I just like them simple. Grass-Fed Beef (or Buffalo or Turkey), a little salt and pepper then garnished with Swiss Cheese, fresh onion slices, Tomato and lettuce on an onion roll! Gotta be Medium-Rare! Hopefully this is not a recipe contest!

We love just a classic bacon cheeseburger at our house, but we have added our own twist. You have to start out with a really tasty bun, then patty out a half pound grass fed beef with half pound bacon(chopped up in food processor). Season with blackening season(1 tsp each:cumin, paprika, cayenne, oregano, black pepper, salt). Melt a slice of smoked gouda on top & finish that great burger with lettuce, tomato, pickle & jalapeno!! I know what's for dinner tonight!!!!

before making my perfect burger i take my burger patties out approximately 1- 1 1/2 hours before cooking time and i marinade my patties in vinegar, and worchestire sauce until cook time. while cooking/grilling the patties i place a few slices of fresh onionon top of them and when the burger is finally finished i immediately place a few slices of cheese on top. it is now time to "dress" my burger 1.i first put a little mayo on both sides of my bun 2.i place my burger on the lower bun and put it aside until i am finished "dressing" the rest of it. 3. next i spread alittle guacamole on the top bun only. 4. next i put about 4 pickles on the top bun also. 5.ketchup and mustard are a must so they come next. 6.i usually like a few shredded potatoes on top of my burger also but it is optional. 7.i then put a few roasted mushrooms on my bun and i place the top portion and bottom portion of my burger together...You now have My Perfect Burger. 8. IT IS NOW TIME FOR YOU TO EAT YOUR BURGER ! ;)

A kobe beef burger with black truffle shavings in the beef mixture topped with wild arugula, followed by a slice of truffle cheese to add an earthy and pungent aroma and flavor, followed by a bun with melted truffle butter to enhance the buns flavor. On the side you get beautiful white truffle infused french fries and thats done by adding a touch of white truffle oil to the fries after they are done cooking. Talk about pure love. Lets see who can top this burger!!!

We have 2 in this house: Grass feed beef with applewood smoked bacon and good cheese with garden fresh tomatoes..burger is simply seasoned w/salt and pepper and grilled to medium/medium well max. The other fave is a ground turkey burger seasoned with garlic/onion powder, salt and pepper, grilled or cooked in a hot pan with a nice seared and finished in the oven to keep the juices in. Then topped w/a grilled portobello and fresh mozzarella and garden tomato and a dab of homemade pesto...Oh yumm I can go for one now.

I'm a purist so for me it's med rare grass fed beef, bacon (first boiled then fried which will produce the best tasting, crispiest and least fatty bacon you've ever had) and a slice of american cheese on a potato bread bun.

Gourmet Burger: Nothing too crazy, lets the beef shine. 80/20 Grass-fed Ground Beef (ground to order if possible) Onions finely chopped Fresh Garlic Garlic Powder Handfuls of flat leaf parsley Ritz Crackers smashed Egg for binding Splashes of worshestire (however you spell it) SALT and Pepper Mix all the together in large mixing gently not overworking it. Salting is most important and I usually salt and pepper the patties afterwards as well. Let the patties rest a little at room temperature and get to work on aioli. I usually do a carmelized onion aioli by reducing down a full white onion and a little garlic and splash of worsheshire for color as well. Sear patty on screaming on pan, I usuaully put Havarti or sharp cheddar, but if you want more meltiness a processed cheese is best for it. Cheese goes on bottom!!! top fresh med cooked patty with ketchup, carmelized onion aioli, a little yellow mustard, then nice little spring mix on top with a large tomatoe slice and flat cut pickles. good luck! This can be adapted for a healthier bigger by mixing in ground turkey and using bulgar instead of crackers.

I often go crazy on the toppings, but really; sometimes just a spread of mayo under a perfectly medium rare burger with some sharp cheddar cheese is too perfect in it's simplicity.

My favorite burger starts with grass-fed beef, 80/20 or 85/15. From there, mix in some rolled oats and Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. Grill to medium rare, then place on a fresh grilled roll of your preference, I prefer a good Challah roll and top with roasted jalapeno (seeded and peeled), brie cheese and a couple slices of avocado. That's all that is needed! Try it, you won't be disappointed!!

My perfect burger is all about the ARTICHOKE HEARTS! I like to use a kaiser roll brushed with a bit of olive oil, rosemary, and a pinch of sea salt. Add the grass fed organic beef patty and top it off with some artichoke hearts and roasted red peppers. So delicious and flavorful! :)

Nothing beats the taste of the islands! Toppings: grilled fresh pineapple rings, greens of choice, caramelized onions, garlic aioli, and a little dash of red pepper flakes or cayenne. Savory, sweet, and spicy - explosion in your mouth!
