Fire Up the Grill (or Stove) And Make These Delicious Burger Recipes (3)

The one time of year I'm always down to celebrate is burger season. I'll keep it real with you, I'm a sucker for a burger any time of the year, but something about summer thrills the burger aficionado in me.You get to crank up the grill (or cast iron) and make flavorful patties and all of the best side dishes—potato salad, pasta salad, and grilled veggies.

We’re here to keep burger season exciting for you. From turkey to tuna and all things in between, you're going to find and fall in love with one (or ten) of these burger recipes. If you’re looking for a patty that is out-of-the-box you can try lamb burgers with a creamy and herbaceous tzatziki sauce. Or keep it a little more traditional with a gooey patty melt or beef burger topped with blue cheese (yes, you heard that right).

This burger roundup has EVERY burger recipe you'll ever need. There is something for everyone, we promise! If you want to take your summer gatherings over the top you can even whip up a few additional burger sauces and spreads for your friends and family to try out.

Because I know how important burger life is, I've even arranged the patties by category. You have chicken burgers, unique meats like bison and lamb burgers, then we move on to classic beef burgers, turkey burgers, pork burgers, and last but certainly not least seafood and veggie burgers.

Pair your burger with a simple salad, chips, fries, or plantains and grab a cold beverage because burger season is about to be off to a great start.

  • Greek Lamb Burgers with Tzatziki Sauce

    Fire Up the Grill (or Stove) And Make These Delicious Burger Recipes (6)

    Lamb is high on flavor. I recommend using New Zealand lamb if this is your first time making a lamb burger because it is less gamy in flavor. You’ll fall in love with these burgers after one bite. These patties are drizzled with a tzatziki cucumber sauce and loaded up with feta, lettuce, red onion, and tomatoes.

  • Chipotle Burger

    Fire Up the Grill (or Stove) And Make These Delicious Burger Recipes (12)

    Control the level of spiciness in these burgers by adding more or less of the canned chipotle peppers to the meat mix. A great way to incorporate more of that leftover adobo sauce is to fold it into mayonnaise for slathering on the bun later.

    Who doesn't love a good ol' fashioned patty melt? Skip the buns for this one. A patty melt tastes best on buttery sliced bread that's been toasted on a cast-iron skillet. Want to level it up? Make it with sliced brioche.

    You'd be hard-pressed to find a more flavor-filled burger than this one. The heat of the scotch bonnet peppers is tempered by the cool, creamy slaw topping.

  • Stovetop Double-Stack Cheeseburgers

    Fire Up the Grill (or Stove) And Make These Delicious Burger Recipes (17)

    You can use white or dark meat for these turkey burgers, but I like a mix of both. Adjust the degree of spiciness with a few more (or less if you don’t like things that spicy) shakes of hot sauce. I'm a spicy girl myself.

    Tuna fish salad gets all the love, but this burger is coming for the title. It's filled with veggies and is a little messy to eat. Don't skimp on that dill olive mayo, either. Like many other sauces, it's make-ahead friendly and tastes better the longer it sits.
