6 Steps to Get the Best Burger at Home
Need ideas for how to build a burger using one of our make at home patties? We have a 6 step guaranteed formula for making the most simple yet delicious burgers at home! Include all of these 6 elements and you have an incredible burger guaranteed every time!
1. GET A BIG ‘OLE BUN
Make sure it’s big! The bigger the bun, the more fillings you can put inside! Hurray!
2. CHOOSE YOUR SAUCE
We like to pre-slather the buns in sauce so as to get them really juicy and saucy before adding the toppings. There is nothing worse than a dry burger guys- nothing :(
We suggest the following combinations:
Habanero - salsa and mayo, or a sriracha mayo
BBQ Bean - Burger sauce, ketchup, or ketchup AND mayo if you want to take this whole burger taste experience to the next level. Trust us, it’s the way forward.
Shroom - BBQ Sauce or ketchup
3.CHOOSE YOUR BASE
This needs to be something leefy and green. We find that for a really smokin’ burger round lettuce or rocket works best.
4. NOW THE PATTY
Your patty is up next. Sit it on top of your lovely leafy lettuce bed. Does’t this sound so lovely and wholesome?! Finally, a little bit of sauce zig zagged on top of your patty will keep it nice and happy.
5. ADD SOME TOMATO
It’s not obligatory but a tomato always adds a refreshing brust of colour to what could be an otherwise very beige looking burger. Not to mention it adds an amazing fresh and zingy element to each bite. We like to use a juicy beef tomato but any large tomato will do! Pop this on top of the patty next.
6. NOW FOR THE EXTRA TOPPINGS
Now this is the part where things get really creative. You can put almost anything in a burger (within reason!) but to help you out we’ve given you a recommended list below. Go wild with this- chances are you can’t get it too wrong with this list and you may find a new favourite combo!
