Nothing is better than a good burger cooked on an open grill. Here are five recipes that can help you produce burgers that will delight your friends and family.

Grilled Inside-Out Southwestern Cheeseburgers- Serves 4

The ingredients you'll need to make these burgers:

1 and 1/2 pound of lean ground beef 2 tablespoons of (finely) chopped onions 2 tablespoons of drained Old El Paso chopped green chiles 8 slices of pepper Jack cheese, 2x1x1/4 inch (approximately 4 oz) 4 kaiser rolls 1/4 cup Old El Paso taco sauce or Old El Paso Thick 'n Chunky salsa

To prepare:

1. Heat gas or charcoal grill. In medium bowl, mix beef, onion and chiles. Shape mixture into 8 thin patties. Top each of 4 patties with 2 slices cheese. Place remaining beef patties on top; pinch edges to seal securely. 2. Place patties on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 14 to 16 minutes, turning once, until burgers are slightly firm when pressed in center. Add rolls, cut sides down, for last 4 minutes of grilling or until toasted. Serve patties on rolls with taco sauce.

Zesty Burgers- For 4

This is one of the many great recipes I encountered at

The ingredients are:

1 to 1 1/4 pounds of lean ground beef 1/4 cup of chopped onion 2 tablespoons of green pepper, finely chopped 3 tablespoons ketchup 1 tablespoon of prepared horseradish 1 teaspoon of salt 2 teaspoons of prepared mustard 1 dash of pepper your favorite burger toppings 4 split buns, toasted


Combine the ground beef with onion, green pepper, ketchup, horseradish, salt, mustard, and pepper. Mix together lightly. Shape the mixture into 4 patties about a half inch thick. Cook for 5-7 minutes per side, depending on how well done you like your burgers. Serve, with topping, on buns.

Texas Stuffed Grilled Burgers- Serves 5

I find this wonderful recipe at, a site worth visiting.

Get together:

5 pounds of lean ground beef 6 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce 2 teaspoons hickory seasoning (optional) salt and pepper to your taste 2 cups of onion, chopped 2 cups of fresh, chopped 2 cups of cooked ham, chopped 3 cups of shredded cheddar cheese

Preparation directions:

Preheat your grill for high heat. When hot, oil the grate lightly. In an appropriately sized bowl, mix the ground beef, Worcestershire sauce, hickory seasoning, salt and pepper until everything well blended together. Hand shape between 8 and 10 balls, and then flatten them into patties for grilling. On half of the patties (4-5), distribute the onions, the mushrooms, the chopped ham and the cheddar cheese. Cover the piles with the remaining patties, making certain to enclose the filling and to tightly seal the patties together. Grill the 4-5 patties for somewhere between 8 and 10 minutes on each side, or until the cheese in the middle has melted and the burger is well done.
