Article Image

No cookout is complete without juicy burgers. We’re sharing some favorites that’ll have your neighbors angling for an invite. You’ll also find meatless burgers and burgers you can make when the weather throws a wrench in your plans.

  • Recipe

    Herbed Aïoli Burgers

    These burgers get a double whammy of herb flavor: Finely chopped herbs are mixed into the beef, then the burgers are topped with an herbed mayonnaise that’s so good it can be served on its own as a dip for french fries or chips.
  • Recipe

    Turkey-Chorizo Burgers with Guacamole

    These turkey burgers with a twist feature fresh, Mexican-style pork chorizo and a guacamole kicked up with a few dashes of hot sauce.
  • Recipe

    The BLT Burger

    This ultimate burger gets its amazing flavor from the combination of smoky bacon and a sweet-and-spicy ketchup with caramelized onions and Southwestern spices.
  • Recipe

    Quinoa and Black Bean Burgers with Tomatillo Guacamole

    Quinoa gives these veggie burgers a fantastic “chew,” and of course packs plenty of protein.
  • Recipe

    Bacon-Wrapped Turkey Burgers

    Ground turkey breast is super-lean so it partners well with fattier foods. In this burger, smoky bacon adds incredible flavor, as does the creamy blue cheese sauce.
  • Recipe

    Caramelized Onion Cheeseburgers

    Elevate the common burger by adding tender sweet onions, melted cheese, and tangy lemon-Dijon mayonnaise.
  • Recipe

    Jucy Lucy Turkey Burgers

    This burger—two patties surrounding a molten cheese core—was inspired by the specialty at Matt’s Bar in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The creamy, tangy avocado spread is terrific on all kinds of burgers and can be made ahead.
  • Recipe

    Banh Mi Burger

    Here, you’ll find a sweet and savory Vietnamese street-food favorite in burger form. Substitute half of the carrots with daikon radish for an even more authentic flavor.
  • Recipe

    Lamb and Goat Cheese Burgers with Roasted Red Pepper Relish

    There’s a double dose of fresh goat cheese here—as little pockets of flavor inside the burgers and as a creamy spread on the buns. The egg and breadcrumbs in the burgers help keep them moist.
  • Recipe

    Fresh Tuna Burgers with Ginger & Cilantro

    You'll want to cook these burgers on the stovetop so you have better heat control and can ensure that they stay a nice, moist medium rare inside.
  • Recipe

    Beef Burgers with Blue Cheese & Caramelized Onions

    Salty blue cheese, sweet onions, and juicy beef are a classic and addictive combination. Cooking the onions is the most time-consuming part of this recipe, but it’s worth it to coax out their deep, earthy flavor.  
  • Recipe

    Grilled Lamb Burgers with Marinated Red Onions, Dill, and Feta

    Tired of basic burgers? Here, quick-pickled red onions add dimension to this Mediterranean-inspired burger and are a great addition to the cucumber, tomato, and feta.
  • Recipe

    Bacon Burgers with Bacon-Onion-Balsamic Jam

    We all know bacon on a burger is great; this recipe goes a step further and put the bacon in the burger. As if that's not bacon-y enough, the burgers are topped with a savory-sweet bacon-onion jam.
  • Recipe

    Mexican Black Bean Burgers

    Finely chopped poblanos and pure ancho chile powder give these burgers their heat. They have a fragile texture, so skip the grill and sauté them instead.
  • Recipe

    Thai Curry Turkey Burgers

    Give the Thai food lovers at the cookout a burger they can get excited about. Here, aromatic Thai curry paste mixed into the meat gives these turkey burgers a flavorful kick.
  • Recipe

    Grilled Sliders

    The fun thing about mini burgers is that if you eat three of them (about equivalent to one regular burger) you can have three different condiments, cheeses, and add-ons.
  • Recipe

    Roasted Portabella & Garlic Burger

    Consider this burger the perfect Plan B: It's roasted, so cooked indoors, and they're a great meatless option for vegetarians.
  • Recipe

    Bison Burgers with Thousand Island Barbecue Dressing

    Bison (yes, that's buffalo meat) is a great substitute for beef—it's just as flavorful but much leaner.
  • Recipe

    White Bean Burgers with Tomato-Olive Relish

    This veggie burger is a lively combination of classic Italian flavors. It’s just as good served without the bun.
  • Recipe

    Middle Eastern Turkey Burgers

    This burger gets a Middle Eastern twist from the addition of garlic, cumin, coriander, and fresh mint and parsley folded into the ground turkey.
  • Recipe

    Salmon Burgers with Dill Tartar Sauce

    Grab your nonstick skillet for these fresh and savory burgers. Here, salmon is punched up with shallots, capers, and mustard.
  • Recipe

    Stuffed Blue Cheese Burgers

    Who says a cookout can't be sophisticated? The humble cheeseburger becomes an elegant entrée in this inspired interpretation.
  • Recipe

    Grilled Chickpea Burgers with Creamy Lemon Tahini Sauce

    Chickpeas, tahini, garlic, and lemon come together here in creamy, hearty bean burgers that taste like a cross between hummus and falafel.
