Anyone who knows me well knows I adore a good burger. I’m not saying that I eat one every week…but I could, easily. I’m always on the hunt for a good burger because, truly, why would you settle for anything less than a really good burger. A lot of people may order a filet mignon when they go out to a restaurant, but there are more times than not when I will order a burger over a filet.
I love the fact that there are so many ingredient options for patties, toppings, and buns. I am a girl who loves some seasoning to my burger, and I always require cheese. I’ve tried many a burger in my lifetime, from classic beef patties to turkey, chicken, salmon, pork, black bean, and even one that was made with quinoa and mushrooms. And while traveling I have had some great burgers, including a fine burger at a Scotland pub once. See what I am saying. I love a great burger!
Paula is all about a good burger, too, so we thought it would be fun to kick off your summer with six mouthwatering burgers that range from a classic with some pep to a bite of the holidays. Boy, did we come up with some fantastic recipes. You’ll want to try every one of them over the summer.
I have to say the Turkey ‘n’ Dressing burger took me by surprise. A turkey patty made with pieces of cornbread and seasonings and then slathered with a chipotle ketchup was pretty great. It’s Thanksgiving on a potato bun. If you’re looking for something with a classic flavor, then the All-American Burger is for you. Not only is there cheese on top of the patty, but in the middle. One bite, and that gooey surprise hits you! But if you are looking for a great burger that packs some Southern flair, then the Down South Burger is calling your name. This thick patty is sitting atop fried green tomato and topped with melted Gruyère cheese. And to just put it over the top, spread on the classic Rèmoulade Sauce. Delish!

Paula, I used to watch your show on Food Network a lot when I still had the TV and cable many year ago. You weren't even that big a star back then. I always love watching you cook on Youtube after I ditched my TV and cable and read your recipes on Food Network Magazines. I hope one day you can return to Food Network and the Food Network Magazine. I stop buying the magazine since you were gone.
