Some good American beef burger recipes include cheese-stuffed burgers and poutine burgers covered with brown gravy, potatoes and cheese curds. Another good recipe that incorporates extra beef is the smashed Reuben burger.
The recipe for cheese-stuffed burgers includes 2 pounds of ground beef with salt and pepper to taste. Stuff the burger with crumbled bleu cheese, mozzarella cheese or pimento cheese. To make the burger, form the beef into balls. Then place a ball of cheese into the beef ball, and form it into a patty before cooking it to the desired temperature.
Poutine burgers require beef, potatoes, prepared brown gravy and cheese curds. The recipe also allows for optional onions. Prepare the burgers as desired, and then place the freshly fried potatoes and other toppings on top of it. Cut the potato into matchstick slices, and cook them in a cast-iron skillet with peanut or canola oil.
For the Reuben burger, simply add all of the ingredients for a Reuben, including sauerkraut, corned beef and Russian dressing on top of the burger. To make the Russian dressing, combine mayo, relish, sour cream, ketchup, horseradish and lemon juice together. To make the burger even more authentic, use a Jewish rye bread instead of traditional hamburger buns.
