Go on a burger road trip in your own backyard. Grill the patties and load them sky-high. Peanut butter and bacon make them southern style; coleslaw and tomatoes, a northern version. —Susan Mahaney, New Hartford, New York
Cheddar cheese and Thousand Island dressing make this moist and juicy burger from Dave Bremson of Plantation, Florida a real family treat. The amount of flavor this burger packs with just a few simple ingredients will really surprise you.
My family loves these spruced-up hamburgers all year long. Bacon gives extra flavor to the meat and adds a pleasing twist. The patties are equally good with or without the bun. —Jody Bahler, Wolcott, Indiana
My grandmother passed this recipe down to my mom, and it's a gem. The tasty sauce makes the beef and carrots so tender, and it's made with many ingredients you'll already have on hand. You won't want to eat pot roast any other way! —Krista Smith Kliebenstein, Broomfield, Colorado
When I make these juicy steaks, I brush thin slices of potato with olive oil and grill them alongside the meat. I round out the meal with a spinach and red onion salad on the side and cheesecake for dessert.
