I burnt parts of my lawn with fertilizer. Will it come back or do I have to dig it up and start from scratch? Can I use a a product that is a combination of mulch and seeds to spread over the dead grass?

I think your lawn will recover. Start by flooding it several times to try and rinse away the excess fertilizer. Then keep watering on a regular basis. With any luck only the grass blades were affected and the roots are fine. Hope so!
