Some good recipes for grilled hamburgers include Bobby Flay's perfect burger, cheese-stuffed burgers and barbecued burgers. Some good, healthy grilled hamburger recipes are Greek-style burgers with feta aioli and Korean barbecue burgers.

Make Bobby Flay's perfect burger by forming 1 1/2 pounds of 80 percent lean ground chuck into four patties, making sure that the center of the burger has a slight depression and the meat is only loosely compacted. Sprinkle salt and pepper on both sides before grilling on high heat for 3 to 4 minutes on both sides. Spice up the burger by folding a piece or cube of cheese in the center of the meat. Some cheese options include blue cheese, pimiento cheese and mozzarella.

Another good grill hamburger recipe is barbecued burgers. First make the barbecue sauce by adding 1 cup of ketchup, 1/2 cup packed brown sugar, 1/3 cup sugar, 1/4 cup honey and 1/4 cup of molasses into a saucepan. Stir in 2 teaspoons prepared mustard, 1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/8 teaspoon pepper and 1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke, and heat to a boil. Remove the sauce from the heat, and pour 1/4 cup of it into a bowl along with 1 egg and 1/3 cup quick-cooking oats. Season with 1/4 teaspoon onion salt, 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Fold in 1 1/2 pounds of ground beef, and form into 6 patties. Grill on medium heat for 6 minutes on each side.

Some other grilling recipes for hamburgers include Bacon, Onion and Cheese Stuffed Burgers and Yellow Pepper and Fat Doug Burger. To make Bacon, Onion and Cheese Stuffed Burgers, form 1 1/2 pounds of ground beef, 1 minced garlic clove, 1 teaspoon of hot sauce, and salt and pepper. Fry bacon until it's crispy, and then saute 1/2 onion in the bacon fat before combining the ingredients with cheese and stuffing them into the patties. Grill the hamburgers at medium-high heat.

To make Fat Doug Burgers, combine and form 8 ounces of ground sirloin, 8 ounces of ground brisket and 8 ounces of ground boneless short rib into four patties. Season them with salt to taste, and grill them at high heat for at least three minutes on each side.

Meanwhile, toss 3/4 head of shredded napa cabbage with 3 tablespoons of champagne vinegar, 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard, 1 tablespoon of spicy mustard and 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce. Mix in 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt, 1 sliced garlic clove, 1 sliced jalapeno pepper and 1/2 sliced red onion. After refrigerating the coleslaw for an hour, serve it, pastrami slices and Swiss cheese slices on top of the burgers on brioche buns.
