Cheeseburgers have been a staple of American culture since the 1920’s. In 1926, Lionel Sternberger got the brilliantly cheesy idea to add a slice of cheese to his burger while working as a fry cook at his father’s Pasadena, California sandwich shop, “The Rite Spot.” Today, that basic cheeseburger has been re-created into a variety of mouth-watering recipes.
Here are our top 5 favorite creative burger recipes for you to try:
- The Pizza Burger
- The Bloody Mary Burger
- Gingered Burger w/Lime Slaw
- French Onion Soup Burger
- The Mediterranean Burger
Not a fan of meat? No problem! With so many vegan options available these days, you can still make each of these burgers without meat. Try them with the Impossible Burger or your favorite black bean burger. There are also many options for vegan cheeses, vegan bacon, and even vegan pepperoni!
