The Best Toppings For Your Burger

You should never underestimate the power of your burger’s toppings. Sure, all burgers are dependent on the quality of their patty, but the toppings can really bring out the flavour. With the right mix and match of other ingredients, you can make your burger sing.

There are so many delicious and unique ingredients that can go great on a burger. But you’ve got to keep in mind that not all toppings are created equal. To help you find the perfect toppings for your burger, we’re going to walk you through some of our favourites to get your juices flowing!


Pickles offer both salty and sour flavours that complement the savoury tastes of beef very well. So if you’re someone who likes to add salt, pepper or ketchup (all staples at burger restaurants) to your patty, give it a try with pickles instead! It can’t hurt: there are no calories in vinegar-soaked cucumbers like those found at almost every fast food joint today. They’re also good for you health-wise too because they contain vitamin K which helps blood clotting when needed most.”


One of the most popular toppings for your burger is onion. Onions are a great go-to because they add flavour to your burger without adding any complicated sauce to take away from the taste of your patty. Red or white onions can be used, depending on what you prefer and what goes better with the rest of your toppings. You can also have caramelized onions to add sweetness, which can help balance out other sharp flavours in your burgers such as cheese or pickles.


Kimchi adds a spicy kick to your usual burger without being too overpowering. Its health benefits are also a big plus since it’s actually quite nutritious. Not only is kimchi rich in vitamins and minerals, but it is a probiotic food that can help sustain the normal growth of good bacteria in your digestive system. Lastly, its vibrant red colour makes it an incredibly appetizing topping choice. A little goes a long way!

American cheese

If you’re having a burger, cheese is almost always an important topping to consider. It’s not just a delicious addition; it is also a great source of protein.

American cheese is our preferred choice. While other kinds of cheeses may be more flavorful, American cheese will melt into your burger without changing its flavour profile as drastically, which can be a plus if you’re avoiding bolder flavours like Swiss and blue cheese.


When you think of burger toppings, mayonnaise is likely the first thing that comes to mind. Just make sure your mayo covers the entire top half of the bun and only the top half! This ensures even distribution and maximum flavour with every bite.

Also, make sure you use just enough mayonnaise, too much will make your mouth feel oily, and less than a moderate amount will result in an uneven texture due to small pockets of dense flavours scattered throughout your burger.
