The Most Pinned Burger of All Time, Plus 15 More for Your 4th of July Party

Imagine there’s a steady stream of burger sauce running down your chin and you have an ice-cold drink in your hand — are you drooling yet? National Burger Day has come and gone, but now it’s the Fourth of July — a kind of unofficial Burger Day. If you’re hosting the big shindig this year, unique gourmet burgers are a must. Whether you prefer a charcoal grill, a cast iron skillet or a state-of-the-art gas appliance, the following 16 loaded burgers will be a perfect fit. After you finish making a red, white and blue recipe or two, tie on your favorite DIY apron and arm yourself with your best spatula, because your Independence Day is about to get juicy.

1. Thai Chicken Burger: Burgers don’t have to be beefy. These chicken burgers are still full of flavor but are incredibly lean. Set out toppings like homemade pickled cucumbers and red onion with various greens so guests can dress them as they please. (via Not Quite Nigella)

2. Bacon + Cheese Corned Beef Burger With Guinness Caramelized Onions and a Fried Egg: On the other hand, you could always just use ALL the beef in your burger. This big boy boasts ground beef and crispy corned beef on top. Adding salty bacon and a gooey fried egg really makes this burger food porn ready. (via Closet Cooking)

3. Classic Bacon Cheeseburger: On the most American day of the year, it might be in your best interest to go classic. A few slices of bacon, American cheese and good quality beef make for a burger that everyone will love. (via Simply Delicious)

4. Bourbon Basted Cheeseburgers: No Independence Day shindig is complete without a cocktail, so why not add some bourbon to your burger creation? Get your bib ready, because this masterpiece is finger-lickin’ good. (via Simply Delicious)

5. Blue Cheese Burgers on Light Brioche Buns With Crispy Pancetta and Onion Chutney: Just because you’re throwing a backyard barbecue doesn’t mean you can’t serve restaurant-quality burgers. Go above and beyond and make these airy brioche buns that will have your guests raving for weeks. (via Supergolden Bakes)

6. Crispy Chicken, Mozzarella and Avocado Burgers With Lemon Mayo: There are always those people at a party that refuse to eat any protein other than chicken (you know who you are). Serve something for everyone by frying up some crispy chicken that will keep everyone full and happy. (via Simply Delicious)

7. Drunken Aussie Beef Burgers: If you’ve never had caramelized pineapple on your burger, you’ve been seriously missing out. Take a trip down under by topping your sandwich with sweet beetroot and fried onions as well. YUM. (via Cafe Delights)

8. Filthy Burgers: Get this. These burgers have pork shoulder and bacon mixed into the ground beef. Is your mind blown? Good. (via Foodie With Family)

9. Fried Mozzarella and Caramelized Peach Caprese Burger: Fresh peaches are at their peak this time of year, and you don’t have to reserve them all for pie. Slice a few and grill them before throwin’ on those burgers for a sweet and charred topping that’s perfect alongside fried mozzarella. (via Half Baked Harvest)

10. Jameson Whiskey Blue Cheese Burger With Guinness Cheese Sauce and Crispy Onions: Placing a slice of cheddar on top of your burger is tasty enough, but smothering it in Guinness cheese topping is absolutely next level. Pour on a layer of BBQ sauce and drift off into a creamy sauce-laden food coma. (via Half Baked Harvest)

11. Korean BBQ Burger With Kimchi Slaw: Crunchy kimchi slaw gives this burger a toothsome texture that can’t be beat. When coupled with an insane Korean BBQ sauce, the flavor is something even burger purists will appreciate. (via The Cozy Apron)

12. Smoky Chipotle Cheddar Burgers With Mexican Street Corn Fritters: These Mexican-style burgers are the ultimate accompaniment to a frozen margarita. The crispy corn fritters are so addictive, they may never actually make it on the burger. Don’t say we didn’t warn you! (via Half Baked Harvest)

13. Stuffed Jalapeño Popper Bacon Cheeseburger With Avocado Ranch Dressing: These burgers should come with a warning label. The inside is a mound of creamy and spicy jalapeño popper filling that will wow its consumer with the first mouthful. (via Shared Appetite)

14. Swiss Pan Burgers With Rosemary Mushroom Pan Sauce: If you’re cooking indoors this Fourth of July, these burgers are the perfect opportunity to break out your cast iron pan. Using the pan drippings to make the mushroom rosemary sauce ensures rich and full-bodied flavor in every bite. (via Iowa Girl Eats)

15. Lamb + Feta Burger With Mint Pesto + Yogurt: These fresh lamb burgers are wonderful if your Independence Day crew is small and full of foodies. Garnish with ribbons of crisp cucumber and watercress for a next-level culinary experience. (via The Pretty Blog)
