Burgers Go Beyond Beef
On the surface, there’s nothing more American than a burger. But America has never really been a homogenous nation, diversity has always been there, sometimes just beneath the surface. And, if you lift the top of a burger these days, you might not find beef inside.
Don't Forget Pork for a Perfect Burger
When you think burgers, your mind probably immediately goes to beef. And when we say "alternative," you probably think of chicken, turkey, or maybe veggie. But don't forget the other white meat, pork. Ground pork can add plenty of flavor and juicy texture to any burger combination.
Tips for Turkey and Chicken Burgers
For meat eaters looking for something a little lighter, ground turkey or chicken make great substitutes for a beef patty. The lighter flavors also mean you can doctor up the grind to create some interesting tastes.
Perfecting the Black Bean Burger
Dense and filling, plus high in protein, black bean patties make for an excellent burger without the meat. They are also a great vehicle for customizing the taste, from herbaceous and fresh with cilantro to jacked up on spices with cayenne or peppers like Poblano.
Give Seafood a Spot On Your Burger Menu
Fish or shellfish, the bounty of the sea is the perfect source for a burger patty. The only hard part is narrowing down which variety you want to go with.
Mix It Up With a Mushroom Burger
Portobello mushrooms grill really well and are literally nature’s patty. They also dry out easily and become leathery and tasteless. Brushing with oil can help avoid that as can placing in a marinade. For brushing, and marinades, the first oil that comes to mind is olive oil.
