Backyard burgers are one of the things that make summer great. But, everybody needs variety, so here are five super recipes you can add to your rotation.

Grilled Inside-Out Southwestern Cheeseburgers- Serves 4

You'll need:

Prepare as follows:

Heat gas or charcoal grill. In medium bowl, mix beef, onion and chiles. Shape mixture into 8 thin patties. Top each of 4 patties with 2 slices cheese. Place remaining beef patties on top; pinch edges to seal securely. Place patties on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 14-16 minutes, turning once, until burgers are slightly firm when pressed in center. Add rolls, cut sides down, for last 4 minutes of grilling or until toasted. Serve burgers on rolls with taco sauce.

Zesty Burgers- For 4

This is one of the many great recipes I encountered at http://southernfood.about.com.

1 to 1 1/4 pounds of lean ground beef 1/4 cup of chopped onion 2 tablespoons of finely chopped green pepper 3 tablespoons ketchup 1 tablespoon prepared horseradish 1 teaspoon salt 2 teaspoons of prepared mustard 1 dash pepper assorted toppings 4 toasted buns, split

Preparation:

Combine the ground beef with onion, green pepper, ketchup, horseradish, salt, mustard, and pepper. Mix together lightly. Shape the mixture into 4 patties about a half inch thick. Cook for 5-7 minutes per side, depending on how well done you like your burgers. Serve, with topping, on buns.

Texas Stuffed Grilled Burgers- Five Servings

I found this mouth watering recipe at allrecipes.com.

Required ingredients:

5 pounds of (lean) ground beef 6 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce 2 teaspoons hickory seasoning (suggestedl) salt & pepper to taste 2 cups of chopped onion 2 cups chopped fresh mushrooms 2 cups chopped cooked ham 3 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

Preparation directions:

Preheat your grill for high heat. When hot, oil the grate lightly. In an appropriately sized bowl, mix the ground beef, Worcestershire sauce, hickory seasoning, salt and pepper until everything well blended together. Hand shape between 8 and 10 balls, and then flatten them into patties for grilling. On half of the patties (4-5), distribute the onions, the mushrooms, the chopped ham and the cheddar cheese. Cover the piles with the remaining patties, making certain to enclose the filling and to tightly seal the patties together. Grill the 4-5 patties for somewhere between 8 and 10 minutes on each side, or until the cheese in the middle has melted and the burger is well done.
