Memorial Day has a lot of meaning for us. It’s a day of remembrance where we honor the men and women who gave their lives in military service. It is also a day when families come together to spend time with each other. As with many of our national holidays, this often means cooking and sharing a meal.
Since Memorial Day falls in the midst of spring, many families choose to cook outside on the grill and classic hamburgers are usually on the menu. Our sponsor HelloFresh has some brilliant burger recipes that take an inventive and fun spin on an American classic.
Check out these burger ideas from HelloFresh that will elevate your grilling experience and give your family food to bond over as we observe Memorial Day together.
HelloFresh has a recipe Hall of Fame filled with customer favorites. The top-rated Juicy Lucy burger is one of these honored recipes for good reason. This clever burger looks normal on the outside, but hides a delicious secret inside: a center of melted cheddar cheese. A topping of homemade onion jam adds the perfect gourmet note to turn this aria into an opera. This is the sort of burger people pay big money for in restaurants, but you can make it at home with a HelloFresh kit delivered right to your door. It will turn your Memorial Day grilling session into a legendary meal.
Gourmet burgers in 20 minutes? Fast and fresh are two hallmarks of HelloFresh recipes and the Cheddar Smash burger is no exception. This take on the time-honored cheeseburger adds the savory kick of chipotle ketchup to a classic beef patty. The idea is to flatten the patty to create a crisp, deeply browned burger. Top it with melting cheddar for a delightful combination.
This one is easy to make on the stovetop if the weather isn’t cooperating or if you don’t have access to an outdoor grill.
Looking for something a little different? HelloFresh's Pork Luau burger is for you. Get ready to revel in pineapple relish on a pork patty seasoned with cilantro, garlic, soy sauce and honey. Yes, honey! It’s a wow mix of sweet and savory that will make you want to wear a lei around your neck.
Two American classics come together in HelloFresh’s delightful meatloaf burger. This recipe calls for some baking time, making it a perfect option for grill-less home chefs. HelloFresh’s special meatloaf mix of spices brings all the traditional flavor of your favorite comfort food to the convenience of a bun. A topping of barbecue sauce brings a taste of summer to the dish, making a perfect complement to your favorite Memorial Day sides. Serve it up with potato salad, chips, corn on the cob, or coleslaw for a full family meal.
Vegetarians can also hitch a ride on the flavorful burger bandwagon this Memorial Day with HelloFresh’s take on the popular black bean burger. Corn, jalapeno peppers, and a lively southwestern spice blend really bring wonderful flavor to these healthy burgers.
