(NC) - If your regular burger recipe seems a little been-there-done-that, try these new approaches from Lipton Onion Recipe Soup. They'll put some sizzle in your summer!

Break New Ground

Build A Bolder Burger
Beef is classic, but some other great grinds include:

  • chicken or turkey

  • pork, lamb or veal

  • fresh tuna or salmon

Mix and match

Stir any of these zesty mix-ins into your burger mixture:

  • chopped green onions

  • minced jalapeņos

  • chopped green or black olives

  • minced sun-dried tomatoes

  • a sprinkling of fresh herbs

Stuff It

Create a well in the burger patty, stuff with cheese, seal the meat and cook these cheesy combinations:

  • goat cheese & minced roasted red peppers

  • mozzarella & basil

  • cheddar cheese & diced bacon

  • Swiss & sauteed sliced mushrooms

Get Creative With Toppings

Challenge ketchup's reign over your burger by topping your burger off with one of these:

  • pesto

  • grilled pineapple slice

  • guacamole & salsa

  • horseradish sauce

  • sauerkraut

Choose A Better Bun

Choose a flavourful sturdy bread, brush with a little olive oil and toss on the grill at the last minute. A few to try:

  • Focaccia

  • Ciabatta buns

  • Sourdough rolls

  • Olive bread

  • Pita pockets
