Tasty hamburger recipes from around the world
There’s no denying that the classic hamburger with its cheese melt, tomato slices, and the juicy patty is delicious. But every once in a while, our taste buds crave something different. Luckily for us, the hamburger has variants worldwide — the patty has been marinated, the garnishes have gotten an upgrade, and the range of sauces now includes sriracha, chimichurri, and salsa. We picked out the best burger recipes to inspire you to spruce up your sliders. Take a look.
Moussaka patty burgers
This is a moussaka-inspired burger that brings together flavors of cinnamon, graviera cheese, and eggplant. The Greeks have been eating burgers for decades, and this one brings together some all-time favorite Mediterranean ingredients. For the patty, a nice chunk of ground beef or lamb is spiced up with cinnamon and mixed with onion, which brings out the meat’s savory taste. The grilled eggplant lends a crunchy texture to the meal, while the Greek cheese brings the creaminess. This burger recipe is from Closet Cooking. They also have a delicious bechamel cheese sauce recipe that goes excellently with the patty.
Korean BBQ burger
This BBQ burger comes with a patty glazed in sticky sauce and fresh kimchi slaw, making for the perfect bite. The Cosy Apron prepares the BBQ sauce for the burger at home using ingredients like brown sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil, and black pepper. She also adds layers of flavor with a bit of ginger and honey. Then, the kimchi slaw is prepared with a mix of spicy fermented cabbage, mayo, honey, and rice vinegar. This combination of the sauce and salad makes this one of the best burger recipes out there. It looks amazing; it tastes delicious too!
Salmon burger with caramelized pineapple
After you’ve tried the beef and lamb patty recipes, give seafood a go! The very tropical salmon burger recipe from Half Baked Harvest is one of the best burger recipes we came across with flavors of Hawaii. The velvety mashed avocado and the tangy jalapeno complement the salmon incredibly. But the pineapple rings caramelized with coconut oil are the real highlight of the burger, and we’re certain that these will transport you to the Hawaiian islands.
Spicy Mexican burger
To pack in a fiery spicy flavor into the patty, go Mexican all the way. A guajillo chile is used to spice up ground beef. Toasted spices like chile, garlic, and onion powder are also added to ramp up the heat. You can use two cheese slices to balance the heat out, but if you want to retain the spice, be brave and use one! While assembling the burger, spread a homemade or store-bought chipotle mayo onto the bread and top the patty with dill pickles and tomato slices.
The chimichurri is a parsley-based marinade or sauce, green in color with a kick of garlic and chili pepper. In Argentina, it’s used to dress burger patties, which deepens the flavor of whichever meat is used. If you plan on preparing chimichurri burgers, use a semi-hard cheese that quickly melts on the grill. To prepare the sauce, we suggest using red wine vinegar and paprika to ace the piquant flavor of the chimichurri.
Caribbean jerk slider
The Caribbean jerk slider is everything a burger should be — meaty, saucy, and cheesy. Shared by chef Eddie Jackson, this is one of the best burger recipes, simply because of the impeccable trio — ground beef patties, mild cheddar cheese, and amazing Caribbean flavors. The jerk flavor, native to Jamaica, comes from the allspice, red pepper, onion, and garlic powder, infused into the patty. That’s not all; a jerk ketchup is spread over the sides of the sliders to pack in a little extra heat. If you use large portions, you can make several sliders, enough for a larger group of people. This recipe is perfect for a game night with your pals and is just too tasty to pass up on!
