Get your grills ready, Monday is Memorial Day. I probably feel this way every year, but it seems particularly unbelievable this year that it's here already. At least we have the promise of delicious food to ease the harsh reality of the year flying by, and there's nothing more promising when it comes to Memorial Day food than burgers.
All burgers aren't equal, however. Sure, you can just toss them on the grill with a little salt and pepper and they'll be good, but there are so many other ways to make them even better. Here are 10 burger recipes that kick things up and will make your Memorial Day burgers the most memorable.
The name says it all: Yum. The recipe calls for blue cheese, but you can use cheddar or any flavor that you like.
Perfect in its simplicity, this is a burger for anyone and everyone. It calls for what else but ... American cheese.
Not for the weak, this is one serious burger that packs in a ton of flavor.
Beyond the smoky taste the grill lends, these burgers get a kick from some peppers, smoked paprika, and bacon to boot.
Burgers don't have to be beef. These chicken burgers and spicy and full of flavor.
Biting into one of these, with the tangy cheese and pimento center, is pure burger bliss.
You've heard of spaghetti tacos, so why not spaghetti burgers? (Hint: The noodles make up the "fries".)
8. Cajun Burger
From master chef Bobby Flay, this burger sings with flavor. Topped with spicy pepper jack cheese, ham, and hot sauce, it's one smokin' burger.
So. Much. Goodness.
Great for vegetarians and carnivores alike. The mushroom is so tender and flavorful, you'll forget it's a vegetable.
