It’s quite convenient that National Hamburger Month falls on the same month as National Barbecue Month, as hamburgers are one of the most popular barbecue menu items. In this week’s Quincy Plaza Blog, we’ve got a few suggestions on how you can add to the already delicious food known as hamburgers! We hope you try these suggestions out and celebrate National Hamburger Month!

Use the Right Meat

Many of us get our burgers frozen or premade from the store, which fulfills its purpose by providing us with some tasty burgers, but there is a way to get some better burgers! The way to get a better tasting burger is by ensuring that you’re using the right meat. Many food articles will tell you to grind your own meat, but as long as you’re picking the right cuts of meats and playing around with the mixture percentages, you should be able to find a ratio that gives you the burger you want!


Once you’ve got the right mixture for your burger, you’ll want to gather the toppings that you want. Unlike restaurants where you have very little choice in what goes on your burger, you can pick and choose what you wish to put on your burger when you make it yourself. Some toppings to consider putting on your burger are:

  • Jalapenos
  • Onions
  • Lettuce
  • Tomatoes
  • Pickles
  • All types of cheese
  • Olives
  • Mushrooms
  • Bacon
  • Avocado

Stuff It

As delicious as traditional burgers are, have you ever thought about stuffing your burgers with cheese? This works well when you’re making your own burger patties, producing a result of a deliciously cheesy burger patty! You can play around with what type of cheeses you wish to stuff your burgers with, but we know you’ll end up with a delicious result.
