Favorite "burger" recipes? Turkey? Bean? Salmon? Veggie? Lamb?

I love having ready-made burgers in the freezer for easy weeknight dinners, but am getting bored of my standard turkey burger recipe.

Anyone have anything they love that's not just a standard beef burger?

    My wife used to do lula kebabs on the grill but she has a short attention span and started forming the mixture into burgers rather than smaller ovals. No reason that wouldn't apply to any ground-meat kebab recipe. The lula is 1/2 beef, 1/2 lamb with chopped onion, parsley, cumin, turmeric, pepper, salt. We never make it the same way twice. It's fantastic with sauteed onions and peppers.

      Made a pork & chorizo the other day. That was pretty good.

      Lamb is also a favourite - although I never know if I should be calling them burgers, rissoles, koftas or what.

        These pork burgers from Sunday Suppers at Lucques are out of this world.


        That cole slaw recipe is damn good, too.

            Chow does, of course!

            The last "burger" I had was one where I took some pulled pork, mixed it with some spices, panko, collards hot sauce, and fried it. It was actually passable, but not something I'd make unless I had more pork than I know what to do with again.

            My favorite is where I stuff the burger with sausage, top it with mozzarella, basil and tomatoes, and serve it between sourdough buns for a pizza-burger.
