Keep reading to see a few of our favorite ideas!
Burgers That Are Anything But Ordinary
Gyros and burgers go hand in hand, because when you really think about it, isn’t a gyro already a cousin to the burger? This recipe from KitchMe is perfect for anyone who is looking for a way to bridge the gap. Trust us that it’s just as delicious as it sounds. The recipe above is for the burger patties only, so our suggestion is to grab a pita or some flatbread to use as a bun and serve it up with some lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and tzatziki sauce (which you may be able to find at your local grocery store, but if not then you can find plenty of easy-to-follow recipes online).
The end result is a true thing of beauty and a burger that’s sure to find its way into your list of weekly meals.
This recipe for Aloha Burgers with Island Jerk Pineapple from Half Baked Harvest is a guaranteed game changer. Pineapple and burgers go hand in hand and when they’re done just right there’s nothing quite like it. What makes it so special, you ask. Well “let’s put it this way, it gets soaked in coconut rum, brown sugar and jerk spices.”
If that sounds amazing it’s because it is! The recipe includes everything you need to know to make island jerk pineapple, teriyaki sauce, and burgers. It’s sweet, salty, spicy, and just downright delicious, making it worthy of being a highlight at your next cookout or just a little something different for a Wednesday night.
We know what you’re thinking, and no, a ranch burger isn’t just a normal burger with ranch dressing on top, although it is almost that easy. It comes from the team at KitchMe and it takes only five ingredients to make these burgers which are sure to please.
All it takes is ground beef, ranch salad dressing mix, a single egg, saltine crackers, and a chopped onion. The end result is awesome and our recommendation is to top it with a slice of swiss cheese. This burger is really and truly as good as it gets and its unique twist is just enough to keep the whole family happy thanks to its outside of the box approach.
Thai Peanut Butter and Bacon Burger
If you’ve followed along with our blog for any amount of time then you’ve seen us sing the praises of peanut butter on a burger in the past, but this one takes it a step further into something truly incredible. Yes, the three best things in the world come together perfectly into this Thai Peanut Butter and Bacon Burger from the folks at The Noshery.
Here’s what they have to say:
“This burger will blow your socks off, I promise! It has an eye rolling combination of sweet, spice and nuttiness. Not to mention the crispy bacon. Do you see that peanut butter oozing out and basting the patty? I know you are thinking: I have lost my mind and you [are] right! I have lost my mind over the AWESOMENESS of this burger!”
We couldn’t agree more!
Frito Chili Cheeseburger
You’ve probably had a chili dog in the past, but a chili burger? That’s a bit more of a rarity. Thankfully Just a Pinch Recipes has you covered with their Frito Chili Cheeseburger recipe!
It’s pretty simple, admittedly, and all you have to do is top a normal burger with your favorite chili, some corn chips, and cheese. Their recipe calls for velveeta, but we had good luck with a slice of sharp cheddar over the top. At the end of the day, it’s hard to beat the hearty goodness of a frito chili cheeseburger. It’s also the ideal choice to keep in mind as the weather starts to cool down because is there anything that goes together as well as chilliness and chili?
