Recipe News: Burger recipes

Jazz up your burger lineup with turkey, beans and Thai flavors.

Brian Bruggeman prefers his burgers made with ground turkey. He got the idea for adding brie from Food Network star Bobby Flay. ”I like to cut the brie into smaller pieces and mix it in the bowl. Some cut the brie into a single ½ - or 1-inch cube and place it in the center of each patty, letting the meat sort of go all around the patty, and the cheese then is in the center. Whichever you choose is fine,“ he said.

Includes recipes for:

  • Turkey burgerswith basil mayo

  • Sweet-hot Thai burger

  • Southwest pinto bean burgers

The Secret to Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies? Let them Rest.

The New York Times has a great story about bakers, and how they achieve chocolate chip cookie nirvana:
Given the opportunity to riff on his cookie-making strategies, Mr. Rubin revealed two crucial elements home cooks can immediately add to their arsenal of baking tricks. First, he said, he lets the dough rest for 36 hours before baking. Asked why, he shrugged. "I don't know,” he said. "They just taste better." "Oh, that Maury's a sly one," said Shirley O. Corriher, author of "CookWise" (William Morrow, 1997), a book about science in the kitchen. "What he's doing is brilliant. He's allowing the dough and other ingredients to fully soak up the liquid — in this case, the eggs — in order to get a drier and firmer dough, which bakes to a better consistency."

  • Chocolate Chip Cookies

Recipe News: A simple citrus recipe for all seasons

Summer is finally here and nothing beats the refreshing taste of citrus on a warm July evening. This week's dish combines grapefruit, lime and orange to create a tangy marinade to accompany fresh catfish. While this meal is a great choice any time of year, its hassle-free preparation and rapid cook-time make it particularly well suited for the lazy, hazy days of summer. The marinade, which in addition to the citrus uses garlic, chile powder, paprika and dry mustard, is added to a resealable plastic bag to coat the fish, making cleanup a snap.
