At a cookout or restaurant, for lunch or dinner, a good burger is incredibly satisfying. While a classic burger with just some lettuce and tomato is great, amping up your burger with extra toppings will make it even more satisfying. Luckily there are lots of toppings you can easily make yourself at home. Here are a few fun ideas.
Caramelized onions are one of the most well-known and delicious toppings for burgers or any meat. It takes time for the onions to cook slowly, drawing out their natural sweetness and letting their sugars caramelize properly for a biting, sweet-and-savory burger experience.
If you love tomatoes and you like your veggies to have some extra oomph, you can roast your tomato slices before putting them on the burger. Drizzle them with olive oil, a bit of honey, and herbs. You can do this for any other vegetable you like on your burger, as well.
Another way to prepare your onions is to pickle them quickly. This is great if you like your burger to have a bite and some sourness rather than sweetness. This will also give you a nice extra crunch.
