Caramel Infused Apple Cheddar Chicken Burgers

You think you’ve seen it all when it comes to burgers?!  HA!  I’m about to blow your mind and rock your taste buds with this Caramel Infused Apple Cheddar Chicken Burger. It has Caramel Creams® caramel sauce IN THE BURGER (and on top!). Prepare for deliciousness!

This post is being sponsored by Goetze’s Candy Company featuring their Caramel Creams® candies (which are seriously one of the best candies on the face of the planet!).  All opinions of these ABSOLUTELY AMAZING candies are mine.

OMG guys do I have a life-changing burger for you today. Yeah I know, another burger recipe. There are 4 trillion recipes out there but this one, this one here folks is ridiculous. This one here is a game changer. This burger just showed up to your cookout, kicked everything off the grill and said: “No, I’M THE KING OF BURGERS now beat it punk!” Yah, it’s THAT GOOD!  So let me dish for a few about this burger – it has candy IN THE BURGER. Yes, you read that right…

Caramel Creams®. In. The. Burger

Just let that soak in for a second. I took one of my absolute favorite candies and put it in a burger. I know, only I would push candy and burgers to a limit like that. You’re welcome. When I tell you this is honestly my all time favorite burger, believe it. It’s super juicy, savory and sweet and full of flavors.

Carmel Infused Apple Cheddar Chicken Burgers made with Caramel Creams®

So how did this all come about?  About 6 months ago when I was work, one of my co-workers asked if I wanted to talk a walk and get a snack from our little luncheon room. From the vending machine, he ended up getting a package of Caramel Creams®. As he opened the package I smiled as these candies were my Dad’s favorite. My friend offered me one as we walked back to our desks. As I unwrapped mine and popped it in my mouth something happened as I kind of zoned out for a bit. You see that little candy brought back so many childhood memories I shared with my Dad.

Elevate your burger game to a whole new level of deliciousness!

Veggie Sweet Potato Garden Burgers

Whether you’re a veggie-loving beast or full on meat-craving carnivore these Veggie Sweet Potato Garden Burgers will definitely please! Meatless Monday never tasted so delicious!

Veggie burgers are not a ‘new’ thing yet in the past 3 or so years they’ve become a menu regular. Heck, there are some restaurants that only serve veggie burgers. It’s funny how I actually more often will order a veggie burger than a regular burger these days. I’m not a vegetarian and still love meat but there’s just something intriguing about these things. You wouldn’t expect a veggie burger to be juicy or packed with so much flavor yet they are.

I mean just look at my Chunky Portabello veggie burger. That single burger recipe has bridged the gap between salad heads and meat beasts; both teams love them. Vegetarians absolutely love the fact that you have a burger that is hearty, packed with a bajillion veggies and that is seriously the “best damn veggie burger” out there. And meat lovers…don’t get me started!  Their minds are blown by the fact that they are eating a burger that tastes so much like beef (or a real burger as they’d say) but is made with all veggies. I mean I had some guy argue til he was blue in the face that there was no way anyone could make a veggie burger taste delicious let alone tastes like a ‘real burger’. One bite and I shut him up.

Now before I go any further I should disclose that there is one person that doesn’t like this – Mr. Fantabulous. He doesn’t quite “get” the whole non-meat thing and swears if I try to turn him vegetarian he’s moving out.  For him, honestly, it’s a textural thing I thing as most veggie burgers are a tad more ‘creamy’ in the center. Sure you’ll have chunks of veggies but you never get that same texture as you would with meat. Challenge for me? Perhaps but honestly it’s not that big of a deal and hey if he doesn’t like it, it’s just more for me.

Get your deliciousness on!

Zucchini Ricotta Veggie Burgers

Veggies burger are part of the “norm” and rightly so.  They are delicious, hearty and can stack up to your traditional burgers.  These Zucchini Ricotta Veggie burgers are juicy, hearty and perfect for you meat-free meals!

