When I crave a burger it’s usually a double double animal style from In-N-Out. I know I’m not alone on that front but sadly we don’t have In-N-Out in Washington…so THAT sucks. Usually I have to rely on Dairy Queen’s Ultimate Burger to get my burger fix. It’s not In-N-Out but it is delicious. This past weekend Dan and I were supposed to go to one of Seattle’s yummiest burger joints, Red Mill Burger. But I got sick and figured we’d be better off going when I have functioning taste buds. Then I decided to make this post to torture everyone including myself with lovely, dripping, meaty goodness. Just a note, when it comes to burgers it’s impossible to please everyone so I’m just gonna please myself. Sorry, there are no veggie burgers here. Only glorious, juicy meat.
Anyway, it’s grilling time which means it’s time to build your own burgers at home, which means it’s time to go crazy with the fixings, which means it’s time to get your hands dirty with some seriously messy, delicious burgers. Honestly, I’m good with ketchup, pickles up the wazooooooo, lettuce, tomato, and a good bun that doesn’t get soaked in juices, and there are a few burgers on here that are on the edge of being a little too whacky, but I still wanna try them all. Burger season has begun. Rejoice!
Insanity Burger | Jamie Oliver – I love you Jamie Oliver. Ever since Jamie’s Comfort Food cookbook came out, this burger has been haunting my dreams. Look at that gorgeous piece of work right there. He killed it with this thing. From those lovely pickle slices to the glazed burgers to that delicious burger sauce. Yowza.
Texas Tailgate Burger Recipe | Food 52 – Any burger that involves potato chips gets my vote, especially BBQ chips. Not only that, this burger has a BBQ cheese sauce that sounds phenomenal.
Smoky Chipotle Cheddar Burgers with Mexican Street Corn Fritters | Half Baked Harvest – There’s so much to this burger I don’t know what to say, I really can’t imagine what it would taste like. But the thought of chipotle and corn fritters on a burger is making my taste buds tingle. Like whoa.
Brie Burger Recipe | POPSUGAR Food – A brie stuffed burger with spicy scallion mayo? Yum. This burger is a little more continental than the rest on this list but I needed one burger that would go just as good with a glass of wine as it would with a beer. Look at that cheese oozing out of that thing…ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
French Fry Bourbon Burgers | Half Baked Harvest – If you haven’t tried bourbon sauce on your burgers then stop everything and try this recipe right now. This sauce sounds absolutely addicting. Partner that up with some fries on your burger and you’re in for a nice long happy nap.
Bacon Burger with Bacon Onion Balsamic Jam | Smells Like Home – Ok, bacon, onion, balsamic jam…what more could you ask for? And cheese? Delicious beef smothered in cheese and bacon onion balsamic jam, this is the stuff dreams are made of.
