A great and easy way to add some flavor to your hamburgers!

Great recipe for a double cheeseburger.

Spicy Chopped Cheese Sandwich

Rating: 5 stars 2
The chopped cheese sandwich originated in New York City. It is not spicy and is traditionally made on a flat top grill. I do not have a flat top and also wanted to incorporate some heat so here is my not so traditional version.

Big Mac® Clone

Rating: 4.5 stars 33
A very delicious, authentic, and most importantly great clone of a Big Mac® from McDonald's®.

Loaded Greek Burgers

Rating: 4.5 stars 27
Tired of plain old 'burgers for summertime? Mix it up a bit by adding some classic Greek flavor: spinach, feta, roasted red pepper, and herbs...Yum! Serve these burgers on a warm toasted Kaiser roll, with a delicious feta cheese spread, fresh lettuce, and tomato.

Bacon Cheeseburgers with Steak Sauce

This burger came to me in a daydream and I just happened to have enough ingredients to make it work. It is incredibly juicy and the flavors harmonize very well together. If you enjoy a good pub-style burger, this one's definitely for you! Add whatever condiments you prefer.

Chinese-Style Cheeseburgers

Rating: 4 stars 49
These are great cheeseburgers with a Chinese flair. I use Chinese-style mustard and serve them on some lightly buttered and toasted hamburger buns. Try substituting teriyaki sauce for the soy sauce, too!

Sun-Dried Tomato and Blue Cheese Burgers

Rating: 4.5 stars 92
These hamburgers combine ground beef with sun-dried tomatoes, blue cheese, Worcestershire sauce, and dry mustard. These are best on the grill for great flavor.

Baked Philly Cheesesteak Sliders

Rating: 4.5 stars 14
A proper Philly cheesesteak is hard to make at home, as you need a professional meat slicer and a very hot flat top grill. But with this baked slider method, your average home cook can achieve something very close to the original. Plus, the small rolls make me feel like a big man. Speaking of feeling like a giant, football season is upon us, and I can't think of a better sandwich to make for your buddies coming over to watch the game! Garnish with chives.

Blue Cheese Burgers

Blue cheese burgers aren't just basic hamburgers. They're a real treat, and the wise cook will make up a dozen or so for the freezer. If you like blue cheese, you'll never forget these burgers.

Juicy Lucy Burgers

Rating: 4.5 stars 232
A favorite of Minnesotans! The famous Juicy Lucy! Mmmm. So good. You MUST use American cheese on this to achieve the juiciness in the middle! I like sauteed mushrooms and onions on mine!
