My favorite burger is grilled in a cast iron pan or over charcoals to medium rare. Then topped with my son's pickles ( www.greenhollowsf.com/), chopped sauteed shallots, slices of fresh avocado and heirloom tomatoes, and a garlic aioli.

Armenian style: cumin, chopped onions, parsley all mixed into raw meat before cooking on the stove or grill.

I love lots of carmelised onions, a thick chunk of cheddar cheese, 2 slices of bacon, a very thin slice of tomato, and a roasted bun slathered with mayo. =_

Grass fed beef burgers with mustard, garlic powder, salt and pepper mixed into the ground beef prior to cooking, then bun-less topped with sauteed onions and mushrooms, goat cheese (cheve), sliced avocado and Amy's Spicy BBQ sauce drizzled on top. Delicious!

I love my veggie burgers, the ones that are supposed to taste like hamburgers, with ketchup, mustard, and dill pickle slices. Nothing too fancy. I also love to make marinated grilled portobella cap burgers topped with smoked provolone cheese. Yummers!

In my humble opinion :), there is nothing better than a turkey burger topped with honeyed goat cheese, a few lightly sauteed red onion rings and a slice of homegrown beefsteak tomato all wrapped up in a few crisp leaves of iceberg lettuce.
