The Best Burger Toppings to Take Your Burger to the Next Level

A burger with ketchup and cheddar is a classic, but we’ve got some inspiration to jazz up your burgers. With these easy upgrades, a classic burger could become the best burger!

These toppings will take your burger-making to the next level. They’ll make your tastebuds sing and might even make you look like a pro chef!

So, from the creators of the best burger in Nashville, here are some ideas for new ways to top your burgers:

Jalapeño Peppers

Jalapeños are a great way to add a little kick to your burger, and they’re so versatile.

Use them as a topping or as part of the patty. You can also use them in your sauce or spread them on top of your buns. You could chop up some fresh and put them over the top of your patty with cheese and bacon before grilling.

Caramelized Onions

Caramelized onions are a great topping for your burger. They add a sweet flavor that will complement any meat and cheese combination.

They’re easy to make too. Slice your onion into 1/8-inch rings and cook with a little butter in a frying pan over low heat. The trick here is “low and slow” or you’ll burn the natural sugar in the onion.

Avocado or Guacamole

Avocado is a healthy alternative to traditional toppings like cheese and mayo. Avocado has a rich, buttery taste that complements meat burgers well.

Topping your burger with avocado slices is fuss-free and easy. Slice the avocado in half lengthwise and scoop out the flesh into small pieces with a spoon.

Or, make a little more effort and make your own guacamole. 

Add your avo on top of your burgers before serving!

Sauteed Mushrooms

Mushrooms are a great source of vitamin D, which can help with vision and bone health. Mushrooms are low in calories and fat, so they make a healthy addition to any meal.

The best way to cook mushrooms is in a skillet over medium heat. 

If you’ve got large black mushrooms, stuff them with butter, herbs, and garlic. Top that with your favorite grated cheese and grill until melty! Add on top of your burger patty or replace the patty with the mushroom for a vegetarian option.

Cheese Sticks

Cheese sticks are a great way to add flavor to your burger. You can use cheese sticks as a topping or as the base for your burger. They’re easy to make at home, so why not try them out?

To get started making your own cheese sticks, you will need:

  • Cheddar or Mozzarella cheese, cut into fingers
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Bread crumbs or flour
  • Oil for frying

Dip each cheese stick into the beaten egg and then into the flour. Allow them to chill in the fridge for an hour or two to set. Fry in a little oil over medium heat, turning once after 2-3 minutes.
