Any successful and popular eatery will more than likely serve a burger that will make you want to come back again and again. Whether a signature item, or just the fact all the burgers at a location taste awesome, burgers can be a menu item that makes or breaks a restaurant. Even though your mind might be on commercial exhaust hoods or dish machine chemicals, you should focus on creating a burger that will make headlines in your city or town.
The key to a perfect burger is in the balance of the ingredients. For example, you don’t want your bun to dominate the burger, as you don’t want it to be so thin it offers nothing to the dish. Depending on your type of menu, you can opt for a traditional sesame seed bun or perhaps you want something more unique like a brioche bun. Either way, serve is lightly toasted to add a little texture to your burger.
Variety is the spice of life, and this holds true in terms of the size of your burgers. Don’t just offer a half pound behemoth for the masses, think of those who need two sittings to finish such a dish. Offering 1/3 pound burgers or mini burgers will draw more customers as well as a variety of burger connoisseurs. As important as size is the quality of meat you use. Whether you opt for ground beef, turkey or Bison, make sure it is high quality.
Lastly, offer an abundance of toppings for your burger menu, just not all on one burger. That is, too many toppings will overpower the actual burger, not a good idea. Also, when considering toppings, think outside the box and discover something yummy that patrons cannot find elsewhere. Offering a great burger will do wonders in your successful venture.
