Anyone have some really good burger recipes? Looking for something different to do this weekend.

Form your patties super thin (i.e. half as "puffy" as you usually would form them).
On one of the patties, place some bleu cheese in the center and toward the edges.
Place the second super thin patty on top of that and pinch the edges so that it's back to being one puffy burger.
Cook as you usually would and the cheese inside will be all melty and yummy.

The last time I made these, I steamed the burgers. It's a Connecticut thing and, though I lived there and had them there, I never did it myself. So easy and so delicious.

The devil's in the details.

Fresh ground chuck (burgers should be 80/20) seasoned with salt and pepper to taste and not cooked to hockey puck status as so many I've eaten have been!

Toasted buns
Chopped sweet onion and dill pickle
Juicy Burger patty
Freshly leafed lettuce
Thousand Island/mustard/mayo - whatever you like

My version of a Juicy Lucy:

2 pounds 80/20 ground beef
1 Tbsp.onion powder
1 Tbsp. Garlic powder
1/2 Tsp. black pepper
1 packet beef bullion
1 brick of cheddar or Swiss cut into small cubes- Use 2-3 cubes per burger.
Mix altogether and form each burger into a ball about the size of 2 golf balls. Make a well or whole in the middle and stuff the burger with what ever cheese you like, I prefer cheddar or Swiss. Fold the meat back over and press each ball the flat of your hand in between two pices of waxed paper. Now you are ready to pan fry or grill them.

Years ago as I was making meat balls for my red sauce I had some left over and threw
them on the grill...Yummy and something you don't find often as they are uniquely different

lubby,

Thanks for the flashback memory

I had my first Jucy Lucy at Matt's when I was 4 years old

I'm not a vegetarian, not by a long shot, but my favorite hamburger patties are the MorningStar Farms® Grillers®. I pile those up with all the usual burger fixings and I'm happy as a clam.

Have you tried Backyard Grill’n Burgers from Lightlife? These can pass as beef in a blind taste test!

I'll have to look for those. I actually like the taste of the veggie burgers I buy. I think it's the flavor of the soy protein I like (now come the links to the dangers of TVP ).

Edit: Yep - looked-up those burgers, I'm quite sure I would like them. However, it seems they are difficult to find.

Bacon bits. Either make them or use the ones that come in a bag t Costco (real bacon). With your hands, mix them right into the ground beef, form the patties then let chill a bit in the fridge so they firm back up before cooking. An easier wy is to form really thin patties, put the bacon bits on one and another on top, and press hard together, sealing the edges. Bacon burgers are good already, but this way the bacon flavor goes right through.
