More to Chew On: Burger Toppings

By The Chew Crew Feb 28, 2013

Did you know that according to a recent Zagat survey, the average American eats one burger a week? With this fact in mind, we asked the co-hosts to share their favorite burger combinations and toppings, and here’s what they came up with:

Clinton: Caramelized onions and bleu cheese on a potato roll.

Mario: Jalapenos, pancetta, mayo, raw onions, tomatoes, relish, mustard and chipotle BBQ sauce.

Michael: Assorted pickles and shasha sauce on a soft bun.

Daphne: Mayo, ketchup, mustard, lettuce, tomato, onion, and potato chips on a potato or pretzel bun.

Carla: Lamb burger with onions, garlic, mint, coriander, chili flakes, tzatziki, and Dijon mustard on a potato roll

If you’re in the market for a new burger pairing, try avocado! According to a new study conducted by researchers at UCLA, adding half an avocado with your burger improves your arteries, blood flow, and cholesterol. Sounds like this might be the winning combo for that one burger this week!
