Best of Burgers continues with these top choices from Taste of Home. The Midwestern states have long been known for their down home comfort foods, and these burgers will surely be just that. From creamy blue cheese to spicy chili, the toppings on each burger will highlight the best of flavors from each state. Delicious! 


Corn & Blue Burger

Topped with sweet corn kernels, Maytag blue cheese and pickle relish, this burger says Iowa in every, luscious bite.
