Bite into a Juicy Burger

Did you know that May is National Hamburger Month? This American staple is so popular that they have a full month to celebrate it! It’s also quite coincidental that it shares a month with National Barbecue Month. In this week’s Willington Lakes Phase 1 Blog, we’ve got a few ways you can spruce up your homemade burgers that you can try in your own Orangeburg, SC apartment!


What you put on your burger can bring your burger to another level of deliciousness, which is why we recommend investing in some quality toppings for your burger. You can stick with the traditional lettuce, tomato, and cheese combination, or branch out and try different toppings like:

  • Avocado

  • Fried egg

  • Arugula

  • Sun-dried tomatoes

  • Mushrooms

  • Different types of cheeses

The Meat

Since it’s National Hamburger Month, the focus should be on the meat of your hamburgers. In order to create a better burger, you’ll have to consider the type of meat being used for your burgers. Instead of buying some frozen patties, try to grind your own meat. Finding the right mix of different cuts of beef can change the way your burger tastes. Play around with the mixture and find your favorite mix!

Side Dishes

The kind of side dishes offered with your burger will add more to your food experience, rounding out a perfect meal. You can make some traditional french fries or expand your burger repertoire by having some other sides like macaroni and cheese, potato salad, grilled corn, or fried pickles. If you’re feeling adventurous, you could even add some of those side dishes onto your burger!

Do you have any ways you take your hamburger to the next level? Share them with our Orangeburg, SC apartment community so we can better enjoy our National Hamburger Month! Thanks for reading!
