The top-selling menu item at Laurent Tourondel’s New York City restaurant, the Arlington Club, this butcher burger gets its name from the decadent short rib meat used to create the patty. Extra steps are necessary to create the caramelized onions and pepper-crusted bacon, but they’re worth it. — Laurent Tourondel

This recipe seems simple in nature, but when you look closer you’ll see there are extra steps taken to make sure that the classic Cheddar cheeseburger is treated well and tastes good. Tender shallots are cooked down and braised in white-wine vinegar to create a topping to a tender patty mixed with minced garlic. A little bit of mayonnaise and peppery arugula are all that are needed to complete this unassuming yet delicious burger. — Crave Cooking Light Cookbook

Mushroom Burgers with Fried Egg and Truffle Oil

We’ve heard of mushroom burgers as a vegetarian alternative, but had never thought of adding mushrooms to the beef of a burger. Cooking mushrooms with garlic, thyme, and red wine will make you feel as if you’re creating a luxurious French dish, but what results is a flavorful burger topped with a fried egg and a truffle, Parmigiano-Reggiano, and arugula mixture. Oh, and, the mayonnaise-mustard-ketchup condiment is not to be overlooked, either. — Crave Cooking Light Cookbook

There’s nothing better than tangy pickled jalapeños — except maybe a burger topped with them. This burger gets extra heat from the jalapeños mixed into the beef and the pepper jack cheese melted on top. Make the pickled jalapeños at least a day in advance for the best flavor. — Kristie Collado

Southwest Salsa Burger

This burger includes a tender sirloin patty made with shallots and spicy chili powder topped with all of the trimmings — and then some. We like to think of this as a beef burrito slammed inside a hamburger bun, with salsa, jalapeños, and Monterey Jack cheese. — Crave Cooking Light Cookbook
