Favorite burgers and toppings?

Hubby made some great burgers last night. I have to admit I was a bit skeptical, but I'm craving another one today! He chopped up some pitted calamata olives and roasted red pepper and added it to 80/20 ground beef. For the topping, aside from the cheese, I baked some vidalias (cut them like a bloomin' onion) and put a pat of butter, some Season All and brown sugar on top. I covered the pan in foil and let it bake for many hours. Any one else have any favorites?

  1. pepper jelly and mont jack cheese

    smoked paprika in the burger is a fave, good w/ garlic, parsley, worcestershire mixed in as well

    topped w/ avocado

    1. We're trying ground buffalo today for our Memorial Day burgers...never had it before .. someone suggested mixing it with garlic and worcestershire sauce, then grilling it, so that's what I'll do.

        We LOVE buffalo burgers! We dont eat anything else anymore. We grilled some today with a bit of Montreal Steak Seasoning. I added sharp cheddar cheese, sauteed cremini mushrooms and homemade horseradish mayo on a toasted bun. I hope you enjoyed your buffalo burgers as well. Not only is the flavor unmatched but the buffalo is better for you than regular ground chuck.

          Yep, they were really glad I tried buffalo...kind of expensive at $7.00 per pound BUT I don't eat 'red' meats that often and for that money, at least you know you aren't eating an animal that has eaten other animals in their feed <feeling queasy>. Will try adding the Montreal Steak seasoning next time which will probably be 4th of July.

      2. Blue-cheese stuffed burgers with grilled onions and sauteed mushrooms.

        1. Thes Cranberry Turkey Burgers are fantastic! Rave reviews and recipe requests by many!

          1. minced rabbit and sage, with swiss cheese, fresh tomato and Dijon-aise.
