6 Must-Have Burger Recipes for #BurgerMonth

May 1, 2018

All the burger recipes you need for National Burger Month!

Bust out the grill – patio season is officially here! May is National Burger Month, which means it’s the perfect time to declare your “grill master” status by grilling up crave-worthy burgers using delicious mushrooms.

For our carnivore friends, blended burgers are the burger gold standard! To make a flavor-filled blended burger, finely chop your favorite mushrooms (we like using a blender to get the texture to match the ground meat), blend with your choice of ground meat, and cook to sizzling perfection. Mushrooms are perfect for adding to your favorite burger recipe because they increase the moisture and volume of each patty without adding loads of calories and saturated fat.

Thanks to mushrooms, burger month isn’t only for meat eaters! Vegetarians can swap a traditional burger patty for a meaty portabella mushroom. With its deep, meat-like texture and flavor, portabellas are a delicious alternative burger. Whether you choose a blended burger or a meatless portabella, mushrooms bring bold burger flavor that is unmatched. Now throw on your apron and fire up the grill!

#Repost @skinnypignyc Some burgers deserve to be put on a pedestal...and this New Yorker burger from @sixtyfivenyc at the @rainbowroomnyc is one of them.

And because I like to be honest with my posts, I will say that the only miss for me were the bits and pieces that look like pulled pork on top. They are NOT pulled pork and I guess I was a little sad about that. Too chewy. The Whiskey-brined pickle aioli, the Everything bun and the cherry tomato “raisins” were the real winners here anyway. 👌🏻🍔🍄🐷 #BlendedBurgerProject #contest #skinnypignyc #burger #jamesbeardfoundation #blenditarian
