National Hamburger Month – May

National Hamburger Month - May
(Last Updated On: November 9, 2022)


National Hamburger Month in May kicks off some of the busiest grilling and barbecuing season of the year.

Americans love their burgers and restaurants dedicated to making them just right have been in business for generations. Even those who refrain from red meat don’t let hesitate to find a way to enjoy a juicy burger. Whether the burger is charbroiled, grilled or barely kisses the heat, there’s a flavor for you.

If you like a burger that’s saucy and juicy, try an all-beef patty with bleu cheese and grilled yellow onion.

For a creaminess and crunch, add a slice of ripe avocado and bacon.

When it comes to adding some tanginess to a burger, a few ingredients never fail. Goat cheese brightens a burger every time, but if you’re looking for a crispness, too, add some creamy coleslaw instead. Another option in this category is the reliable tartar sauce.

If you like to bring the heat, you can look to your cheeses. Pepper jack is a mild way of adding some spice. However, if you prefer to test the limits, fresh sliced jalapenos or habaneros will also do the trick.
