hi 5 wabbit! crumbled bacon (well done) and I klike to add blucheese crumbles with the dressing ( never crumbly enough IMO)

I recently had dinner at a friends and his new wife, she made large burger patties and served them (sans bun) with a white gravy, sorta like sausage gravy but with lots of fresh ground pepper and thick tater wedges (also covered) wilted greens with a vinager dressing and for dessert, hot chocolate pudding over buttered biscuts

Finely chopped rosemary and garlic in butter (salt & pepper). Cook burger first, put sauce over top toward end.
Place on a toasted poppy seed hard roll with a tomatoe slice!

I may be repeating myself but. . . .

Short and simple, from the bottom up:
  • Bun
  • Mustard
  • Ground beef
  • Salt & pepper
  • Dill pickle
  • (Optional: a slice of Cheddar)
  • (Optional: bacon)
  • A little lettuce
  • Sliced tomato, but only if good ones are available
  • Maybe a touch more mustard
  • Bun

I love Patty Melts. They are the greatest burger out there. Grilled rye with two slices of Swiss. That is important, as some places will use only one slice for other burgers. Add sauteed onions and you are there. I like ketchup on burgers, so I will use some.

I like Swiss on any burger, so that is pretty consistent. A sturdy bun to build on so I can add bacon, lettuce, onion, tomato, ketchup and mayo, or sometimes 1000 dressing. I'm starting to put a fried egg on them occasionally.
I build my burgers starting with the veggie parts on the bottom. The lettuce prevents the juices from soaking through the bun.
A good burger requires that onion rings and a chocolate malt are served alongside it.

This is a spinoff from the White Castle thread's revelation that ketchup and/or mustard are not standard fare on burgers in some parts of the world, at burger joints and at home.
I grew up with regular old mustard, ketchup, and sometimes pickles, onions, and cheese. We had a few places in KC that served German-style mustard at the counter,(Frank Wachter's Grill) but that was the height of sophistication.
Mayo and the Secret Sauces were for the special issue burgers from the chains. stuff like the Big Mac, Whopper, etc. Tomatoes were an adult thing, along with lettuce. All this other junk on top or inside?.... well, no thank you sir! What do you put on YOUR burger?


i did the white castle way last night but i used a 1/3 pound 85/20 burger in the iron skillet....a little cooking spray 1/4 of a diced vidallia onion little salt/pepper layed burger down with holes in like theres more salt and pepper let it on med. flipped it (didnt steam roll just used off the shelf hamberger bun) ate it just like that and wow was very impressed. that simple way they do it was awesum.
now for the regular way i usally do em straight aka salt pepper maybe some season all with a slice of sweet onion and a thick slice of garden tomato (old germen or brandywine gets a hell yea)i have 38 tomato plants 10 different lotta airloom they are ugly but taste so good.
HELL A GOOD BURGER DOESN'T NEED ANYMORE THAN THAT!!!!if its good burger and cooked right....like the old saying you can cover crap with a blanket but its still crap....

If blue cheese is on the menu, that's all I want -- sometimes a little ketchup, too.

onion (can be raw or fried, depending on my mood)
pickles
ketchup
mustard (either spicy or honey)
cheese (prefer cheddar)

I've pretty much settled on the above and don't vary from it very often at this point; with the exceptions of having an occasional patty melt, preferably with cheddar. I don't like Swiss.

Grilled Bun (buttered & a bit crispy) An Onion Roll does fine!
2 patty's of flavorful burger (not Huge, about 3 oz each) Lightly salted.
1 Thin slice of cheese between the pattys
2 or 3 pieces of crispy Bacon 'crumbled" into the cheese and allowed to melt into the cheese slice.
1 slice sweet onion or red onion raw (fairly thick slice)
If available- 1 slice large beefsteak tomato
If Not available- a bit of ketchup on the onion slice.

That should do it for me.

On my burger: Bacon, American cheese, jalapenos, onion, lettuce, ketchup, and maybe I'll throw some fries on it if they are good enough. The ones we make at home are peppered with sliced jalapenos and garlic, and they grill up very nicely. A toasted sesame or poppy seed bun is preferred. Medium-medium rare.

I know this will sound a "little weird" but the best burger I ever had was at a little hole in the wall restautant up in Manatee Springs, Colorado-they had a chef working there for the summer and his special for the day was a burger topped with homemade chili and a very special cole slaw- it was the Best Ever! Th next year we stopped in and were not so surprised to learn he was no longer there- had saved his $$$ and was at Culinary School! His potato salad wasn't bad either, made that with baked potatoes- you know, it was a bar sort of place, and so what would you do with the insides from your bar food potato skins? Make salad, of course!

Rarely eat a burger but if I do...

Burger: extra lean ground beef or turkey
Cheddar cheese
Diced red onion, or white if no red is available
Couple of jalapeƱo slices
Black pepper and a touch of seasoned salt

And that's it... no mustard, ketchup, tomato, or anything else.

I may have answered this but I like to mix it up .I will always go for sauteed onions, or better deep fired onion straw is available, but the standard I know I can get it anywhere and be happy burger would be: bacon cheeseburger with mayo, onion and pickle. I like ketchup on the side to dip the burger into to minimize the wet ingrediants gushing out the side onto my hand.

But, I am not a stickler, I'll try many toppings.

I agree with it all. I made a "special sauce" the other night much like the Bob's Big Boy Sauce (white ). It's similar to tartar sauce but I put some "bam" into it and boy was it great. I did a search online for the recipe but it calls for a hard boiled egg!!! Call me crazy but I don't remember Big Boy sauce with a hard boiled egg. That's why I did my own version.

