This recipe came from a revelation in the ’70s, when my friend Semeon Tsalbins introduced me to the lamb burger. It is ground lamb — shoulder is best — highly seasoned and grilled rare. (Photo: Francesco Tonelli for The New York Times)

For this burger, you need fat. Pork shoulder is almost imperative for the correct balance of lean and fat. You need strong spices; as a starting point, you cannot beat fennel seeds and black pepper. And you need adequate salt, an essential in any good burger. (Photo: Francesco Tonelli for The New York Times)

Pronounced PLYESS-ka-vee-tsa, this burger as wide as a birthday cake is beloved in Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Slovenia and Montenegro; and more recently in Italy, Germany, Chicago as well as Queens. (Photo: Evan Sung for The New York Times)

These high-protein burgers are a great way to edge away from beef and still feel like you’re eating a burger. If you sear them quickly they’ll be nice and moist. (Photo: Andrew Scrivani for The New York Times)

    Looks delicious and simple. I like a bit of spice with my burgers. You should try the bleu cheese burger or the honey Dijon.... yummy!
