WHAT IT IS: Artisan burgers, stuffed with every good thing under the rainbow.
WHY IT’S DIFFERENT: So much flavor is packed into each burger from the added ingredients, that no ketchup is required—or even a bun, for that matter.
WHY WE LOVE IT: Brilliant idea, amazing taste. It’s the only burger we want ever want to eat—no kidding.

Built Burgers: Lamb & Pork Varieties

We already loved lamb burgers before we tried Built Burger’s; and now we’re addicted to the BBQ Pork Burger.

  • Delightful Potsticker Burger: natural pork, wild prawns, ginger and soy sauce. OMG, one of our favorite foods, potstickers, combined into a surf-and-turf burger. It tastes exactly like eating a potsticker and a burger at once (and in fact, that’s just what you’re doing, minus the dumpling shell).
  • Luxe Italian Burger: a mix of meats, all- natural beef, pork and veal, with sauteed carrots and toasted  pine nuts. This mix is currently out of stock so we weren’t able to try it; but we hope it’s back for our next order.
  • Thrill BBQ Pork Burger: all-natural BBQ pork, roasted red peppers and those divine caramelized onions. Yes, we’re thrilled.

Built Burgers: Chicken & Turkey Varieties

If you don’t eat red meat, Built Burger has created chicken and turkey burgers so flavorful, that even beef eaters would switch:

  • Utopia Chicken Burger: all natural chicken panko,* shallot, cilantro, mint, lime juice, fish sauce, rice powder and chili flakes. This isn’t your mother’s chicken burger: It’s a fusion burger with the flavors of Thailand. There’s a bit of heat—but not so excessive. It’s like a trip to a good Thai restaurant. You can forget the fries and serve it with jasmine rice.
  • Give Thanks Turkey Burger: all-natural turkey is blended with cranberries and celery, sage and panko, the “stuffing.” You don’t have to wait for Thanksgiving to enjoy this gourmet turkey burger. Accented with sweet-tart cranberry sauce and holiday seasonings, you can gobble it up every day.

*Panko is the Japanese term for bread crumbs. Panko are lighter, crispier and crunchier than Western bread crumbs—we’ve switched to them exclusively for breading, crab cakes and other recipes. You can find them in supermarkets and in Asian groceries.

Built Burger has a set menu of 10 varieties year-round plus ongoing limited-edition flavors. Click on “Our Menu” at the bottom of their web page to see what’s in stock. To ensure maximum freshness, each patty is crafted by hand to order, then flash frozen and FedExed to you in dry ice.

Have burgers ever been this flavorful or this much fun? Nope—this is it: the sublime epitome of burger perfection. All of our Top Picks are great, but this tasting was pure joy. Build up a supply of Built Burgers—you won’t want to run out.
