Rachael Ray's Summer Burger Recipes
Burgers are one of my favorite things to eat: They're causal, comfortable and infinitely customizable! Check out my summer Burgers of the Month from the past few years.
Burgers with Red, White & Blue Special Sauce, Bacon, Tomato & Onion
"My husband, John, makes a spritzer called the Red, White and Blue—and this is my burger version! Sure it's great for the Fourth, but it's equally tasty all season long."
Two-Cheese Bacon Burger with Creamy Caramelized Onion Sauce
"With this burger, more is more. It's a mash-up of a cheeseburger and French onion dip—with bacon for good measure. Yes!"

Chorizo Burgers with Sweet Corn Guacamole
"In late summer, the corn is so sweet you can eat it raw! Here, the crunchy kernels help cool down the spicy chorizo in the burger and the jalapeños in the guac."

"The secret to these extra-rich burgers is mixing red wine into the meat—then taking things up a notch with some caramelized onions and melted cheese on top. It's a sophisticated take on the classic that makes for a great dinner with friends!"

Panko-Crusted Fishwiches with Wasabi Tartar Sauce
"Why should ground beef have all the fun on a bun? These Asian-inspired fried fish sandwiches are piled high with crunchy summertime toppings, like sliced cukes, cabbage and radishes—and sure to reel in lots of fans at your table!"

Spicy Chicken-Fried Hamburgers
"Chicken-fried burgers are a very guilty pleasure! But if I'm going to go there, I want a flavorful coating, not just a mound of flour. Summer is a good time to try this recipe. Since we all tend to be more active, we'll be able to exercise these babies off!"

Asian-Style Salmon Burger BLTs
"My goal this month was to create a salmon-based burger as satisfying as a bacon cheeseburger or a triple-decker burger with special sauce. It has good-for-you omega-3s and is also decadent and decidedly delicious."
