Up Your Burger Game This Memorial Day with These Gourmet Recipes

Grilling burgers memorial day

Fortunately for those of us who live in the South, there’s really no such thing as “grilling season.” With our mild weather year-round, anytime’s the right time to fire up the grill and gather your friends for burgers and brews. The only drawback—and we use that word loosely—would have to be that when you grill all the time, you might eventually get tired of the same old burgers, steaks, chicken, and dogs. Never fear: With these jazzed-up burger recipes, you can keep from burning out on your tried-and-true go-to’s and maintain your rightful spot as neighborhood grill master.

Burgers to Beat

Honestly, it’s hard to go wrong when you generously season thick beef patties and toss them on an open flame. Sandwich the chargrilled beauties between two hunks of bread, add a little cheese and some fresh toppings, and you’ve got a foolproof crowd-pleaser. But with summer just around the corner and Memorial Day barbecues looming even before then, you’ll want to—well—beef up your burger recipes to really impress.

Putting a creative spin on the traditional burger is easy, and the options limitless. Here are a few that sound especially irresistible. Tie on your Kiss the Cook apron and get ready to flip your way to grilling greatness.

  • Cheesy Philly Cheesesteak Gourmet Burger. Marrying the flavors of a burger and a sandwich superstar, this one features sautéed peppers, caramelized onions, and ooey-gooey provolone sauce for the ultimate taste sensation.
  • Cheesy Bacon Cowboy Burger. Smoky bacon meets melty cheddar, barbecue sauce (as sweet or spicy as you like), and the crunch of thick-cut onion rings. Make extra—these will go fast.
  • Big Kahuna Hawaiian Burger. Bring a little island flavor to your backyard barbecue with this burger, which features pineapple and teriyaki sauce in a culinary nod to paradise.
  • Spicy Buffalo Chicken Burger. If you want a break from the red-meat circuit, try this boldly flavored sandwich incarnation of Buffalo chicken wings. It has everything you love about hot wings—chicken, sweet and spicy sauce, pungent blue cheese—in a neater-to-eat handheld form.
