With so many delicious toppings to choose from, including pimento cheese, bacon, smoked pork chili, pickled green tomato, avocado, and queso, we’re constantly struggling to decide which combination will yield a perfect burger. So we asked a few experts (aka our awesome staff at Chuck’s) how they choose to style out their burgers. Here’s what they had to say.
Summer suggests starting with the High and the Valley burger, which has crushed avocado, bacon-onion jam, and blistered red peppers. Her twist? Add lettuce and tomato. Summer recommends this combo because the addition of lettuce and tomato adds a great fresh contrast to the rich smoky flavor of the other toppings.
Jordan’s go-to burger has a single patty, medium well, with bacon, an egg cooked over well, jalapeños, and mozzarella cheese. Jordan recommends this burger because he loves breakfast burgers and bacon and egg go great on a burger!
Jeff’s topping choices for his burger are: queso, bacon, an over-easy egg, roasted poblano chiles, and Sriracha mayo. For Jeff, this combo of toppings all started with the queso. He wanted to build a burger around the rich, melty, cheesy sauce, and chose other toppings that would compliment it. This burger might require extra napkins, but we agree with Jeff: It’s worth it.
