    Spicy Mexican Burger

    This burger by Joe Isidori from Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer is so flavorful you almost don’t need any toppings, but the pepper jack cheese, chipotle mayo, lettuce, pickles, and tomato take it right over the top.

    Salmon Godzilla Burger

    This burger is so named for its towering appearance: a scallion-and-soy-spiked salmon patty topped with shiitake mushrooms, tempura crispies, lettuce, and smoky mayo. Troy Guard of Denver's TAG Burger Bar and the TAG Restaurant Group recommends making extra crispy topping; it’s a tasty snack on its own.
  • Tofu Sweet Potato Burger

    Buddha Karma Burger

    Here’s an inventive take on a veggie burger from Chicago Diner’s Jose Martinez. The sweet potato and tofu patty is seasoned deliciously with curry and topped with chimichurri.
  • Ham Burger
    Recipe

    “Ham” Burger with Onions and Gruyère

    Chris Cosentino, chef-owner of San Francisco’s Cockscomb, has come up with an ingenious idea: a real ham burger. Brining the pork for up to two days makes this burger spectacular; if you’re lucky, you’ll have leftover ham (excellent for meatballs or dumplings).

    Jucy Lucy Turkey Burgers

    This burger—two patties surrounding  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 (thanks to the lime juice and vinegar, it won’t readily discolor).
