    I'm going to grill hamburgers on the weber tonight and I'm getting tired of the regular old burger or cheeseburger. Anybody have any cool ways that they make theirs?

    I was thinking of putting crumbled blue cheese in the middle of one before cooking it.

    Stuffed cheese burgers are good, but so it mixing a packet of Lipton Onion Soup mix with your ground beef.

    I like to chop up some onions and press them into the burger on both sides before grilling. I leave a few raw pieces aside to put on top later.

    Hmmm. I don't have any dill. I do have fresh chives. I'll try that next time. I cook burgers at least once a week which is why I'm getting tired of the same old thing.

    here's a official recipe from epicurious:

    Andouille and Beef Burgers with Spicy Mayo and Caramelized Onions

    SPICY MAYONNAISE:
    ¾ cup mayonnaise
    1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
    1 teaspoon Cajun or Creole seasoning blend
    ¼ teaspoon hot pepper sauce

    BURGERS:
    ½ pound andouille sausage, cut into scant 1/4-inch cubes
    ¾ cup pecans, toasted, chopped
    1 teaspoon salt
    ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
    1½ pounds ground beef chuck or ground beef (20 percent fat)

    CARAMELIZED ONIONS:
    1½ pounds onions, thinly sliced
    2 tablespoons olive oil plus more for brushing grill rack
    3 garlic cloves, minced
    1 tablespoon golden brown sugar

    OTHER INGREDIENTS:
    6 large hamburger buns, split
    8 ounces crumbled blue cheese
    12 pickled okra pods, halved lengthwise
    3 cups watercress tops

    For spicy mayo, mix all ingredients in small bowl. Cover and chill. (Can be made 2 days ahead. Keep chilled.)

    For burgers, toss first 4 ingredients in large bowl. Add beef; blend gently. Shape mixture into six 1/2-inch-thick patties. Transfer patties to small baking sheet. (Also can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and chill.)
    For onions, prepare barbecue (medium-high heat). Toss onions and next 3 ingredients in large skillet. Place skillet on grill; cook until onions are golden, stirring often, about 25 minutes. Remove from grill; season with salt and pepper.

    Brush grill rack with olive oil. Grill buns, cut side down, until golden, about 2 minutes. Transfer buns to work surface.

    Grill burgers until brown on bottom, about 3 minutes. Turn over; sprinkle with cheese. Grill until burgers are cooked to desired doneness, about 3 minutes for medium. Place some onions, then burger, on each bun bottom. Top each with okra and watercress. Spread mayonnaise on cut side of bun tops; place on burgers. Serve with remaining mayonnaise.

    Yield: Serves 6.
