Adding a second protein can boldly take a burger from ‘good’ to ‘unforgettable.’ Even better, it provides you endless possibilities to create and differentiate your menu. Let’s look at a few simply-to-execute, yet super-impressive, burger ideas.
What could be better than a pizza and burger combination? Nothing. Try adding fried pepperoni, mozzarella, parmesan and tomato to your beef burger to create a world-class feast.
Smoked Brisket Burger
Whether you start with one beef patty or two, be sure to pile on the “wow” with some tender juicy brisket. Add your favorite BBQ sauce (with a splash of pickle juice) then cheese and onions. Yum!
Beef & Ham Cheeseburger
Lightly cook your ham in a skillet then add it to your cooked beef burger along with a cheese that creates the desired personality: Swiss? Gorgonzola? Pimento? Port Salut?
Candied Bacon Burger
It’s time to play! Make your own sweet/crispy/caramelized candied bacon with accent flavors that suit your menu: Maple syrup? Sriracha? Honey? A spicy rub?
Prosciutto Crumble Burger
Crispy prosciutto and juicy beef – an indulgent combination. Top with caramelized onions and a sprinkle of cheese; then finish it in your broiler to beautifully melt your flavors together.
Roast Beef Burger
Top your trusted beef burger patty with thinly sliced roast beef, cheddar cheese, horseradish sauce, lettuce and tomato. Be sure the roast beef is tender, and the bun is sturdy!
