Mushroom-Beef Burger: "They are incredibly tasty, moist, and delicious, and although they are lighter than regular burgers they still seem meaty! Even my super-carnivore husband liked them a lot, and I think I actually prefer these to traditional burgers -- and they didn't leave me feeling so full and bloated!"

Simple, Perfect Fresh-Ground Brisket Burgers: "These were ridiculously tender and delicious. A purist's burger. Be sure to chill your grinder and meat beforehand - it makes a huge difference."

Grilled Lemon-Basil Tofu Burger"This was the first recipe I ever tried with tofu... I was more than pleasantly surprised by the results! The flavor, texture, ease of this burger were all fabulous! Even my husband (who's very much into his evening protein) went back for a second burger."

Bruschetta Burgers: "I have always loved bruschetta. I like a good burger too. This is just the perfect combination of the two. I will definitely be adding this to the menu again in the future."

SoCal Guacamole Burger: "Easy, quick, delicious! I appreciate that the burger part of this recipe is very simple, but the guac was a really good addition, and when put together it was very delicious! It's on the 'make again' list."
