The Memorial Day Burger Recipe You've Been Looking for Is Here!

cheeseburgerGet 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.


1. Bacon Cheeseburger

The name says it all: Yum. The recipe calls for blue cheese, but you can use cheddar or any flavor that you like.

2. All-American Burger

Perfect in its simplicity, this is a burger for anyone and everyone. It calls for what else but ... American cheese.

3. Double Chili Cheeseburger With Grilled Onions

Not for the weak, this is one serious burger that packs in a ton of flavor.

4. Triple Smoke Burgers

Beyond the smoky taste the grill lends, these burgers get a kick from some peppers, smoked paprika, and bacon to boot.

5. Cheddar Jalapeno Chicken Burgers With Guacamole

Burgers don't have to be beef. These chicken burgers and spicy and full of flavor.

6. Pimento Cheese-Stuffed Burgers

Biting into one of these, with the tangy cheese and pimento center, is pure burger bliss.

7. Spaghetti Burgers

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.

9. Bacon-Wrapped Burger With Fried Pickles and Slaw

So. Much. Goodness.

10. Portobello Mushroom Burger

Great for vegetarians and carnivores alike. The mushroom is so tender and flavorful, you'll forget it's a vegetable.
