The Burger Trend is Taking Over America
The burger trend seems to be taking over America. Regardless of whether you go to a fast food restaurant, a fast casual restaurant, or even a fine dining establishment, you are going to find a burger on the menu. The only difference is that the burger has been redefined by some of the top chefs around the country.
What kinds of burgers are you going to see on the menu? This depends on the kind of restaurant that you are looking at. Burgers are now made from not only ground beef, but also ground turkey, ground chicken, and then you get into some of the different types of game, including bison, buffalo, elk, and more.
It’s not just about the protein, either. These chefs at the different restaurants are choosing to put their burgers on all sorts of different breads. You may find Patty melts on different slices of bread, sliders on mini buns, and workers on brioche, Kaiser rolls, jalapeno sesame buns, and much more.
There are a number of celebrity chefs who have chosen to focus on the burger at their different restaurants. In Las Vegas, Hubert Keller offers The Burger Bar, which gives people the opportunity to build their own burger, and they are also able to get different types of fries and milkshakes. Gordon Ramsay also has a restaurant in Vegas aptly named BurGR, which features a casual concept, a 30 foot long fire display, as well as hand cut fries.
The list of other restaurants created by top chefs that feature unique burgers goes on and on. Virtually every chef has decided to take advantage of the Burger trend, putting their own unique twist on the burger.
This means that when you want to re-create your menu, or open your doors for new concept, a burger should be sitting on the menu. It doesn’t have to be the standard cheeseburger with American cheese on a ground beef Patty in between a sesame seed bun. It’s your chance to go outside the box and really create something different – something that is going to put your restaurant on the map.
How you create or re-create the burger is entirely up to you. There have been so many chefs that have weighed in on the burger that it has been completely re-conceptualized. Even salmon has been ground up to include inside of a burger. You can create various toppings, use different cheeses, create new sauces, and much more.
You may want to create a variety of burgers, create a burger where everyone gets to choose their own toppings, or even create a burger bar. There is no right or wrong answer unless you choose not to have a burger at all.
Even how you serve the burger can help you to show off a little bit more. It can be served on a plate, a wooden board, in a paper wrapper, or in some other creative way. Now is the time to take advantage of the burger trend and show your community that you know how to be different and create something that is delicious.
