Hamburgers - Quick and Easy Recipes for Burgers

Who doesn’t crave a mouthwatering, juicy burger every now and then? This go-to favourite is a super indulgence that can be served up in classic style or stacked high with decadent toppings. Here we salute the mighty burger in all its glory.

Hamburgers - So Versatile, You Can Eat a Different Burger for Each Day of the Month

The burger is no longer ruled by beef, with every possible iteration available to tempt even the healthiest diehard vegans. These days you can even go bun-less if you want! It doesn’t take much to create your ideal burger served up to suit your own desires or your own dietary needs. Beyond Meat® burgers even provide a plant-based alternative that will never leave you wanting, especially when using a tempting recipe like our HelloFresh chefs’ twist on the BBQ Ranch Burger. No one will be asking “Where’s the beef?” once they bite into this Beyond Meat® beauty smothered in smoky BBQ sauce, homemade ranch and all the fixings between a soft, delicious bun. Burger patties can be anything you want them to be from turkey to pork and from luscious lamb to bison – there’s truly no end to a burger’s potential to create unique, one-of-a-kind meals in your own kitchen.

Hamburgers Are the Perfect Meal for Beginner Chefs

Whether you simply use ground beef formed into patties, fried to perfection and topped with cheese and your favourite condiments, or finesse your burger magic with a little imagination, the basics of the hamburger are simple:

  • Patty: The patty is the star of the show whether you choose meat, poultry or fish, or plant-based options such as Beyond Meat®, portobello mushrooms, eggplant, cauliflower steaks and more.
  • Bun: The bun holds everything together while allowing people to eat their meal with their hands.
  • Cheese: While not a must, cheese plays an important role for cheese lovers.
  • Condiments: Everyone has their preferred combination of condiments which traditionally include mustard, ketchup, mayonnaise and, for some, relish. However, today, toppings are used to really ramp up the flavour profile from fancy aiolis to chutneys and from sriracha to whacky yet popular peanut butter.
  • Toppings: Toppings are anything else added to the burger such as pickles, lettuce, onions, and tomatoes. Today anything goes – from fried eggs to mushrooms and from onion rings to mac ‘n cheese!
