Hamburger Topping Ideas....

Taken from my Home Made Simple Newsletter!

Hamburgers are one of the easiest foods to prepare when planning a cookout. But just because it's easy doesn't mean it has to be boring. You can make your hamburgers memorable by simply getting creative with the toppings. For a little inspiration, we compiled some not-so-ordinary ways to make an unforgettable burger. But first, every great hamburger needs a well-made patty. So here's a basic ground beef recipe to get you started.

Prelude to a Patty
This recipe will make eight hamburger patties. Increase the amounts to reflect your party size.

2 eggs
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 pounds ground beef
1/2 cup fine, dry bread crumbs

Preheat your grill on high heat and oil the grate. In a bowl, whisk together eggs, salt, and pepper. Place ground beef and bread crumbs into the mixture, and with your hands or a fork, mix until well blended. Form into eight patties, each about 3/4-inch thick. Place the patties on the grill and cook 7 to 9 minutes per side, or however long you desire.

Now the difference between a plain patty and a work of art is just a few creative toppings away. Look to these unique toppers to really beef up your burger.

Aloha Burger
Top this Big Kahuna with a pineapple slice, cooked bacon, and mozzarella cheese. You can even incorporate coconut shreds. Replace your standard bun with a Hawaiian sweet bread bun.

Buffalo Burger
Coat cooked patties with chicken wing sauce, top with blue cheese, and serve with celery on the side.

Fiesta Burger
Top this hamburger with all your favorite taco ingredients. Layer with cheddar cheese, shredded lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, black olives, and tortilla chip crumbles.

Make your favorite sandwich into hamburger form by adding bacon, lettuce, and tomato. Spread well with mayo.

My Big Fat Greek Burger
Use feta cheese, black olives, tomatoes, and onions for the ultimate Greek experience.

Totally Vegged-Out Burger
Pile the patty high with your favorite cool veggies. Try cucumber slices, tomatoes, bean sprouts, and a creamy dill dressing. For a true vegetarian experience, replace the beef patty with a vegetarian patty.

Reuben Burger
Smother this burger with melted Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, and Thousand Island dressing. You can even substitute the bun with marble rye bread.

Rancher Burger
Corn, black beans, cilantro, melted cheddar, Monterey Jack cheese, and ranch dressing make this the burger of choice around the campfire.

N'awlins Burger
Sprinkle your patty with Cajun seasoning, and layer with jalapeno cheese, tomatoes, green onions, and chilies. Mix together 2 teaspoons of chili paste with a cup of mayonnaise to spread on the buns.

Mama Mia Burger
Make Mama proud by topping this patty with roma tomatoes, fresh basil, and provolone cheese. Spread garlic butter on the inside of the bun for extra kick.

We are always looking for more ideas. You might want to add this to the 101 Burger Builders sticky at the top of the page. A lot of unique ideas and we should try to keep them all together.
