Beyond Basic Burgers - 4 Different Burgers

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by internetnut

There's a secret to the better burger and you'll find it in the mix. Because the flavors are right in the meat and not just from the toppings, these burgers explode with taste from the first bite to the last. Make an everyday barbecue taste gourmet from the inside out. I found the recipe in Kraft Food & Family magazine. I have not tried this recipe, but I'm posting it for safe keeping.

*** Made for Variety is the Spice of Life Event 2014 ***<br/>I made the turkey version. Great flavor. HOWEVER, I used a frozen brand of ground turkey - EPIC fail. If you are going to make this version, please use FRESH ground turkey if you can get it. Or, buy turkey and grind your own. I had to use what was on hand at my store. If you find yourself having to use frozen ground turkey like I did, OMIT the 1/2 cup of water it calls for. And, possibly add more stuffing mix. I didn't have any more stuffing mix on hand, and no bread crumbs either. What I did end up doing was browning the mixture and used it in sloppy joes. I tasted the turkey mixture when it was cooked, and I do believe it would be a great as a burger. I am posting my experience, hoping to help others avoid problems. I am not criticizing the recipe at all. Like I said, it does have great flavor. Thank you internetnut for this recipe. I am going to try the other versions of this recipe.
