Miami Dolphins Cuban Burger

Miami Dolphins Cuban Burger

As I’m not going to actually cook a dolphin, the Cuban sandwich seemed like a great idea for my Miami inspired NFL burger. The Cuban is a beautiful art-like sandwich, made with tender, favorful cuts of pork....so, instead of a beef patty, I decided to grill off a ground pork burger, seasoned with...
Buffalo Bills Chicken Wing Burger

Buffalo Bills Chicken Wing Burger

For the Buffalo Bills the choice was pretty obvious, yes, you guessed it…a Buffalo Chicken Wing-style burger. In keeping with that flavor profile, I use ground chicken (turkey would work well too) instead of beef. I sear the burger with simple seasoning, and then drench it in wing sauce (see recipe...
Minnesota Vikings Juicy Lucy Burger

Minnesota Vikings Juicy Lucy Burger

I gotta say an idea for a Minnesota Vikings burger didn’t jump out at me immediately, and so I ended up doing a bit of research. It didn’t take long to find the Juicy Lucy – apparently a Minnesota tradition that’s morphed into dozens (perhaps hundreds) of variations. But the original was a stuffed...
Philadelphia Eagles Cheesesteak Burger

Philadelphia Eagles Cheesesteak Burger

It was pretty easy to invent an Eagles inspired burger – Philly is all about the cheese steak! I make mine with a thin beef patty, quickly seared on the stove top. Then, to fully capture that cheese steak vibe, I top it with sautéed onions and peppers, smother it in Cheese Whiz (Gotta use the real...
Arizona Cardinals Guacamole Burger

Arizona Cardinals Guacamole Burger

My burger for the Arizona Cardinals was another pretty easy choice. I love the flavors of the Southwest, and I bring them to bear in this burger. I start by fire roasting a Pasilla pepper (although you can use others), and then cleaning off the skin and seeds, leaving that slightly spicy, sweet...
Cincinnati Bengals Chili Burger

Cincinnati Bengals Chili Burger

There were quite a few viable options for my Cincinnati-style burger, but most of my research kept coming back to Cincinnati chili. So, let's go with it! For the Bengal’s burger I’m using a beef patty, which I grill to capture that smoky charred flavor. When cooked, rested, and placed on a bun, I...
NY Jets Reuben Burger

NY Jets Reuben Burger

Great Deli goes hand and hand with New York City, and for the Jets, I decided to reflect that with my Reuben Burger. I use a beef patty (make sure to shape it like the rye bread) which I make pretty thin and sear off in a pan. To reuben-ize it, I serve the burger on some toasted rye bread, and top...
San Diego Chargers California Burger

San Diego Chargers California Burger

Given there are 3 California NFL teams, I knew I’d end up making a “California Burger” at some point. The San Diego Chargers get the honor of the state’s namesake burger, if for no other reason, than it’s probably the healthiest burger on the menu, and given San Diego has beach weather 12 months a...
New York Giants Pizza Burger

New York Giants Pizza Burger

New York is among the top tier fine dining cities in the world...but honesting, when I think NY food, I quickly go to the New York Pizza slice. And how can you go wrong w/ anything pizza related; so that’s where I took my NY Giants burgers. To get as many pizza toppings in as I good, I mixed some...
Houston Texans Queso Frito Burger

Houston Texans Queso Frito Burger

Once I saw that Fritos got their start in Houston, the direction for my Texans inspired burger was pretty well set. The burger itself is a straight forward beef patty, seared off on the stove (although the grill would be great too). But of course, we're not going to stop there. The real action...
New England Patriots Thanksgiving Burger

New England Patriots Thanksgiving Burger

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...
Carolina Panthers Pork Belly Burger

Carolina Panthers Pork Belly Burger

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...
