Toppings Ideas

Early classic burger toppings, in addition to ketchup, mustard, and relish, as well as fried eggs and even chilli.

Here are a few of our favourite toppings ideas!

Spicy Burgers

One delicious option for summer burgers incorporates toppings like:

  • jalapeños

  • cheese, like habanero or cheddar

  • spicy mayo

  • caramelized onions

  • corn

  • guac

Pineapple Burgers

In addition to adding flavour to beef, chicken, pork, and some types of fish, pineapple tenderizes meat. Regardless of how you feel about pineapple on pizza, it’s a great addition to burgers.

In addition to a slice of grilled or caramel pineapple, tropical summer burgers can include toppings like:

Mediterranean Burgers

Over the last few decades, recipes inspired by Mediterranean cuisine have become popular for both their amazing flavour and health benefits.

For these burgers, you’ll want toppings like:

Think Outside of the Bun

Once you’ve got your burger and your toppings, it’s time to choose the bun! There’s definitely nothing wrong with sticking with the tried and true burger bun: we love Good Bread’s local, wholesome brioche buns.

But, here are some other ways to change it up!

  • you’ve probably heard of substituting veggies in place of the bun for a meatless option. But nutritious veggies are also a great BBQ option for anyone with wheat sensitivity or a low-carb eating plan! It’s easy to use grilled eggplant, plantain, or portabello mushrooms instead of buns for a delicious option.

  • using a pita pocket instead of a bun is a perfect fit if you opt for Mediterranean-style toppings 

Putting It All Together

Of course, the perfect BBQ doesn’t just end with the burger. Fries, salads, and an amazing dessert are just as important! Check out our online grocery for these essentials and more, and don’t forget to tag us in the photos of your creation!
