Creative and Appetizing Burger Recipes


									Sometimes nothing hits the spot better than a nice, juicy burger! The good news is
that you don't have to dine out to experience a new and creative burger. This article
has several great burger recipes, each one offering a delicious twist that will not only
surprise your taste buds, but will cost you a fraction of the price of dining out! I hope
you enjoy these recipes as much as I do!

Pub-Style Burger

2 lbs of ground beef sirloin
4 large burger buns or rolls of your choice
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
3/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup chives (chopped)
1/4 cup applesauce (unsweetened)
1/4 cup horseradish
1/4 cup parsley (finely chopped)
1 tbsp olive oil
1 bunch of watercress
Salt and pepper

Mix together the applesauce, sour cream, horseradish, breadcrumbs, pepper, and
chives. Cover with lid or plastic wrap and refrigerate. In a large bowl, blend together
the beef, parsley, and Worcestershire sauce. Salt and pepper to your own taste. Shape
the beef into four decent-sized patties. Coat each one in olive oil and cook in a skillet
until it reaches your desired doneness. When assembling the burger, place a bit of
watercress and horseradish mixture on top of the patty, then top with bun.

Tasty Turkey Burger

2 lbs ground turkey
4 burger buns or rolls of your choice
Salt and pepper
2 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup chicken stock
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 shallot (finely chopped)
2 cloves garlic (finely chopped)
2 sprigs of thyme (chopped)
2 tbsp capers (chopped)
In a large bowl, mix together the ground turkey with salt and pepper. When the salt
and pepper have been well blended into the meat, divide it into four even sections.
Shape each section into a patty. Pour the olive oil into a skillet and heat to a
medium-high heat. Cook the burgers about 7 - 8 minutes on each side. While the
burgers are cooking, mix together the chicken stock, shallot, Dijon, capers, garlic, and
thyme in a bowl. About two or three minutes before you finish frying the burgers,
pour the chicken stock mixture into the skillet. Turn the patties at least once so they
can get a good coating of the mixture.

Oriental-Style Sausage Burgers

2 lbs ground sausage meat
6 burger buns or rolls of your choice
1 egg
3/4 cup sweet and sour sauce
2 tbsp soy sauce
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1 garlic clove (minced)
1 cup soft breadcrumbs
1/3 cup onion (finely diced)
1 (5 oz) can water chestnuts (drained and chopped)
1 cup bean sprouts

In a large bowl, combine the sausage meat, onion, breadcrumbs, egg, water chestnuts,
ginger, garlic, and soy sauce, and mix well. Allow this to chill in the fridge for about
half an hour. After refrigeration, separate the meat into 6 even portions, then form
them into patties. Bring your grill to a medium-high heat and cook the burgers until
there is no pink left in the meat. You can toast the buns or rolls on the grill as well, if
you like. Top the patty with bean sprouts and sweet and sour sauce before adding the
top bun.

Teriyaki Burgers

1 lb ground beef sirloin
4 burger buns or rolls of your choice
1 (3 oz) can French fried onions
1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
4 slices of mild/medium cheddar cheese

In a bowl, mix together the ground beef, French fried onions, and teriyaki sauce. Once
this has been well mixed, divide the meat into four portions and form into patties.
Lightly oil the grate of your grill and preheat to a medium-high heat. Grill each patty
until it has reached your desired doneness. Top with cheese and desired condiments.
