Our Favorite Burgers for Summer Grilling

Summer is just about here, and there’s no time like the present to fire up the grill – especially when you don’t want your stove heating up the house any more than it already does! And there’s nothing easier to grill than a delicious, hearty burger! Here are some of our absolute favorites for the summer!

It’s no secret that there isn’t much we enjoy more around here than a burger! I’ve toyed around for a while with publishing an e-book that’s just our favorite burgers, since there are so many of them! It’s amazing just how many combinations you can make from what’s essentially a combination of ground meat, bread, and fillings!

At the most basic, we’ll mix up ground beef with salt, pepper, and a little bit of onion powder and throw it on the grill to serve up with toasted buns, bacon, lettuce, tomato, and the sauces of people’s choice. There’s nothing better than a fresh grilled burger with nice fresh garden tomatoes!

Except for some of these other combinations, which I’m excited to combine in a great big reference post for you here! Hope you enjoy!

Teriyaki Burgers with Grilled Pineapple Rings

Inspired by one of our favorite bar and grill restaurants near our townhouse in Hawaii {we lived in Hawaii from 2005-2010 and again from 2013-2016}, this burger is a summer favorite no matter where we. Ground beef, homemade teriyaki sauce, shredded lettuce, fresh pineapple slices, and a whole lot of salty warm Hawaiian afternoon memories!

Cheddar Ranch Turkey Burgers

This ranch-seasoned tomato-laden saucy burger is anything but bland! It’s light but won’t leave you hungry, and will break up the typical summer grill fare you might feel like you have on repeat {seriously, friends, we grill things besides beef!}. The flavor combination on this burger has us craving it on the regular!

Spinach-Stuffed Portobello Burgers

Stepping away even farther from typical barbecue fare with this delicious and hearty Portobello mushroom cap stuffed with a mixture of spinach, mozzarella, parmesan, and panko, roasted until tender, and served with a splash of balsamic vinegar!

Cabernet Gorgonzola Burgers

We went all out dressing up this beautiful burger with rich deep red wine, spices, Ciabatta, and a touch of melted Gorgonzola cheese. There’s so much to love about these smoky delicious burgers and the wine you absolutely have to pair with them.

Lamb Burgers with Blue Cheese + Caramelized Onions

You have a whole heaping of savory deliciousness here, from ground lamb with Italian spices to delicious blue cheese, caramelized onions, broiled crispy potato roles, and sweet fresh tomato and arugula to finish them off. There’s so much to love about these delicious and flavorful burgers!
