Great Burger Challenge

In the quest for burger perfection, F&W challenged 10 chefs to invent delicious burgers that are creative and simple to make. The results: juicy patties of pork, salmon, chicken, sirloin and more, with toppings like avocado aioli, gingered onions, wasabi mayonnaise and tomatillo-corn relish.

We've scored each of our burgers on a scale of 1 to 10.
