Who likes burgers? Uhhh, everyone? So much in fact, that there’s a whole realm of burgers for people who don’t even eat meat. While meaty burgers get all of the spotlight, I’m willing to guess that there are just as many veggie burger recipes (if not MORE) out there than meaty ones by now — plus I still get all of the topping choices of regular burgers when building my veggie burger. I call that a total win. While Michigan isn’t known for any particular type of burger (we only really have that distinction with Coney dogs), I like to make my personal burgers stand out to convince meat eaters (like Josh) that they’re just as good, if not better, when you dress `em up properly.
I always, ALWAYS like my veggie burgers a little burnt (because I’m weird) and 80% of the time, I actually take them the standard way with ketchup, mustard, pickles, lettuce, and tomato. But sometimes you just want something a little fancier, right? I like to grill fresh pineapple alongside my burger to create a sweet and savory combo with BBQ sauce. I’ve also been known to open a jar of sauerkraut and cover my burger with thousand island dressing and serve on a rye bun.
Why am I talking about burgers (besides the obvious delicious factor?) Private Selection (R) brand, which is a premium private-label brand available at the Kroger family of stores, is running a Burger Nation Sweepstakes on their Burger Nation microsite to win a Weber® Summit® E-670™ Gas Grill (an absolutely massive one! Big enough for a meat side and a vegetarian side, like we do in my house since Josh occasionally eats meat). While on the site, you’ll notice a map on the left side — when you click on a region, it’ll be covered in pins of different burgers from all over the USA, pretty cool and great inspiration for your burger toppings! Add a pin yourself to Make Your Grill Mark on Burger Nation! Go check out the Store Locator and find a local store where you can get a variety of gourmet quality cheeses, bakery items, desserts, baking/cooking ingredients and even meats (if you’re into that sort of thing) . All the best fixings to build your perfect burger + some dessert on the side.
Speaking of dessert, when you head over to their site, you can print off a coupon for a free mason jar dessert after you enter the sweepstakes. They come in 10 flavors like cherry crumble, peanut butter and chocolate brownie, and salted caramel cheesecake. You’ll want to check out the Official Rules, though I have part of the disclaimer at the bottom of this post. Be sure to Like Private Selection® on Facebook and Follow Private Selection® on Pinterest to keep up with all the burger action this summer!
