Serving up one patty of brain-building food on a bun! Put a piece of salmon on your lil one's plate, and watch how quickly he'll turn up his nose. Form it into a patty and serve it on a bun, and you just might have a new fish lover on your hands. As we make our way through National Burger Month, I turned to Jessica Seinfeld, the queen of purees, for her take on a healthy patty. Combining omega-3, fatty-acid-rich salmon with some sweet pureed carrots and hoisin sauce, the Do It Delicious chef and blogger created a burger that packs in the veggies along with the fish. Be prepared for finicky eaters to be won over instantly!
Fire up the grill – it's National Burger Month! This staple of the American diet becomes even more popular as Memorial Day approaches and families head outdoors for barbecues and family gatherings. Kids, in particular, love the idea of a handheld food that they can bite right into! We asked kiddie chef extraordinaire Catherine McCord, founder of Weelicious and mother of two, to share some of her mouthwatering, kid-friendly, burger recipes with us. Check out five that satisfy both grownups and tots alike!
One of my top contenders of all time has to go to a high-end restaurant in San Francisco called Spruce. Yes, it's a froufrou cloth napkin burger that'll run you $16, but I've never had better: house-ground Niman ranch beef, served with melted havarti cheese, homemade zucchini, and red onion pickles, lettuce, tomato, and herb-caper aioli on a buttered English muffin that's baked from scratch. Oh, and a side of duck fat fries.
What's the hands-down best burger you've ever had — and what was in it?
Each of the four new Charbroiled Turkey Burgers will clock in at under 500 calories — as opposed to, say, Carl's Jr.'s Double Six Dollar Burger, which tallies up to be 1,522 calories and 110 grams of fat. What's more, the product launch will include a marketing campaign with Men's Health magazine and the bestselling book series Eat This, Not That — as well as advertisements featuring the former Miss Turkey in a bikini.
It would seem there's no such thing as moderation in fast food. These days, it's either all (see: the KFC Double Down and BK Stuffed Steakhouse) or next to nothing (Subway's low-fat egg white breakfast sandwiches). Do you agree?
The new offering — which also comes wrapped in a tortilla as a Snack Wrap — has a proprietary chipotle BBQ sauce. Did the smoky spiciness that chipotle is known for bring a new dimension to the Angus Third Pounder? Slashfood was on a mission to find out. For the verdict, read the full story at Slashfood.
"In it. Not on it" will be the chain's slogan for the new product, which is "flavored from the inside out" with beef stuffed with bits of jalapeño peppers and cheddar cheese. The hamburger, priced at $3.99, will be topped off with a cream-based poblano sauce, tomatoes, and lettuce.
Sounds like the No. 2 fast-food chain might be giving burger leader McDonald's a run for its money. Will you give this new item a go?
This year we created a special series of kid-friendly sliders aimed at enticing little ones for seconds (or, at the very least, finishing firsts!).

While out at dinner the other night, my dining companions and I found ourselves debating the perfect beverage to complement a juicy burger. My tablemates ordered glasses of Pinot with their Niman Ranch burgers, but I opted for a cold amber ale. I actually happen to love wine with my burgers, but that evening beer sounded more refreshing. What do you usually choose?

Whether you prefer In-N-Out or Five Guys, there's no denying that this photo of a burger that marzbars took is scrumptious-looking. When we came across it in the Savory Sights group, we couldn't help but moan a Homer Simpson-like "mmmm."
