4.0 out of 5 stars A must for BBQ lovers! 13 Sep 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I borrowed this from the library on a whim but it looked so good that I had to go and order it!

We've (well, my wife as she's the real foodie) not actually got around to trying any of the recipes as of yet but there's some great inspiration when just flicking through the pages. Let's just hope that the summer holds out just that little bit longer so we can make the most of the BBQ and not have to resort to cooking indoors!

Apart form having to Google for translations (ground meat is minced meat and beef chuck is braising beef, etc) it is lovely to have burgers that are actually substantial but wholesome and healthier than the drive through muck. Although how Rachael can eat a large burger, chips (that's fries, y'all), and salad is beyond me. I was super nourished(!) after eating just one lamb burger with tzatziki dressing, but then everything is supposed to be bigger in America (I wonder if the men... cough). X.

3.0 out of 5 stars Excitement turned to disappointment 16 July 2012
By K. Paige - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was really excited when Rachael Ray first plugged her book on her talk show a few months ago. I eagerly awaited its release and was very excited when it finally arrived. I was ultimately disappointed with the content.

Rachael Ray has excellent burger recipes. I watch her talk show every day hoping for a burger recipe. What I didn't realize is that all of the burger recipes I had printed out from her talk show website would be included in this book. Most of the recipes have appeared on the show. I had already printed out the ones I liked. So I just spent $20 for something I already had. There are a few in the book that I was unaware of that look good. I have yet to make them so I can't comment.

I also read a review on Amazon that the book contained few pictures. I paid no attention to this criticism as I thought I'd be ok with that. I'm not. I would like more pictures.

Overall I was disappointed as a lot of these recipes are repeats of what has aired on her talk show. But I guess if you don't watch her show, you'll love this book as they are fantastic burger recipes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting choices in "The Book Of Burger" 16 Oct 2012
By Kevin Tipple - Published on
If you are looking for some variety with your burgers, Rachel Ray has the book for you. After a brief introduction to burgers as well as her preferred meat blend, it is on to the recipes in this book published last June. While there are recipes for outside grilling, Rachel Ray thinks of burgers as a year around deal. The Book Of Burger isn't just about burgers, despite the title.

The book opens with a section titled "Burgers" made of beef veal, pork, chicken, veggies and other things. The section starts with "Big Beef Burgers with Crunchy Sour Cream Onion Rings (pages 4-6). This one serves four and features onion rings on top of a hamburger topped off with lettuce and red ranch dressing. "Chili Mac 'N' Cheese Burgers" (pages 12-13), "Bloody Mary Cheeseburgers" (page 31), as well as "The Ultimate Salami Burgers" (page 52-53) among others are in this section.

Unfortunately, there is no nutritional information on the recipes as well as very few pictures. Tips, suggestions, and information in small text notes with or without small icons is present and plentiful. The Book Of Burger is billed as an "Atria Smart Book" and features active links to information online as well as images that can be scanned by smart phones to release still more information. The active links were not explored and this reviewer does not have a smart phone so those images were not explored either.

The next section begins on page 128 and is "Sliders" primarily featuring, beef and pork. There is one recipe using lamb as well as several recipes for chicken and turkey sliders and two featuring seafood. Also included here is further evidence this book is not just about burgers as there are recipes for "Bourbon /Barbeque Sliced Steak Sliders" (page 139), "Green and Red Chili Nacho Sliders" (pages 144-145) and "Sliced Steak Soft Taco Sliders with Guaca-Salsa" (pages 154-155) among others.

This leads into the next section that further goes away from the title of the book. "Sandwiches and Dogs" begins on page 174 and features subs and hoagies as well as sorts of dogs and sausages. Here are recipes for "Albondigas Subs: Spicy Spanish Meatball Subs" (page 186-187), "Bourbon BBQ Pulled Chicken Sandwiches and Green Apple Slaw" (pages 192-193) and "Cubano Dogs" (page 199) among others.

While nearly every dish in this book is going to be some potential sloppy eating, "Sloppies" is the title of the next section. Whether it be "Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes" (page 216-217) "Sloppy Dawgs" (page 227), or "Sloppy Veg-Head Joes with Beans" (page 236-237) among others, the mess they make is the theme here.

Of course you need "Sides and Sauces" because anything regular will not do. Starting on page 240 along with various recipes for French fries and tater tots there are several recipes for potato salads of different types and ones for onion rings, devil eggs, and pickles. Not to mention several for ketchups, dips, and gravies.

A final chapter "Burger Bash" features recipes from famous and therefore well-known chefs such as Bobby Flay, Marc Murphy and others.

The Book Of Burger closes with a sixteen page index.

An interesting cookbook that features variety and not just with burgers. You can use this book to make things as simple or as complicated as possible. Some toppings are for more complicated and will take far longer to create than others. The Book Of Burger, despite its name, goes far beyond burgers and thus will have appeal outside the demographic related to its title. A lack of nutritional information and pictures are a definite negative and rather surprising considering her frequent comments promoting healthy eating on her TV show.

Material supplied by the good folks of the Plano, Texas Public Library System.

1.0 out of 5 stars So disappointed!!! 27 Aug 2012
By B. Carlson - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I expected to find a LOT of burger recipes in this book.
However, there were just a lot of burger TOPPING recipes,
not actual recipes to mix IN the burgers. I was very
disappointed and sent it back.
