Nothing is more suitable for Memorial Day than a cookout with friends and family. If you're planning to whip up some grub for everyone, hamburgers are a surefire crowd-pleaser. Here are a few simple burger recipes that will wow everyone, no matter how much of a grill master you may be.
Spicy Southwestern-Style Burgers
These burgers are my go-to for those who enjoy a little extra spice and flavor in their patties. Plus, the recipe calls for turkey instead of ground beef, so it's a little bit better for your heart. Top the patty with a slice of pepper jack cheese and some avocado for a meal that tastes as good as any gourmet burger shop fare.
Philly Cheesesteak Burgers
Picture the traditional Philly Cheesesteak flavor you love, then add a load of yummy toppings like bell peppers and a cheesy sauce. Just cook the vegetables, make the cheese sauce, then load everything onto the patty for a smooth, delicious meal. Follow these steps and you'll have no trouble serving up a few of these burgers.
Hawaiian Crush Burgers
Summer is here, so why not break out some pineapple and give your food a little tropical flair? This recipe will help you create a burger that takes the flavor of Hawaiian pizza and mixes in some traditional burger elements. Juicy and flavorful, these hamburgers will satisfy your sweet and savory cravings.
Chipotle Ranch Burgers
This grilled burger certainly packs a kick, and you'll love the chipotle flavor mixed with traditional toppings and lean ground beef. Top the patties with lettuce, bacon, cheese, and plenty of the ranch sauce so that you don't miss an ounce of flavor. If you really want to take things to the next level, use Ciabatta buns instead of the usual hamburger buns you buy.
Jalapeno Bacon Cheddar Burgers
We Texans love our spicy food, so why not toss a few jalapenos on your burgers this Memorial Day? This recipe will show you how to really up the spice level in your burger by adding a tangy barbecue sauce on top of the jalapeno peppers. Perfect for a summer cookout, these burgers are sure to please every lover of spicy food.
