Olive burgers are a mid-Michigan regional favorite. If you love the tang of pickles, try these green olive burgers!

This veggie burger is packed with veggie and quinoa goodness including lots of meatless protein. A great alternative to a beef burger and just as hearty and filling. It can be cooked on the grill or baked in the oven. The egg and cheese may be left out to make this recipe vegan.

Chef John's Turkey Burger

This recipe uses some of the same techniques and seasonings as the shish kebab to improve the dull turkey burger. For something made with meat that is 95% fat free this is pretty good!

Jumbo Bacon Avocado Horseradish Cheeseburgers

Rating: 4 stars

The slight kick of the horseradish-mayo gives these a great taste, and using the absolute freshest bread you can find will make it all come together beautifully. The recipe calls for telera rolls, but ciabatta or any fresh and soft roll will do if you can't find telera. You need a roll that holds its shape... You will also need more than one napkin.

Mediterranean Lamb Burgers

These burgers are juicy and full of flavor. Even people who don't really like lamb have enjoyed these burgers. You can double the recipe and freeze half of the patties in wax paper to eat at a later time. Fine to place on the grill frozen (just add to the cooking time).

A spicy, flavorful, and moist turkey burger. This is my husband's favorite. It tastes delicious and I make it with extra lean ground turkey breast. The grated onion adds moisture as well as flavor to the turkey.

These burgers combine beef and sausage with all the fixin's right inside! They're made for grilling outside, but could easily be done on an indoor grill, too.

Juiciest Hamburgers Ever

Rating: 4.4 stars

No more dry, lackluster burgers. These are juicy, and spices can be easily added or changed to suit anyone's taste. Baste frequently with your favorite barbeque sauce. If you find the meat mixture too mushy, just add more bread crumbs until it forms patties that hold their shape.
