Did you know that hamburgers don’t always have to be served with lettuce, tomato, and ketchup?

It’s easy to get creative and add unique and flavorful toppings that aren’t so common to your next hamburger. The template of meat and a bun allows for endless variety, and you can go crazy based on the flavors that you enjoy.

Here are five suggestions for burger toppings that you might not have heard of, but that you might love.


While it might be hard to picture this Middle Eastern delicacy being served on a burger, the combination of the meat along with the hummus is perfect. It’s even better if you add a vegetable like cucumber or tomato.

Peanut Butter & Jelly

Combining two classic sandwiches in one? Is this sacrilege? Although a PB&J burger might sound strange, the combination between sweet and savory will have your taste buds singing for joy.

Grilled Pineapple

If pineapple can work on pizza, why not on a hamburger? While grilling the beef patty, slap a thick slice of pineapple on the grill as well, and add it to the finished product. You’ll be surprised at how well it works.


The rich, savory, and creamy flavor of guacamole is another exciting addition to your favorite burger. You can try it with another compliment such as hot sauce or pepper jack cheese to give your burger a south-of-the-border vibe.

Garlic Confit

Garlic confit is made by frying whole garlic cloves in lots of oil until they are meaty. After this, the magic is ready to happen. Spread your garlic confit onto the bun and marvel in just how tasty this can be.
