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!

How To Build the Best Burger

Classic Steakburger with Cheese Sauce

The best burgers start with one thing: top quality meat.

I prefer burgers made from steaks – steakburgers using ground steak beef. For a real treat, try American Wagyu beef. It’s a delicacy that’s a bit more expensive, but worth the expense. This beef is tender and flavorful and a great starting point for a burger with endless possibilities.

Also known as Kobe beef, THIS is the basis for a steakburger you won’t forget.

From this point on, the rest is up to your own personal preferences: cheese or no cheese? Vidalia onions? Bacon? Blue cheese? Wheat bun?

The ideas just keep coming. But remember, if the beef itself is sub-par, there’s really no hope for greatness after that.

Check out these fantastic burger ideas and build a burger you’ll keep coming back to!
