How to Get Away with Burger

Drool over the most exquisite burgers on the Internet

This May, join us as we gear up for the first day of summer with recipes and ideas to make it your best ever. Let the Summer Countdown begin.

"Burgers are so overrated!" said no one ever. The beautiful simplicity of a juicy grilled patty on a soft yet toasty bun (plus all the fixins) is truly one of life's greatest pleasures. Whether you're a burger purist or a fan of the cheese-stuffed, bacon-topped, mac-and-cheese-clad creations of today, you're bound to know the power of the patty. (And, yes, sure, veggie burgers are good, too.)

Although we at TT appreciate the burger's greatness every day of the year, tomorrow is especially important, as it marks the completely arbitrary celebration of National Burger Day. Since we can never say no to a good burger, we've decided to indulge ourselves in said holiday. And because burgers are often as beautiful to look at as they are to eat, we've compiled a list of the most photogenic patties and buns on Instagram for your viewing pleasure.

Warning: These photos might just turn you into a carnivore for life.

The arugula poking out of the bottom is a valiant effort towards health.
