Popular Burgers Recipes

The first hamburger showed up on New York menu in 1826, and the classic burger - a thick, juicy beef patty surrounded by a fluffy white bun -- has been an enduring American favorite ever since. The basic burger recipe is simple: Work the meat (at least 15 percent fat) as little as possible, use plenty of salt to season, and cook on a very hot surface to achieve that dark, caramelized crust we all crave (a grill is ideal for this). Making a turkey burger, a veggie burger? Follow the same principles. Toppings are up to you, of course, though it's hard to beat the classic combo of sweet, tangy ketchup and old-fashioned yellow mustard.

Turkey-Mushroom Burgers

Ground turkey is the standard lean alternative to ground beef - and a good one - but burgers made from it can be dry and bland. These turkey burgers are particularly moist and flavorful because mushrooms are used to extend the ground meat.

Blueberry-Beef Burgers

Whatever the season, burgers remain America's favorite sandwich. When it is too cold to grill outdoors, broil the patties or use an indoor grill. In addition to the standard fixings--ketchup, salsa, onions and tomatoes--make your burgers more nutritious by adding dark greens, such as watercress or spinach.

Wasabi Salmon Burgers

Bring out the flavors of salmon with a Japanese-inspired infusion of ginger, sesame oil and wasabi. If you serve these patties on whole-wheat buns, consider reduced-fat mayonnaise and sliced cucumbers as condiments. Or skip the buns and set the patties atop a vinegary salad of greens, carrots, radishes and sprouts.

Inside-Out Cheeseburgers

Why put the cheese on top of the burger when half of it just melts off--Instead, form the burger around the cheese so you can char the meat and safeguard the more delicate flavors. Use any mixture of hard or semihard cheeses-Emmentaler and Gouda or Asiago and Parmigiano-Reggiano also pair well.

Cranberry & Herb Turkey Burgers

Our usual problem with turkey burgers is the dry, chewy texture of the cooked meat. The usual solution is to add fat, but a little sauteed onion, dried cranberries and soaked couscous work even better without larding down this healthy main course. With sage and thyme, call it a summery answer to Thanksgiving dinner. If you like, serve with homemade Blueberry Ketchup.

Crab Cake Burgers

These burgers have a true crab flavor that isn't masked by fillers or strong seasoning. Serve on a bun with tartar sauce or with a lemon-juice-dressed salad of greens, sprouts and sliced peaches. This recipe works best with convenient pasteurized crabmeat, usually found in the refrigerated case near the fish counter. If you prefer lump crabmeat, cut it into small, uniform pieces.

Salmon Burgers with Green Goddess Sauce

The key to perfect salmon burgers is to handle the fish delicately: don't overseason, overhandle or overcook it. Cutting the salmon into small pieces by hand takes a little while, but you want it in tender little bits. Serve over a bed of salad greens with the Green Goddess Sauce dolloped on top or as a traditional burger using the sauce as a spread for the bun.
