best burger ideas
Interested in finding new ways to make a tasty burger. What do you put in yours? What about toppings?
to turkey burgers i have added some shredded jack cheese and salsa, just blending it all in and then making patties. probably would work nice with beef, too. pretty much any tasty-sounding combo would probably work:
black olives and feta
onions and cheese (maybe blue?)
this morning, on the today show, there was a martha stewart segment on burgers, with some interesting twists: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/3104201/ (check out the video link at the top right
Usually, I mix a little pureed chipotle in adobo into the meat, then top with cheddar cheese and avocado and serve on toasted buns. A few weeks ago when I made these with really lean beef, I mixed in some minced leftover grilled portabella. It added a great dimension to the smoky chipotle flavors and helped add moisture to the meat.
When I'm tired of the chipotle mix, sometimes I add a bit of pork sausage, homemade pesto, roasted garlic puree or caramelized onion to the meat.
I top my homemade burgers with 2 yr old white cheddar and tomato jam that I make.
A simple yet delicious combo.
