Great Picnic Food Ideas for Hamburgers
When you think of a picnic, what dish immediately comes to mind? For some, it is a sandwich. For others, it is a nice, juicy steak off of the grill. For many, though, the first thing to come to mind is a delicious grilled hamburger with all of the trimmings. There are tons of terrific ways to cook a mean hamburger. While they are all great, my two favorite ones are given below.
The two picnic food ideas for hamburgers in this article will offer you two perspectives on a burger from two different types of cuisine: Western and Asian. Both promise to be extremely delicious!
Picnic Food Ideas: Bacon Ranch Burger
This is one of the best hamburgers, in my opinion, because it has a lot of bold flavor that attacks your taste buds and makes your mouth water. The ranch really combines with the bacon flavor (as well as the tomato juice undertones) to give you a tasty and robust flavor. To make this delicious hamburger, you will need the following ingredients:
– Enough ground chuck meat for 4-5 hamburger patties
– 2 ½ tablespoons of dry bread crumbs
– 2 tablespoons of grated purple onion
– 1/3 tablespoon of garlic powder
– Ranch dressing
– 2 ½ teaspoons of Worchestershire sauce
– 2 tablespoons of tomato juice
Before you use the meat, I would recommend marinating it in your marinade of choice. Take your hamburger meat and add to it your onion, garlic, tomato juice, bread crumbs, and Worchestershire sauce. Form this meat into 4-5 hamburger patties and add salt and pepper if you wish. Then, grill your hamburgers as you normally would. Cook the bacon and add it to the hamburger, then add ranch dressing. Toasted sesame seed buns go great with this burger, as do your typical hamburger dressings. For added flavor, add BBQ sauce and onion straws to the mix.
Picnic Food Ideas: Teriyaki Burgers
This hamburger recipe takes a burger in a bit of a different direction than your typical meal, and adds a distinct Asian flavor to the meat that will provide you with a unique – and delicious – taste. If you think an Asian-flavored hamburger is a bit out there, just wait until you try it! For this recipe you will need the following:
– Enough lean ground beef for 6 patties
– 2 eggs
– 1 cup of dry bread crumbs
– 1 1/3 tablespoon of sugar
– 2 1/3 tablespoon of soy sauce
– 1 tablespoon of teriyaki sauce
– ¼ teaspoon of ginger
– ¼ cup of water
– 1 tablespoon of garlic powder
– ¼ teaspoon of sesame oil (optional)
The preparation for this picnic meal is pretty straightforward. Take your beef and add to it the ingredients listed above. Mix well and form 6 patties. Then, either grill or broil your hamburger patties until they are thoroughly cooked. This teriyaki burger goes best on a sweet bun roll, and tastes great when paired with any traditional grilled side item.
