Burger Toppings

Burger Toppings on Classic Steakburger

Afternoons spent outside get me thinking – how can I make my burger experience different?

I mean, you don’t want to just melt a piece of cheese over the top and call it a day every time. A variety of burger toppings keeps it interesting.

Fun thing is, a lot of these toppings work well on steaks, too, so let’s get creative!

Here’s a list of burger toppings I’m going to test out this summer. And not only will the toppings change, but I’ll be using Wagyu beef at times, too. It’ll be flavor combinations galore!

1. This Smoke ‘N Peppa Burger Sauce. It gives a smoky, BBQ taste to the beef that I really dig.

2. Blue Heaven Powder®. Love the kick of blue cheese? You’ll love this on your burger or steak. It’s so easy!

3. Blue Cheese Crumbles. You know, when you just HAVE to have the real thing!

Complements for Steak

Filet and Fries

No, I don’t mean, “Hello, steak, you’re looking delicious today.” That’s a compliment.

I mean things that complement a steak – like a luscious steak butter melting on top or a mushroom garnish.

One of my favorite things to do is grill up a bunch of filet mignons and serve them with different steak butters – like roasted garlic, tomato chipotle or Tuscan herb flavors.

Everyone can choose their favorite taste!

Another delicious complement is a nice finishing salt.

Now, when my dad taught me how to grill a steak, he never said anything about finishing salts. But sprinkling on a salt flavored with rosemary or garlic gives your steak an edge that kicks your grillmaster status up a notch or two.

Then, there’s the almighty steak sauce. A perfectly blended steak sauce brings out the richness in your steaks and makes sure it’s a steak you’ll remember.

These are my favorite complements for steak. What are yours?
