Pub-Style Burger

Ingredients:
2 lbs of ground beef sirloin
4 large burger buns or rolls of your choice
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
3/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup chives (chopped)
1/4 cup applesauce (unsweetened)
1/4 cup horseradish
1/4 cup parsley (finely chopped)
1 tbsp olive oil
1 bunch of watercress
Salt and pepper

Directions:
Mix together the applesauce, sour cream, horseradish, breadcrumbs, pepper, and chives. Cover with lid or plastic wrap and refrigerate. In a large bowl, blend together the beef, parsley, and Worcestershire sauce. Salt and pepper to your own taste. Shape the beef into four decent-sized patties. Coat each one in olive oil and cook in a skillet until it reaches your desired doneness. When assembling the burger, place a bit of watercress and horseradish mixture on top of the patty, then top with bun.

Tasty Turkey Burger

Ingredients:
2 lbs ground turkey
4 burger buns or rolls of your choice
Salt and pepper
2 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup chicken stock
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 shallot (finely chopped)
2 cloves garlic (finely chopped)
2 sprigs of thyme (chopped)
2 tbsp capers (chopped)

Directions:
In a large bowl, mix together the ground turkey with salt and pepper. When the salt and pepper have been well blended into the meat, divide it into four even sections. Shape each section into a patty. Pour the olive oil into a skillet and heat to a medium-high heat. Cook the burgers about 7 - 8 minutes on each side. While the burgers are cooking, mix together the chicken stock, shallot, Dijon, capers, garlic, and thyme in a bowl. About two or three minutes before you finish frying the burgers, pour the chicken stock mixture into the skillet. Turn the patties at least once so they can get a good coating of the mixture.

Oriental-Style Sausage Burgers

Ingredients:
2 lbs ground sausage meat
6 burger buns or rolls of your choice
1 egg
3/4 cup sweet and sour sauce
2 tbsp soy sauce
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1 garlic clove (minced)
1 cup soft breadcrumbs
1/3 cup onion (finely diced)
1 (5 oz) can water chestnuts (drained and chopped)
1 cup bean sprouts

Directions:
In a large bowl, combine the sausage meat, onion, breadcrumbs, egg, water chestnuts, ginger, garlic, and soy sauce, and mix well. Allow this to chill in the fridge for about half an hour. After refrigeration, separate the meat into 6 even portions, then form them into patties. Bring your grill to a medium-high heat and cook the burgers until there is no pink left in the meat. You can toast the buns or rolls on the grill as well, if you like. Top the patty with bean sprouts and sweet and sour sauce before adding the top bun.

Teriyaki Burgers

1 lb ground beef sirloin
4 burger buns or rolls of your choice
1 (3 oz) can French fried onions
1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
4 slices of mild/medium cheddar cheese

Directions:
In a bowl, mix together the ground beef, French fried onions, and teriyaki sauce. Once this has been well mixed, divide the meat into four portions and form into patties. Lightly oil the grate of your grill and preheat to a medium-high heat. Grill each patty until it has reached your desired doneness. Top with cheese and desired condiments.
