Every year there are more than 50 billion burgers sold in restaurants all across the country, making them one of the most popular foods. Burgers are so beloved, partly in part because they can be completely customized to your preferences with unlimited variations.
One of the easiest ways to change how you eat a burger is to add a new, unique sauce to the burger itself. No burger is complete without the additional juiciness that comes from the sauce and changing it up can give you a completely different taste. A new sauce will give you the foundation to add other toppings and build an entirely special meal just for you.
When you’re looking at all the sauce options it can be very overwhelming. Luckily, we’re here to guide you in the right direction and have the top five sauces you should try next time you order a burger!
Sometimes burger lovers crave something a little lighter and fresher than the traditional cheeseburger with toppings. When that’s the case, a pesto for the main sauce can be a perfect choice.
Pesto feels like it came fresh from the garden and brightens up the whole dish.
2. Hollandaise Sauce
While trying to create a unique burger, it’s a good idea to take a look at condiment options from other meals like breakfast.
Adding hollandaise sauce creates a rich foundation where you can add eggs or bacon for a fun twist on the classic. This will quickly become your go-to choice.
3. Bacon Jam
Speaking of bacon, some chefs love to create a bacon jam where the full, savory flavor of bacon is brought out by a long, slow cook. This addition to a burger can bring a smoky, sweet element that boosts the flavor of the burger meat.
4. Mayo with a Twist
A tried and true classic condiment that you’ll find on most of the best burgers is mayonnaise. The tang adds just the right zing to keep the bite interesting.
Using mayo as a base for additional flavor profiles can be an interesting addition to your burger. Some choose to make it spicier by adding chipotle or brighten it up by adding a variety of fresh herbs.
5. Spicy Chutney
Just like looking to other meals can bring a spark of inspiration, many find good ideas for burger sauce options from other cuisines. Take a spicy chutney, for example, this comes from traditional Indian cooking but can be the perfect addition to an American burger.
