It’s a fact – Americans love burgers. Just take this statistic for example: 60% of all sandwiches sold in the U.S. are hamburgers.
Whether you’re operating a fast casual restaurant, a gastropub, or a brewery, if a burger isn’t on the menu, you’re missing out on a ton of potential sales. And for operators who do feature burgers on their menu, do you have the right tools to serve better burgers?
Let’s take a closer look at three ways to serve a better burger in your New England foodservice operation.
From the type of meat, like ground beef, turkey, or bison, to the shape and composition, it’s important to not only offer quality patty, but also a consistent patty. Many chefs recommend following an 80% / 20% lean-to-fat composition for the hamburger patty, which keeps the burger from drying out while also preventing the burger from being too greasy.
The best burger toppings is a debate as old as time, but one thing is for certain – the possibilities are endless. Unique burger toppings have created standout, signature menu items for restaurants as of late. Fried eggs, onion rings, macaroni and cheese, and even other meats, have all found their way on top of a hamburger.
Whether you’re serving sliders or a burger stacked a mile high, how you present the food to your guests can make or break their meal. In an environment like a fast casual restaurant or brewpub, it’s important to make dining experience fun. From the burger to the fries, to the shakes and the beer, go beyond the basket with a presentation style unique to your foodservice operation.
