The secret to these juicy and superflavorful pork burgers is blending chorizo, capers and fresh ricotta into the ground meat. Slideshow: Burger Recipes

How to Make It

Step 1    

Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. In a large bowl, gently mix the ground pork with the chorizo, ricotta and capers. Form the meat into six 3/4-inch-thick patties and season lightly with salt and pepper.

Step 2    

Grill the burgers over moderately high heat, turning once, until lightly charred and cooked through, about 10 minutes; top the burgers with the cheddar during the last minute of grilling and let melt. Transfer the burgers to a work surface and let rest for 5 minutes.

Step 3    

Spread mayonnaise and ketchup on the buns and set the burgers on the bottom halves. Top with the pickles and lettuce and close the burgers; serve right away.

Make Ahead

The uncooked patties can be refrigerated for up to 8 hours.

Suggested Pairing

Bold, fruit-forward red Rhône varieties, like Grenache and Syrah, are superb with these burgers. Pour one from California.
