I grew up in the Northeast. For a number of reasons, I associate New England with Thanksgiving. So I tried to incorporate as many of those flavors as I could into my Patriots burger. For this burger, the patty is made of ground turkey, which I jass up with several traditional Thanksgiving stuffing ingredients.

The Panthers are inspiration for another BBQ burger, but this one focused on the pig - a stable of Carolina BBQ. To work that most wonderful of animals in there, instead of using traditional bacon, I bought some pork belly, which I sliced thick and slowly braised until tender, juicy and so sooo yummy. Then I seared it off on the grill along with the beef patty burger.

Leave it to New Orleans to come up with the coolest name for the sub sandwich! My Saints inspired burger is just that – a sub sandwich - or a Po Boy. I seared off a beef patty that I cover with Cajun spice for an extra kick.

I love Texas BBQ Brisket, and I just knew that one of the Texas NFL teams was going to get the Brisket Burger. The Cowboys drew the lucky card, so I drew my inspiration from the Cowboys. This burger is made of ground horse meat.

I don’t know a ton about Green Bay, but with just a bit of research, I found beer, brats, and cheddar cheese to be a common theme. For my Packers burger, I use all three. I simmer some brats in beer and onions, then sliced them thin to use as I normally would use bacon.

After toying with a few "mile high" ingredients for my Denver Bronco's burger, I found a way to work in the best of the Denver omelet ingredients...and yes, it is a damn tall burger.

Now technically, I guess this isn't a burger, as it's not ground meat, but I gave it try, found the fried pork sando to be absolutely awesome, and frankly didn’t change much. I'm hoping the Colts fans forgive my bit of cheating.

I'm sure just about every Pittsburgh native knows Primanti Brothers, the sandwich chain famous in Pittsburgh since 1933. The chain is known as a sandwich shop where fries and cole slaw become part of the sandwich, instead of being served on the side.

It was actually pretty easy to come up with "DA BEARS" burger. The Chicago Dog, a hot dog garnished with just about everything but the kitchen sink, is already world famous...and it's pretty easy to make a hot dog shaped burger.

I credit my wife, who spent time in Jacksonville, for the Jaguars Biscuits and Gravy Burger. Jacksonville is home to some great Southern cooking, which is exactly what I tried to create in this beef and sausage burger, served on a fresh baked buttermilk biscuit, with pan-cooked sausage gravy.
Ground Beef, some call it Hamburger meat, is one of the most common ingredients in the American kitchen, and epitomized but the most American of all foods...the Burger. I cook with ground beef at least one a week in some form or fashion, and love the versitility of it. Here are my favorite dishes featuring ground beef as the main ingredient. Enjoy them!
