Red Velvet Cake

Perfect Burger

To make Bobby's perfect burger, start with 80 percent lean ground chuck seasoned with only salt and pepper. Remember to always melt the cheese during the last minute of cooking, and make sure to toast the bun.

Salmon with Brown Sugar and Mustard Glaze

Kick up the flavor of grilled salmon by brushing on a little of Bobby's sweet and savory glaze.

German Potato Salad

Bobby's tip for making great potato salad is to cut up and dress the potatoes while they're still warm, so the dressing soaks into the potatoes. The warm bacon dressing on this German Potato Salad is a sure crowd-pleaser.

Turkey Burgers

Bobby adds some big flavors to his turkey burgers by topping them with goat cheese, lemon-honey mustard and watercress.

Sliders with Chipotle Mayonnaise

Vegetable Meatloaf with Balsamic Glaze

Classic meatloaf is lightened up with the addition of finely diced vegetables in the lean ground turkey meat.

Mesa Grill's Southwestern Potato Salad

Bobby kicks up this creamy potato salad with bold flavors, like lime juice, chipotle peppers, cilantro and cayenne pepper. Make sure to dress the potatoes while they're warm, so all the dressing soaks in.

Thanksgiving Pioneer-Style Herb Roasted Turkey

Bobby slathers this turkey with an herb-filled compound butter before roasting it until golden brown.

Twice-Baked Sweet Potatoes

Pureed chipotle peppers add a kick to these sweet potatoes, while maple syrup adds extra sweetness.

Grilled Shrimp with Garlic (Gambas al Ajillo)

Bobby dressed these shrimp with a Spanish-inspired automatic marinade, which means the shrimp are put straight onto the grill after the marinade is brushed on. Cooking the shrimp on skewers makes them easier to flip and move around the grill.

Perfectly Grilled Steak

It all comes down to technique in Bobby's go-to recipe featured in Food Network Magazine. He lets the meat rest at room temperature before seasoning it and grilling it for just a few minutes per side to achieve a juicy medium-rare interior. If you like your steaks a bit more well-down, just keep them on the grill a bit longer.

Shrimp and Grits

Bobby makes sure his grits turn out especially rich and creamy by stirring in butter and sharp cheddar cheese before serving, and for over-the-top flavor in the shrimp, he fries the seafood in bacon fat.

Greek Quinoa Salad

Just like the Greek salads you know and love, this easy recipe features briny Kalamata olives, juicy grape tomatoes and cool cucumber. But instead of using greens, Bobby opts for quinoa for an extra boost of protein.

Grilled Chicken Breasts with Spicy Peach Glaze

It takes only a handful of ingredients to make this go-to chicken dinner. Bobby balances the flavor of the glaze by mixing peach preserves, a dollop of Dijon and a single jalapeno; the mixture creates a sweet, tangy bite.

Baked Apples with Oatmeal and Yogurt
