Top 25 Hamburger Recipes

Most Popular and Best Hamburger Recipes


Since the first fast food joint started turning out hamburgers for the smallest possible price this, greatest of sandwiches has taken it on the chin. We are obligated to turn up our noses at these lifeless, greasy disks and instead seek out the freshest ingredients, the best meats and make our own, greatest hamburgers. These 25 burger recipes are consistently the top of the list on my site here. Consider them a guide to building your own perfect hamburger. After all, with all the variations of meats, condiments, toppings and buns there really should be a burger for everyone.

1. Fifty Dollar Rib-Eye Burger

Fifty Dollar Ribeye Burger
Regarding BBQ, Inc.
Quite likely to be the best hamburger you'll ever try. Rib-eye steaks are ground and filled with a delicious morel mushroom and shallot filling, topped with melted Port Salut cheese, a wine and Dijon reduction, onion rings, then served in a toasted brioche bun.

2. Bacon Double Cheese Stuffed Burgers

This bacon cheeseburger has the bacon and cheese stuffed inside the patty. A little surprise for a great tasting burger. Don't worry about hiding the filling away inside the burger, just make sure that the burgers are not too thick and that they are well packed. This recipe comes from Janis Novak.

3. Steak Burgers with Port Wine Reduction Spread

Steak Burgers with Port Wine Reduction Spread
Regarding BBQ Inc.
This is sure to be one of the best gourmet burgers you'll ever try. Large, well seasoned patties are grilled to perfection, placed onto toasted Ciabatta bread with melted cheese and topped with a delectable port wine spread. Definitely a great burger for any occasion.

4. Cajun Burgers

This burger recipe is filled with delicious flavor. Not only do the patties have a Cajun flare, but there is also a mildly spiced barbecue sauce to accompany it. You can step up the heat any way you want on these. Try a thick slice of pepper jack cheese (I like the habanero variety) or a hot and spice barbecue sauce. If you make an extra messy burger try and extra hearty (and crunchy) bread for the bun.

5. Brat Burger

Brat Burger
Regarding BBQ Inc.
Want the best of both worlds? How about a hamburger made with a bratwurst patty, topped with sauerkraut, mustard, and pickles. The best part is that this burger is as easy as any to make. These burgers have a unique flavor that is perfect for the person looking for more than that same old hamburger.

6. Bistro Burger

Bistro Burger
Regarding BBQ Inc.
If you are looking for something a little different in a burger then this just might be the one for you. These tasty patties are dished up on thin sandwich buns, topped with a fried egg and a simple burger sauce


7. All Gone Onion Burgers

Lee Custer (a great cook and a great guy) sent in this recipe for burger patties loaded with intense flavor many (many, many) years ago and it has continued to be one of the most popular burger recipes around. The best way, I've found, to crumble a bouillon cube is with a kitchen mallet.

8. The Stout Patty Melt

The Stout Patty Melt
Regarding BBQ Inc.

This patty melt contains a bit of stout beer in both the ground beef patties and the sauteed onions, giving it a rich beefy flavor. I recommend using a marbled rye for this recipe.

9. Lamb Sliders with Feta-Yogurt Sauce

Lamb Sliders with Feta-Yogurt Sauce
Regarding BBQ Inc.
If you love gyros, you will love these succulent lamb sliders.  Not only are they easy to prepare, but packed full of flavor.


10. Pulled Pork Sliders

Pulled Pork Sliders
Regarding BBQ Inc.
We are all agreement that pulled pork sandwiches are delicious, but these sliders are not only bite sized and flavorful, but includes a nicely seasoned mini beef patty.
