and Onion Smashed Burgers
I think onions are the perfect accompaniment for a grilled burger and this recipe doesn’t disappoint. The cheddar adds just a touch of saltiness and the pickles lend a satisfying crunch. You’ll love this one so much it will be hard to eat just one.
16 thin bread and butter pickle slices, patted dry
4 potato buns, buttered and toasted
1 ¼ pounds ground beef chuck
Salt and pepper
2 small onions, sliced paper thin
4 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, sliced
Heat a cast-iron griddle over high heat until very hot. Place the pickles on the bottom buns. Form the meat into 4 balls and cook them on the griddle for about 30 seconds. Flatten each ball into a patty and season to taste with salt and pepper. Sear the patties for about 2 minutes, then press a handful of onions into each. Flip the burgers, top with cheese and cook for an additional 2 minutes. Cover and cook 1 more minute. Serve the burgers on the buns.
