  1. Turkey Ground turkey tastes great in this combo-just make sure to use a mix of white and dark meat (90 percent lean) and cook for 5 minutes per side.

  2. Bacon This serious burger comes with two strips of bacon. Bobby likes them crisp.

  3. Onion Rings To make shoestring rings, heat 1 quart peanut oil to 360 degrees in a deep, heavy pot. Dredge thin Vidalia onion rings in flour seasoned with salt, pepper and cayenne; dip in buttermilk seasoned with salt and pepper, then dredge in more flour. Fry until golden brown, turning once or twice, about 4 minutes. Drain on paper towels; season with salt.

  4. Cheddar This extra-smoky burger calls for two thick slices of smoked sharp cheddar cheese .

  5. Bobby's BBQ Sauce Heat the oil over medium-high heat in a heavy-bottomed saucepan. Add the onion; cook until soft, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add the ketchup and 1/3 cup water, bring to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients (except salt and pepper); simmer for 10 minutes, or until thickened, stirring occasionally.

  6. Transfer the mixture to a food processor ; puree until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Pour into a bowl; cool to room temperature. Spoon on burgers.
