Hamburger, Veggie Burger, or Turkey Burger?

I am a carnivore who is working to eat lower on the food chain. I experiment with meatless entrées, but when at a BBQ and confronted with a choice between a veggie burger and a regular burger, I always opt for the latter – and usually with cheese.

Since BBQ season is in full swing, what do you eat . . .

Haven't had meat or cheese in over a year and I don't miss it a bit! Veggie burger piled high with lettuce (or preferably spinach!) ketchup, veganaise, tomatos mmmmmmmmmmm I even stopped eating ground meat years before I went vegan..... ground meat is where all the 'scraps' of the slaughterhouse go. You couldn't pay me enough to eat it!!!

I picked Veggie Burger since I quit red theory... I still have my Famous Star with cheese from Carls Jr. dripping with mayonnaise ONCE in a while.

Hamburger or chicken burger. I'm not a big fan of turkey and I've only had a couple of decent-tasting veggie burgers. I get lean hamburgers whenever I can.

My 1st choice is ALWAYS a veggie burger with them! I like turkey burgers too, but I'm all set with a hamburger.

I'll do a veggie/lentil burger if I make it myself.

woah did someone really just say they like their hamburger super rare???? you should never eat hamburger rare, as the poop from the intestines of the cow sometimes gets all over the meat during butchering. Then when the meat is all ground up... theres poop inside! yum...

I go for the veggie burger! Been a vegetarian for the last two summers, so I'm always trying to do different things on the grill. Did the portobello mushroom caps a few days ago (marinated them beforehand, mmm delish). But, like lilxmissxmolly said earlier, I'll do the sides and dessert thing if it's pretty much all meat on the menu.

Just a heads-up for all of you who think that turkey burgers are so much better for you than beef, unless you're eating burgers made with ground turkey BREAST, they're about the same as a beef burger. Most ground turkey that I see in the stores is 85/15, which isn't that lean. You can make a healthier burger using ground sirloin (93/7 or so)'s a little less juicy, but still pretty good. I actually prefer Boca burgers though...they're really good with onions on them.

I used to strictly eat beef burgers, and occasionally a bison burger (although they are super hard to find around here), however I recently got turned on to turkey burgers LOVE THEM!

wowzers! well.. after all is said.. someone is eating a "burger" but the preference varies.. pfft.. americans and their burgers! :p btw.. my perfect burger would be fresh ground nicely marbled beef cooked medium rare... but add mushrooms too! now i have an idea.. would mixing turkey or chicken with beef work? hmm.. a compromise? hahaha

if i had to choose i would choose veggie burgers there are some that are actually REALLY REALLY good. If we still have veggie burgers I'll have one, but if not my dad makes bomb burgers anyways...

Regular burgers, fish burgers, poultry burgers, vegetable burgers - it all depends if it's cooked well and on the surroundings. If the bun is good, then most fillings work well. If the filling's good, then as long as the bun holds up, it's all good. If the bun and filling are both spectacular, the condiments aren't so important. However, great condiments cannot make up for sub-par filling/bun. That said, I do feel nostalgic for my childhood/adolescent favourite, the Harvey's ultimate burger, back in the day. It came on a cornmeal-dusted kaiser bun and was flame-broiled. I'd get it with all the toppings except mayo. That means diced onion, shredded lettuce, tomato, mustard, relish, hot peppers, pickles and ketchup. Sadly, they've discontinued that specific burger and replaced it with the Angus burger. Meh.

I've been wanting to try the counter in santa monica for awhile now. I'm heading to Father's Office this weekend for the first time and I heard their burgers are the best in the area. Might have to try a bite of a friends. Also, love grilled portobello mushrooms! Might have to grill up some stuffed ones soon.

i've been giving a vegetarian diet a try for the last few months, so sometimes for dinner i pop a boca burger in the microwave and eat it wrapped in lettuce (only 70 calories so i don't consider it a splurge). in general, i'm a firm believer that the occasional splurge is not only forgiveable, but healthy for mind body and soul, so i think that if you're only going to be going to a couple bar-b-qs this summer, go for what you want, but if you're bar-b-qing every week i can see cutting back. for that reason, when i go to a barbq, i don't have any of the barbecued meats, but i'll have the not-so-good for you sides and some dessert.

I've only recently gotten into veggie burgers, but I love them! Theyre so flavorful.
