Beyond Basic Burgers - 4 Different Burgers

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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Mix 1 pound lean meat, add-ins and 2 tablespoons of the Kraft barbecue sauce. Shape into 4 patties.
  2. Grill 7-9 minutes on each side or until cooked through, brushing with remaining 2 tablespoons Kraft barbecue sauce during last 2 minutes of grilling time.
  3. Place on patties on buns.
  4. Note: For a further flavor kick, try a Kraft singles slice with the pork or beef burgers and cranberry sauce with the turkey burger.

*** 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.

I made both the turkey and pork versions for Variety is the Spice of Life Event 2014. That is THE BEST turkey burger I've EVER hasd which will make my heart healthy mom very happy! BUT it was a bit too wet. I would leave the water out altogether. (I used fresh ground turkey). On the other hand, the pork burger was dry & dense but still delicious. I would add some water to that recipe. 1lb meat for each recipe made for burgers of each flavor which fed my family of 4 perfectly. :) Thank you!!

These were really tasty. I did the beef version but used Edam instead of Moz (it was what I had). Used half the amount of breadcrumbs (fresh, but dried overnight). Made a mistake and didn't notice the bbq sauce amt was to be divided so my burgers were a little soft but since I cooked them in a non-stick skillet inside (don't have a grill) they were ok, though got pretty blackened from the sugar in the sauce. Served with American cheese slices, a little extra bbq sauce, and homemade dill pickled onions. Thanks for sharing! [Made for Variety is the Spice of Life 2014]
