7 Surprising Ways to Better Your Burger Game This Summer

by in Recipes, June 23rd, 2016

Ultimate Backyard BurgerThere are two kinds of people in this world: those who make the burgers (hovering over an open flame, flipping each one with serious skill and taking all the credit) and those who devour them (with glee and zero regrets). For the former group of burger lovers, expanding your burger craft is what summer is all about. Turn on the grill and switch things up — we’ve got some surprising ways to better your burger game from here on out.

1. Reconsider your meat mix.

Your go-to, home-grilled burger might be made entirely of beef, but integrating another kind of meat for a more flavorful blend will have your next batch neck and neck with the pros’ patties. The Ultimate Backyard Burger, for instance, calls for a blend of ground chuck, brisket and lamb for moist, juicy results.

One Recipe, Two Meals: Stuffed Burgers with So. Much. Cheese.

by in Family, Recipes, June 7th, 2016

One Recipe, Two Meals: Stuffed BurgersWell, hey, summer! Take off your shoes and stay awhile.

We’ve had the rainiest spring, you guys. Like, record rainfall amounts. And while I completely love and adore thunderstorm-y days, I’m actually excited to feel the yard start to dry out and not be so dang squishy. It’s finally warm enough for the kids to play in the sprinklers and kiddie pool whilst taking down 13 ice pops at once. And it’s finally sunny enough for me to sit out on a blanket with a bottle of rosé and watch them gallivant for hours and hours.

Oh, wait. I do that year-round. Never mind.

BUT! What I don’t normally do is stuff burgers. As in, stuff enormous beefy burgers with fabulous cheeses: white cheddar for the littles and my homemade pimento cheese for the adults! If you’ve never made pimento cheese from scratch, I mourn for you. It is WONDERFUL. And when you wrap a mound of meat around it, gah. It’s even better. Can’t deal. Won’t.

Except I totally do deal.

Let’s make some before I weep myself into next season.

7 Dishes That Are Just As Good (If Not Better) As Burgers

by in Recipes, June 5th, 2016

Who doesn’t love a good burger? Vegetarians and vegans, of course. But for everyone else, the combination of toasted bun + melted cheese + thick, juicy patty is sheer perfection. Now that summer’s here, we’re looking for ways to turn everything into a burger — pizza, cheesesteaks, bagels and lox. No dish is immune to our scheming desire for meaty goodness sandwiched between buttery, toasty bread. Here’s how we’ve reimagined a few of our favorite dishes as summer’s reigning food of choice.

BBLT
What could possibly be better than a crisp, buttery BLT, hot off the griddle? All the components of a BLT surrounding a thick, smoky beef patty, obviously. We’ll call it the BBLT: Bacon, Beef, Lettuce and Tomato. Try Food Network Magazine’s BLT Burgers with Bacon Mayonnaise for dinner tonight, and you’ll never go back to the single B.

In Praise of Classic and Creative Burgers on The Kitchen

by in Recipes, Shows, May 28th, 2016

My Best BurgerHere’s the thing about burgers: Even when they’re dressed down, with just a juicy patty and a slice of gooey cheese, they’re pretty satisfying. Extremely satisfying, actually. But when you dress them up with bold ingredients, the flavors and textures are intensified, making them all the more craveworthy. On this morning’s brand-new episode of The Kitchen, the cast showed off two new takes on burgers — one classic and the other creative. Both of them will keep you coming back for more all summer long. See below how the co-hosts did it.
