May is National Hamburger Month
Americans love to fire up the grill for almost any occasion, from backyard barbecues to tailgating parties. No matter what the grilling occasion, burgers are the most frequently chosen fare. In fact, hamburger is the most popular food for the grill. So for National Hamburger Month, let’s celebrate this timeless masterpiece.
One out of every five times Americans fire up the grill, it’s to cook a hamburger, according to NPD National Eating Trends Research, 2003. But the real question is how to top that perfectly grilled burger. Here are just a few suggestions from the Nebraska Beef Council:
Blue Moon: Crumbled blue cheese, sautéed mushrooms, lettuce leaves and sliced tomatoes; serve on an onion bun.
Greek Style: Crumbled herbed feta cheese, sliced black olives and sliced onions; serve in a pita bread pocket.
Trattoria-Style: Mozzarella cheese, roasted red bell peppers, and mayonnaise mixed with basil pesto; serve on focaccia bread.
