HelloFresh’s Top 10 Best Burgers September 7, 2016

by Eat

If you haven’t already heard, we love burgers. A lot. There’s just something about these hearty, juicy, and cheesy wonders that keeps us coming back again and again. One day a few weeks ago, our culinary team sat down (over burgers, obviously) to come up with an all-star recipe that would make our love for this American classic official. After several rounds of taste testing and heated burger debates, they nailed down the ultimate recipe. It will be in the boxes in two weeks, so select it next week! We don’t want to reveal tooooo much, but trust us: The Icon Burger is the real deal.

In the meantime, feast your eyes on HelloFresh’s top 10 best burgers.

This burger is a cheesy dream-come-true, and we’ve got Monterey Jack (and our chefs, Frieda and Nate, of course) to thank for that.

2. Pork and Apple Burger with Rosemary Potatoes and Mixed Green Salad

We’re used to the sweet and savory combination of pork chops and applesauce, but this dish takes it up a notch by incorporating the fruit into a juicy burger.

3. Portobello Burgers with Avocado, Caramelized Onions, and Spicy Mayo

Tired of eating the same old veggie burger? Yea, us too. That’s why we’ve upgraded the dish with a hearty portobello and tangy tomato jam that’s a zillion times better than boring ketchup.

4. Sriracha Turkey Burger with Sweet Potato Crisps and Mixed Green Salad

It’s safe to say we’re obsessed with sriracha. It’s the perfect all-purpose hot sauce, especially when mixed into a turkey burger and topped with a generous dollop of sriracha mayo.

5. Chimichurri Burger with Avocado, Monterey Jack, and Cabbage Slaw

Chimichurri spice gives this burger an Argentinian flair, and cubed avocado adds an irresistible creaminess. Together, the two make an unbeatable pair.

6. French Onion Soup Burger with Béchamel, Caramelized Onions, and Kale Chips

Our chefs had the ingenious idea to take all the richly satisfying flavors of our favorite French soup and make it into a hamburger. Excuse us while we drool over how divine that sounds.

7. Thai Pork Larb Burger with Cucumber Mint Salad

Get a taste of Thailand without leaving your kitchen thanks to larb, a traditional Northern Thai dish composed of stir-fried ground meat, herbs, and pungent spices. We put an American spin on the dish by transforming it into a burger spiked with fragrant lemongrass, shallots, and mint.

8. Juicy Lucy Burger with Tomato Onion Jam and Baby Gem Lettuce Salad

Minnesota’s decadent burger is piled high with tender ground meet, oozing cheddar cheese, ketchup, and gem lettuce. Let’s just say it’s not for the faint of heart.

I read that you are offering quick and fit versions. How do I find what those menus will look like?

Jordan Schultz says:

Hi Donna! Jordan here, our HelloFresh community team lead. Our “quick” and “fit plans” are actually what we call recipe preferences. So you’d be receiving meals from the regular menu for your box type, but we’ll just make meal choice for you! If you select “fit,” we’ll only choose meals with under 650 calories. If your select “quick,” we’ll only choose meals that take 30 minutes or less to cook. You can see calorie counts and cook time information for each meal on the recipe page of our website.
