Bobby's Perfect Burger

This is Bobby's standard, go-to burger how-to. Perfectly melted cheese and toasted burger buns are of the utmost importance.

Tuna Burgers With Tapenade Aioli

Bobby transforms fresh tuna steaks into amazing, quick-cooking burgers.

Throwdown's Green Chile Cheeseburgers

Bobby starts out with a simple burger patty but layers on the flavor with homemade toppings: queso sauce, roasted peppers and pickled red onions.

Philly Burger

Bobby likes his Philly cheesesteaks with lots of pickled hot peppers, so he loads them on his Philly Burger, too.

Miami Burger

A traditional Cuban sandwich is the inspiration for this burger. Turning this Cuban specialty into an American one isn't hard — just replace the roasted pork with a good old hamburger.

Crunchburger (aka the Signature Burger)

This is the "house" burger at Bobby's Burger Palace. It's a basic burger (Bobby likes it garnished with red onion, tomato, lettuce, and horseradish mustard) with CRUNCH.

Dallas Burger

A spice rub gives this burger a serious kick.

Santa Fe Burger

This is one seriously delicious cheeseburger inspired by the flavors of the Southwest, personal favorites of Bobby's.

Arthur Avenue Burger

Arthur Avenue in the Bronx is where you'll find New York City's most authentic Southern Italian fare. This burger is Bobby's ode to that famous neighborhood.

L.A. Burger

Avocado is one of Bobby's favorite ingredients. He tops his L.A. Burger with Avocado Relish and, because L.A. doesn't do iceberg lettuce, peppery watercress.

Wild Mushroom-Cheddar Burger

This burger was inspired by a mushroom-foraging trip in Washington State. Bobby does not recommend hunting for your own mushrooms, but do search your supermarket for a good variety.

Cheyenne Burger

Bobby uses turkey meat for his Cheyenne Burger, and tops it with smoky bacon, sharp cheddar, onion rings and barbecue sauce.

Cedar Planked Burgers

Bobby says, "This recipe proves that cedar plank cooking is not just for salmon anymore. Cooking burgers over cedar planks creates amazing flavor, infusing every bite with smoky complexity. This is a fun and creative way to serve hamburgers at your next outdoor barbecue."

Bobby's Turkey Burgers

"I always like to offer a turkey burger at my outdoor barbecue for friends who no longer eat red meat," says Bobby. "Luckily poultry is a perfect canvas for many big flavors, and this combination of tart goat cheese, sweet Meyer lemon-honey and peppery arugula makes for one outstanding burger."

Louisiana Burger

Bobby rubs these burgers with a Louisiana-inspired spice rub for flavor, then tops with ham, extra cheese, a spicy mayo and crunchy potato chips.
