I need burger ideas

I make burgers once a week for the fam and they demand smash burgers. I think I’ve done what I can with them and need to try something new. What do you recommend?

... my own personal thing with burgers is that I love "copies" of what some restaurants do. Here are a couple of examples:

You might be surprised how much better a burger can be with just a
smidge of butter in the mix. I add 2oz Kerrygold to a pound of ground Angus sirloin.
1# ground Angus sirloin
2oz Kerrygold
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Tbsp Garlic powder
Fresh Ground Black Pepper
pinch of sea salt
Cooked in a cast iron grill pan

I had successful reviews of "meatloaf burgers"

and Taco Burgers (spiced with Taco Seasoning)

I’ve started using Ball Park buns with seeds. I spread them with butter and toast them in a skillet. I use Swiss cheese, dill pickles, Hellman’s, Heinz mustard, and grilled or very thinly sliced onions. I use a conventional beef patty. So there’s no tomato or lettuce, although you could use them if you want to. There seems to be a higher meat-to-other stuff ratio, yet they can be flattened and it’s easy to maintain the burger’s integrity.

Oh, and I add garlic powder to the meat. And S and P.

Never heard of a smash burger before.

My burgers usually have chopped, grilled portobello mushrooms, avocado, dijon mustard, tomato, sweet onion, blue cheese, and then either a very high quality sourdough roll with a crisp crust, or toasted french bread for the bun. The meat can be either beef (though I'm trying to get away from that for environmental reasons) or impossible burger.

They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Smashing just creates so much mess that I don't do it. Broiling does a pretty good imitation of the outdoor grill indoors. Although that's not wothout clean up either.

That'll work. It looks good. I like a good smashburger. It just needs a crust to form.

Wrong again. At least you're consistent.

Ok, this one's off in left field, but it works really well for me, and always leaves me feeling amazingly satiated.

1/3 high quality ground beef (chuck/sirloin/short rib/your pick)
1/3 ground beef heart
1/3 ground beef liver
1 small onion per pound of hamburger mix, sliced/diced and fried in red wine
1.5 tsp allspice per pound of liver that's in the hamburger mix-the allspice is magic at taking away the "nastiness" of the liver flavor.
Salt/peper to taste.

Broil/griddle to medium rare or medium.

I LOVE this recipe.

Use ground chuck.

Use ground chuck.

Only if it contains a decent amount of fat; much of the chuck I've seen can be rather lean.

My two favorite variations are;

Blue Cheese burger... crumbled blue cheese mixed in with the ground chuck.

and

A "ranch" burger (no idea why it's called that... it was on a menu at a cafe in San Francisco about 25 years ago..).
Put a fried egg on the burger. Level of doneness up to you... a runny yolk is delicious, but a big mess to eat. Issue extra napkins.

Once in a while I add roasted poblano to my burger.
Goes well with Monterey Jack.
Charcoal grilled is a must.
