14 Seriously Tasty Burgers You've Got to Try this Weekend

The burger is usually thought of as summer fare — the progeny of some spatula-wielding self-appointed grill master. But true burger fans know that the very best are not cooked over grill grates, but on screaming hot solid surfaces, where the rendering fat and juices stay near the patty, creating not only a crispy exterior, but the deep, caramelized, confit-like richness that defines the flavor of a great burger.

Which means, of course, that burgers are actually year-round food, and armed with a heavy cast iron skillet or griddle, a great way to spend an dark, cold evening stuck inside. If we're gonna have January, than let us always have burgers.

@chris - great idea! If you do it (the bread recipe thing), let us know how it goes.


Chris T on Feb 03, 2017:

Ok yes! Love the recipes!
I might tweak the homemade bread recipe you posted a while back to make some great buns to go along with some of these.

Another twist on the Peanut butter cheeseburger is the PB&J peanutbutter, bbq, and jalapeno burger. Sub the beef for ground turkey. Either way it's crazy good.
