Memorial Day is nearly here, and what could be better than celebrating this great American holiday by cooking up some burgers on the grill? Here are GrillGirl’s Top 5 burgers to make for Memorial Day:
On a holiday that exists to observe those who have died in active military service, it’s time to get patriotic. The Red, White, and Blue Burger blends the flavors of blue cheese, smoky mini red peppers, and bacon jam. Yes, bacon jam! Who knew life could be so sweet AND so savory at the same time? See the recipe here!
When one thinks of a burger, bison may not immediately come to mind, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a great choice for your Memorial Day cookout. Bison meat is leaner and more nutrient-dense than beef, and it tastes fantastic when combined with the savory and creamy ingredients on this particular burger. See the recipe here!
Want to spice things up this Memorial Day? This burger is the way to do it. Combining jalapeno with pimento cheese is a marriage of the American south and south of the border, and these flavors come together to pack quite the punch. See the recipe here!
Hawaii may have been the last star added to the American Flag, but that doesn’t mean a Hawaiian-style burger can’t be the star of the show on Memorial Day. This certainly isn’t your traditional American burger, but give it a try if you’re looking to make a splash! See the recipe here!
Another option from the island paradise of Hawaii! These sliders keep with the Hawaiian tradition of using pork, and the grilled pineapple slices make these sweet treats simply irresistible. See the recipe here!
