I love hamburgers. I don't think I've ever eaten a burger I didn't like. But as much as I love them, I thought it might be fun to see what else I could do with them. So if you like to experiment, or if you're getting a little tired of the same old burgers, here are a few ways to spice them up.

I love hamburgers. I don't think I've ever eaten a burger I didn't like. But as much as I love them, I thought it might be fun to see what else I could do with them. So if you like to experiment, or if you're getting a little tired of the same old burgers, here are a few ways to spice them up.

Change up the meat 
I recently tried making pork burgers, and they turned out great! Lean ground pork is not expensive, and makes a great burger. You can also use ground chicken, turkey, veal or lamb. Why not try a buffalo burger or even horse meat? (I've never tried horse meat myself but I hear it's quite lean and tasty).

Change up the recipe 
Here's an easy way to make really tasty burgers: Use your favorite meatloaf recipe, and make patties out of the mixture. You can do the same with a meatball recipe (what's a meatball but a ball-shaped burger?) You can then cook your burgers in the oven or on the stove top.

Change up the shape 
Who says burgers have to round? Well, not the guy who started Wendy's, that's for sure. Have your kids make different shaped patties; they'll have fun doing it, and love eating them. How about a heart shape? Is there such a thing as a romantic burger?

Change up the bun 
Standard grocery-bought hamburger buns tend to be dull and tasteless. Try a Kaiser roll instead, an onion roll or even a bagel. I've never tried an English muffin, but it might work.

Change up the condiments 
Try chili sauce, salsa, barbecue sauce or salad dressing... maybe even hummus, why not? Instead of lettuce, try watercress, arugula, or alfalfa sprouts.

Don't be afraid to experiment. You'll have fun thinking up your own variations. Go ahead, change up your burgers!
