A burger that’s well constructed, tasty, juicy, doesn’t fall apart on you and offers a delicious combo of tastes and textures should be celebrated for National Hamburger Month! So, what’s the secret to the perfect burger? Whether you’re eating out, getting office catering delivered from one of our quality corporate caterers, or making them at home, here are our top tips for the ultimate burger.
The 80:20 rule is the perfect ratio for a truly great hamburger patty. That’s 80% lean and 20% fat content.
When creating and grilling your meat patties:

You can use any cheese you want, but it should meet these 3 key requirements:
The best cheese (and our favourites) include:
Whether it’s a brioche roll, seeded burger bun, potato roll or milk bun, it should always be buttered and lightly toasted on the grill.
Avoid anything that’s overly chewy or has a tough crust – you want to get everything in that one bite, not just a mouthful of bread.
The lettuce should always be underneath the patty to catch the juices and stop it from seeping through the bun. If you like tomato on your burger, it should always go on top of the meat patty.
Too many cafes and restaurants put too many ingredients in their burger that it becomes a chore to eat. We’re a stickler for tradition and we like to keep our burgers simple with classic toppings and salad like pickles, lettuce, onion, sweet tomato and sauce. You don’t need to get too fancy with anything else – for us, it’s all about that juicy meat patty!
