Your Blueprint to Building Better Burgers

Happy National Hamburger Day! We Americans love our burgers. According to a 2019 survey, we consume 50 BILLION burgers annually – about 156 burgers per U.S. citizen per year. That’s a lot of beef and buns!

As popular as they are, burgers can be, well, a little boring. Sure, there are the standard array of condiments: ketchup, mustard, pickles, onions, tomato, lettuce, cheese, bacon. Yet even “the works” can feel a little stale after a while. That may be the reason for the rise of “artisan” burgers featuring sauces, mix-ins and fixins’ that give the basic burger a big upgrade. If you’re longing to give your homemade burgers a flavorful makeover, look no further than the Best Burgers Kit.
