6 Gourmet Burger Recipes to Flip Over


6 Gourmet Burger Recipes to Flip Over

Hamburgers are as American as apple pie. We enjoy them at cookouts, birthdays, celebrations and even as a daily staple. Over the years the burger has become more sophisticated and gourmet burger joints have popped up everywhere. But the beauty of the burger is that you don’t have to go out to have a good burger. You can create your own delicious gourmet sandwich at home with one of the six delectable recipes listed below.

Please note these gourmet burgers are not listed in any particular order as every single one delivers its own unique deliciousness in every bite.

The Bleu Cheese burger and its various variations is a burger recipe found on the menu of many a gourmet burger joint. At Burgers and Suds in Pompano Beach it is know as the Escobar Burger. While the bleu cheese burger might require a particular liking for bleu cheese for those who love it, this burger is always a hit.

Burger #4 Americana Burger from the Cheesecake Factory

Cheesecake Factory’s Americana Burger is the gourmet version of a famous fast food burger but much better because it is made with real meat. This mac daddy of an American burger sensation is made with American and cheddar cheese, crunchy potato crisps, Lettuce, tomato, grilled onions, pickles and Cheesecake Factory’s special secret sauce.

Burger #5 Bacon Jam Burger from Rok:Brgr

Your taste buds will have their own personal jam session after biting into this gourmet one-of-a-kind gourmet burger.

Burger # 6 The Everything Burger

X-Tudo means Cheese Everything Burger in Portuguese.

I have seen this burger named many things, the Hangover Burger, Monster Burger, the Texas Burger, X-Tudo (Cheese Everything Burger in Portuguese), but for the purposes of this article, we are going to call it the Everything Burger.

The Everything Burger has everything and then some. Some fixings you can include on everything burger besides the classic lettuce, tomato, pickles, onion, bacon and cheese include potato sticks, ham, more than one cheese, onion rings, egg and anything else you can pile on and fit into your mouth.

This list of gourmet burgers is by no means exclusive or exhaustive. The beauty of the burger is that the delicious variations in which you can enjoy it are endless.