I don't get around to making them very often, but my favorite is a "Layback" burger.

beet
lettuce
curried ketchup & grilled onions, peppers and tomatoes
split grilled sausage
fried egg
bacon
american cheese
1/2-lb. burger
4 slices dill pickle
split, toasted, buttered kaiser roll

This was the signature burger at a hole-in-the-wall place down by the tracks in Hallandale, FL in the early '80s called the Billabong. (there have been other restaurants in Broward County of the same name, but this was the original) The owner was a colorful Aussie. He would not even comment on his recipes, but with a bit of deconstruction, I think I got it right.

At home I put the burger on a toasted bun and spoon a dab of Mezzetta's Sweet Bell Pepper Relish on every bite.

Don't knock it until you've tried it!

When we go out I order the burger with a slab of vidalia onion only and dribble some A-1 Sauce on every bite. If they don't have A-1, I pour Lea & Perrins Worchestershire in a saucer and do a little dip before every bite. If neither of those are available I just get up and leave!

There is a Culver's in McKinney, TX that doesn't do as well as it should because of a poor location. I first went there bacause the Dallas Observer named it "Best Burger". The publisher must own the franchise!

They do serve a good (but not Dallas' Best) burger, though. When there I get it with sweet pickle relish only - delicious with the thin, crisp patty.

Here's my way at the Guys: double, no cheese, grilled onions, grilled shrooms, and x-tra A-1 sauce.

I only wish they'd give you the option to get your burger served unwrapped on a paper plate. Getting fries and a wrapped burger with untoasted bun in a poke makes for soggy bread. And I HATE soggy bread!

I'm living in Ontario, Canada.

I prefer mustard, relish, and ketchup on top of a cheeseburger. If there's not cheese, I sometimes add mayo to the list of condiments. Occasionally, some hot peppers find their way into the mix.

Majority of the time though, it's mustard, relish, and ketchup.

recently I have been making square patties at home with ground grass-fed organic beef. I griddle the salted and peppered squares in my cast iron skillet on a small pile of minced shallots. I flip them and it is a beautiful sight to behold - the shallots have darkly caramelized into the face of the patty. I add Monterey Jack, a splash of beer to the pan and quickly cover to steam the cheese to a soft goo on the burgers. Then I serve them on crispy toasted buns with ketchup, mustard, sliced pickles, mayo, shredded lettuce and sliced tomatoes.
Yum!

If the burger is freshly ground and hand formed, then seared with crust on the outside and flowing in juices on the inside. Then, I want as little as possible on the burger.

If the burger is dry or frozen or grilled as fast food; then I want as many sauces, condiments, and veggies as possible.

But pickles, sweet or dill, are a must!

A big slice of raw, white onion. And good luck in getting that idiotically simple order filled at a restaurant today. Either the onion is red, or it only comes in a Sam's Club bag full of hacked-up bits, or they don't have any onions, or the cook can't slice the one onion on the premises for that purpose of your request, or the answer is just plain "Duh."

A few years ago I ordered a Black and Blue Burger because I liked the name and I always try new things.

So much for that. I haven't ordered any other kind since.
Good blue cheese with tomato and red onions, maybe a very slight coat of mayo and ketchup if at all.

I don't know why I had never had it previously but it's had quite a run. I think I'm ready for a change.

I like mine with onion, lettuce, tomato, and two slices of cheese. I will try it like that first and if it needs anything else I will add a little steak sauce and mayo. I really don't like pickles on my burger but will take a few spears on the side. For me, mustard is reserved for Franks!! Sometimes I will make a sauce of ketchup and mayo with a little sweet relish (really helps with a dry burger.) At home I don't have that problem because I make them medium rare. Some of the places here won't let me order them less than medium. J.M.H.O.

Depends what kind of burger...


Backyard barbecue, usually just some steak spices, ketchup/bbq sauce and a grilled sesame seed bun. More often than not american/swiss cheese too. And you'd be surprised how complimentary some crumbled up country bbq chips could be as a topping!

If I'm in the mood, I'll throw on some hot pickled peppers, thin sliced half sour, dab of mustard and relish too.


There have been odd times in which I've been known to sautee some onions as well. That's usually only when I'm grilling over the gas burner in winter or cooking 'em up in a frying pan which is rare.

Unless I'm in a restaurant, I don't go for the lettuce/tomato routine.

The best burger in this area (south western NY - as far over as you can get) is at the See Zurh House at Bemus Point, NY. I can't describe the "burgerness" that enriches every bite. Cooked to order from 1/2 pound of angus beef, I take mine with american cheese, a big slice of raw onion, kethup and mustard. It is heaven on earth. NOthing else is required.

Just tried this last night after grilling some burgers. I took a nice sweet Vidalia Onion and cored out the middle and placed a couple tablespoons of butter along with grill seasoning and wrapped it in foil and threw it on the grill while I cooked the burgers and steaks.

After it was all done I made a burger with melted swiss and the grilled onions from the bbq. It was REALLY GOOD!!!

First of all, there needs to be a logical order of how and where things go onto a burger. "Cold condiments on the bottom, and hot condiments on the top."


What I like on my burger is:

(starting from the bottom up)

toasted kaiser roll style bun (from a bakery, nothing out of a plastic bag)
lot's of mayo (Hellmans or Best Foods only)
fresh dill pickle slices
sliced maui onions
beefsteak tomato
shredded iceberg lettuce
1/2 pound beef patty (ground chuck cooked on the griddle, never on the char)
sliced sharp chedder cheese (Tillamook)
sauted mushrooms
applewood bacon strips
