When you think of a nice burger, what comes to mind? You’ll likely think of a hamburger patty, cheese, lettuce and tomato. However, burgers can sport a lot more variety than that! Over the years, chefs and burger connoisseurs alike have been mixing and matching their burger ingredients to make their tastiest variations of the recipe. That even includes the type of meat used for the patty! There are plenty of options there, but which one is the best? We break it down for you below!
Would it be a true burger meats list without the inclusion of beef? Beef is by far the most popular burger meat to use in your recipe. In fact, at most fast food restaurants, it will be your only option! One of the things that makes hamburger meat stand out from the competition is the ways it can be cooked. Hamburger patties can be cooked the same way as a filet; rare, medium rare, and well done are just some of the options present. If you can find one you like, you can’t go wrong with beef!
While turkey is a bit rarer and more unorthodox than other types of meat on a burger, it’s one of the healthiest options. A typical turkey burger patty only carries around 150 calories, which is far less than its other counterparts. It’s also a great source of protein, selenium and zinc, which are all essential to your body’s development and long-term health. However, because turkey is so lean, a lot of the taste may get cut out. You can be more generous with your toppings here!
One of the most interesting things about a chicken patty is that the name of the burger changes with it! You wouldn’t normally hear the term “chicken burger”; rather, these are referred to as chicken sandwiches. Chicken sandwiches are a lot harder to find than most other types of burgers, but you’ll be treated to a hearty meal if you can get your hands on one. If you’re looking for a healthier chicken sandwich, you’ll be met with a similar problem to turkey burgers; the leanness will affect the taste.
