The Best Bun

When it comes to choosing the right bun for your hamburger, the options are seemingly endless. Some people even choose to forego the bun altogether, either because of dietary restrictions or otherwise, while others hold a firm allegiance to their preferred tsyle of bun. If you prefer your burger on the juicy side, a thicker, more sturdy bun is best as it won’t get soggy as easily as other options. Because of this, Kaiser rolls or ciabatta rolls make the best buns for juicy hamburgers. Onion rolls and sesame seed buns are also great options for adding another flavor element to your burger.

Delicious Condiments

Just as some folks are incredibly particular about what type of bun they prefer for their hamburger, many burger connoisseurs are very selective about what types of condiments they dress their meal in. Some people prefer hamburgers that have more condiments on them than meat while others are purists, preferring nothing but the burger and the bun. There are several different condiments you can add to your meal, such as the standard ketchup, mustard, mayo, lettuce, tomato, pickles, and onion. To create a unique dish, some choose to get creative, adding things like fried eggs, peanut butter, jelly, and cream cheese to their burger.

The Right Meat

Finally, while the best bun and select condiments are essential to crafting a tasty burger, there would be no burger without the right meat. Standard hamburgers are often created solely out of beef, however, you want to choose a meat that has the right amount of fat content to keep the burger tender and juicy after it is grilled. Aside from beef, other types of meat, such as ground sausage, lamb, and pork, also work well for creating a delicious burger. Many burger fanatics combine beef with other meats to create a unique flavor combo.
