8 Homemade Hamburgers To Make This Summer

Is there any food that screams summer more than traditional homemade hamburgers? We think not. But here at Plated, we’re anything but traditional. Take your cookout beyond simple hamburger patties, fire up the grill, and get ready to dig into these burgers. Whether you’re in the mood for something classic, cheese-stuffed, or even meatless, we’ve got homemade hamburgers in our repertoire for you!

White Cheddar Cheese Burgers

Perhaps the most traditional of the bunch, our White Cheddar Cheese Burger takes your summer burger and fries routine to the next level with a few cheffy tweaks. Fries are swapped for paprika-dusted potato chips and beef patties get topped with melty white Cheddar and sweet caramelized onions. Leave the grocery shopping to us and add this dish to your box today!

Burgers au Poivre

We love to reimagine classic, elegant dishes, and find new ways to cook, serve, and eat our favorites. Here, we flip steak au poivre—peppercorn-crusted steaks in a sherry-cream sauce—into burger form. Homemade hamburgers are slathered in a cracked black pepper and Dijon sauce and served with perfectly crispy truffle fries because fries are always a good idea.

Feta-Stuffed Burgers

Being a cheese lover is basically a requirement at Plated. In this recipe, your average homemade hamburgers go Greek with a stuffing of feta and a dollop of dill-yogurt sauce. Round out the dish with a bright cucumber and tomato salad, complete with quick-pickled shallots and an extra toasty bun.

Pimiento Cheeseburger Sliders

These cheeseburger sliders are perfect for summer entertaining—ready in just 30 minutes and easy to pass around as a bite-sized appetizer. The star of the show is our popular pimiento cheese—the Southern spread we make with chipotle mayo and roasted red peppers. Inspired by the pairing of soft pretzels and Cheddar, these homemade hamburgers are sandwiched between toasted pretzel buns.

Turkey Spinach Burgers

Burger doesn’t always have to mean beef! Straight out of the Plated cookbook, this recipe elevates turkey burgers with just a few simple mix-ins. These turkey burger patties are juicy, flavorful, and impossibly tender, thanks to the addition of scallion, spinach, and cumin. A garlicky aioli and cayenne-spiced carrot fries make this dish a delicious rendition on burger and fries.

Crispy Mushroom Burger

Veggie lovers, we’ve got a recipe for you. It’s not very often that a meat-free burger stops us in our tracks, but this mushroom version did just that. Chopped mushrooms take on patty form with Parmesan, herbs, and a crispy breadcrumb coating. This flavorful patty (that won’t fall apart on the bun!) gets a few cheffy burger toppers with melted white Cheddar and a pesto-spiked avocado spread that’s sure to have you running back for more.

Salmon Burgers

If meat (or mushroom) burgers aren’t your thing, give our salmon burgers a spin. The patty combines salmon with horseradish, scallion, capers, and Dijon for a tangy flavor that compliments the richness of the fish. Topped with a creamy chive aioli, this winning recipe is definitely one to try out this summer.
