Burgers are rockin’ our grill this summer. We have been eating burgers of some kind at least 2-3 times a week just because they are so easy to do on weeknights. Since we are enjoying them so much, I decided to share with you 10 of the most appealing Gourmet Summer Burger Recipes from fellow blogging friends!

What makes a burger gourmet? Well, I believe it is a gourmet burger when it has a topping outside of the ordinary. Ok, then what is ordinary? I would say your basic, ketchup, mustard, pickles. When you add lettuce and tomato it becomes “deluxe”. So, with that said, let me share with you what I feel are some of the most mouthwatering Gourmet Burger Recipes on the Blogsphere!
