Happy Fourth of July: Burger Recipes

Hi!  Happy Fourth of July!  I hope you are enjoying a nice day of relaxing with some great food and greater friends and family!  If you are heading to a cookout or have some unexpected guests suddenly popping by, I’ve got you covered with some burger recipes!

Burgers are traditional American fare, especially on the Fourth of July so I love serving them up, plus they are pretty easy to do.  This year I elected to some sliders so I could do a bunch of different types of burgers.

Fourth of July Burger Sliders

All you need are a couple types of meat.  I opted for turkey, lean sirloin and then a little bit fattier ground beef.  And don’t forget to hunt down those slider buns!

I started out with a Mexican style burger.  This one was so easy to do.  I took the ground turkey and mixed in a packet of taco seasoning and added a little bit of spicy Mexican chili powder.  I then formed small slider patties and cooked them on the grill for about 10 minutes, in the last 2 minutes I added a couple of different cheeses.  I used pepperjack cheese on some of them and habanero cheese on the others.

These burgers can then be topped with guacamole (I used store-bought because it was easier) and salsa.  Make sure you put all the condiments out on a big platter so people can pick and choose them!

Next up were these Caprese Burgers.  A little Italian twist on the classic burger.  For these burgers I used the slightly fattier ground beef and marinated the meat with balsamic vinegar.  In the last two minutes of cooking I topped with fresh mozzarella cheese.

These burgers can be topped with tomatoes and fresh basil and a bit of balsamic vinegar.

Finally, we have the classic American sliders.  For these burgers I used the leaner ground sirloin.  In the last two minutes of cooking, I topped them with classic cheddar cheese.

I served these burgers with a sides of sweet potato fries. My favorite and healthier than regular fries!

Readers, what are you eating for the fourth?
