    These are our very favorite burgers on the grill. I sometimes serve the sauce with these also. The sauce is also good with hot dogs or brats.

    Sweet Bacon & Cheese Burger

    4 thick bacon slices
    1/4 cup packed brown sugar
    2 lb. 85 percent lean ground chuck or 90 percent lean ground sirloin
    3/4 cup cheddar cheese, chopped
    Salt and ground black pepper
    4 good quality hamburger buns
    4 slices ripe tomato
    4 thin slices sweet white onion
    4 lettuce leaves

    1. Place bacon slices on the unheated rack of a broiler pan. Sprinkle each slice with brown sugar. Bake in a 450 degree F oven for 10 minutes or until crisp. When cool enough to handle, chop bacon; set aside.

    2. Divide beef into eight equal portions. Pat beef portions into patties approximately 4 inches in diameter and about 3/4-inch thick.

    3. Equally divide and place the bacon and 3 tablespoons of the cheese in the middle of four of the patties, leaving 1/2 inch around the edge of the patty. Top each with the remaining 4 patties. Pinch edges of top and bottom patties together to form one large burger patty. Chill, covered, in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

    4. Season burgers with salt and black pepper. Place the patties on the well-oiled rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 10 minutes. Turn with a wide spatula and grill 10 to 12 minutes more, until meat is cooked and an instant-read thermometer inserted into patties registers 160 degrees F. Toast buns, cut side down, on grill during last 1 to 2 minutes of grilling. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place patties on grill rack and cover and grill as above.)

    5. Place a cooked burger on bottom half of each bun. If you like, top each with tomato, onion, and lettuce. Makes 4 servings.

    Hamburger Sauce

    1-1/2 pounds green tomatoes (5 medium), quartered
    2 large red baking apples, quartered and cored
    2 small red peppers
    1 large white onion, peeled and cut up
    1-1/4 cups sugar
    1 cup cider vinegar
    2-1/2 teaspoon salt
    3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
    3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

    1. With a large food processor fitted with a shredding blade, shred the tomatoes, apples, peppers, and onion. In a 4-quart Dutch oven combine sugar, vinegar, salt, black pepper, and spices. Cook and stir until sugar is dissolved; add shredded tomato mixture. Bring to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, about 30 minutes or until reduced to about 5 cups.

    2. Cool slightly; transfer to jars or freezer containers. Cover and chill to store, or label and freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw to serve.

    3. Serve as a condiment with hamburgers. Makes 5 cups.

    Moussaka Burgers with Tomato Mint Salsa and Blue Cheese Ginger Mayonnaise

    1 cup good quality mayonnaise
    2 tablespoons sour cream
    1 1/2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger root
    4 ounces crumbled blue cheese

    2 pounds ground beef
    1 cup coarse grated eggplant
    2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
    1 teaspoon ground cumin
    1/2 teaspoon allspice
    1 teaspoon salt

    1 1/2 cups chopped tomato
    1/3 cup chopped onion
    2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
    1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
    Salt and pepper
    Vegetable oil
    6 good-quality hamburger buns, split

    For mayonnaise combine mayonnaise with sour cream and ginger. Fold in blue cheese and chill until needed.

    To prepare burgers combine ground beef, eggplant, garlic, cinnamon, cumin, allspice and salt until thoroughly incorporated, but not overly compacted. Form meat into six patties sized to fit buns.

    Salsa is made by combining in a small bowl the chopped tomatoes with mint, onion and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper.

    Heat stove top grill pan or heavy skillet and brush with oil. Cook patties turning once until done to personal preference. For medium cook 5 to 7 minutes on each side to an internal temperature of 160 degrees.

    To assemble burgers, spread mayonnaise over the cut sides of warmed buns. On each bun bottom, place a patty and top with salsa. Add the top bun and serve.

    Serves 6

    Picante Fresca Turkey Burger

    1/2 pound lean ground turkey (makes 2 burgers)

    1 jalapeno, diced

    1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro

    1 tbsp fresh chopped ginger

    1 tsp ground ginger

    1/4 cup gruyere cheese, plus some for sprinkling

    1 garlic clove, chopped

    Mixed greens


    2 tsp olive oil

    1/2 lime

    Chop your jalapeno, cilantro, garlic, and ginger and add to ground turkey. Use your hands to knead it all together. Form into patties, about 4 inches wide and 1/2 inch thick.

    Heat 1 tsp of olive oil in your pan. Place the patties in the pan, over medium heat. Turkey takes a little longer to cook without drying it out, about twenty minutes over medium heat. Flip them every five minutes or so, and make sure they don’t get burned.

    Brush your buns with olive oil and sprinkle ground ginger and gruyere. Bake at 300* for about five minutes.

    Once your toast has gotten nice and crispy, top with mixed greens and sprinkle a little more grated gruyere on the greens. When your burger is fully cooked, place it on top of the mixed greens and drizzle with lime juice.

    Casablanca Burgers

    These are great for something a little different. Plain old hamburgers are just not the same after trying something as flavorful as these. Easy for company too - make them in advance and have them pre-formed, and ready for the grill. Give them a try!

    1 lb. ground beef
    1 2.25 oz. bag pine nuts
    6 dried apricots, finely diced
    ½ teaspoon cumin
    ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
    ¼ teaspoon coriander
    ½ teaspoon salt
    ¼ teaspoon pepper
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

    Place all ingredients in large bowl and mix by hand until well combined. Shape mixture into 4 large patties and grill approximately 4 minutes per side over high heat until done. Top burgers with red leaf lettuce and tomato and serve on Kaiser buns.
