11 Unique Burger Recipes

I was tooling around the internet today, and stumbled across this plethera of burger recipes.  Some of them look really amazing, and I was also encouraged by the "burgers" made from other ingredients that still look appetizing.  Beef is incredibly expensive these days, and I'm sure we are all looking for ways to soften the blow to our bank accounts, so I thought I would share!

Does your family have any fabulous burger recipes that you would be willing to share?

I am really looking forward to trying this one.  It looks fabulous!!!

Flavored with fresh ginger, cilantro, green onions, and sesame oil, these juicy burgers end up tasting like a spicy Asian meatball.