Are you a burger purist?  Do you insist that a burger is comprised of beef and nothing else?  Do you scoff at the thought of a chicken or turkey burger?  Does the mention of a veggie burger make you shudder in pure disdain? Well this post isn’t for you. However I think you’re a fool to skip past this post and recipe.  I kid you not; you’re seriously missing out on something truly incredible and delicious.  Be a rebel here. Be like those folks that decided to try salted caramel or candied bacon.

It’s funny as growing up veggies were my nemesis.  I would turn my nose up at the thought of eating zucchini.  I was all about the beef (’bout that beef, ’bout that beef.. sorry was channeling Meghan Trainor there for a minute). I was one of those burger snobs.  Burgers had to beef and nothing else.
Be a Burger Rebel and make these delicious burgers!

Southwest Turkey Burgers with Roasted Tomatillo Salsa Verde

As I get older I find myself becoming less and less of a ‘beef’ eater and leaning more towards turkey/fish or veggies.  Don’t get me wrong – I LOVE me one fat juicy burger, a slab of ribs, bacon… well I’ll never divorce bacon but sadly beef doesn’t always agree with my stomach.  But if you’ve ever cooked with ground turkey, due to the low fat content, it can dry out rather fast. Now the best/healthiest ground turkey to buy is the one that is all ground white meat but again it can be dry so what I found is a healthy balance of 80% ground white turkey and 20% ground dark turkey meat.  The dark meat is where you truly get that rich full-bodied flavor and since it’s such a low fat content I don’t have to worry too much.  Plus you know me, everything in moderation.  So when I bought 5 pounds of my ground turkey mixture I knew I had to make me some mean burgers with it.  Since I had just made a batch of my awesome Roasted Tomatillo Salsa Verde I opted to go with a Southwestern flare.  So today you’re getting my Southwest Turkey Burgers with Roasted Tomatillo Salsa Verde recipe which seriously I ate every single day for a week and never once got tired of them because they are THAT amazing and you need to make these TODAY.  Yes that was a run on sentence.  Yes, it was intentional.  lol

South West Turkey Burger2

It’s funny how turkey or chicken burgers, which once were the hottest new thing in food, are now part of the norm like ‘regular’ burgers.  Growing up we had beef burgers, maybe deer (gag – sorry but I grew up in a family that hunted and I hate venison) and turkey was meant for holidays only. There was no thought of ever grinding turkey meat up as a burger but who ever thought of it.. GENIUS!
Know what else is genius? THIS BURGER! Seriously, it’s one of my top 5 favorite!

Lord Have Mercy Triple B Burgers

I have no words for this burger. Literally this burger left me speechless and if you’re anyone that knows me, you know that’s virtually impossible.  There is burgers and then there is THIS.  This burger is in a class all by itself.  It’s beyond elite; beyond epic.  It’s.. it’s… well it’s whatever that word is beyond epic. See!  Even know I am at a loss for words!

That just never happens.  I always have something to say but this… this glorious, absolutely incredible, amazingly delicious, #innerfatkid drooling burger paralyzed my ability to put thoughts into words.  Heck I don’t think I was even able to produce actual thoughts other than “Mmmm”. This burger will make you cuss and say words that your Mama would wash your mouth out with but you wouldn’t care because IT IS THAT GOOD!

Lord Have Mercy Burgers4

Originally when I was working on the concept of these burgers I knew I wanted to use bacon in the burgers.  I even thought of calling them the 50/50 burger but that all went to pot once I started to assemble this beast.  Okay so let me backtrack how this thing came to life.  It was a Sunday morning and I was at my butcher’s shop grabbing some fresh ground pork so I could make my own breakfast sausage.  When I spied their homemade applewood smoked thick cut bacon.  Now normally I’m not a huge fan of the thick cut as when most places make it, it’s charred on the outside but still chewy on the inside.  However there is a secret to cooking thick cut bacon at home and getting it perfect each and every time.

You will never want any other burger after eating this!
