What do you like best on your burger? In honor of National Hamburger Month in May, we are asking our readers what's their favorite topping for that grilled delight we all love.
Whether it's just plain ketchup, or something exotic like mango slices and jalapeno, tell us what you love to pile on top of your grilled hamburger (or veggie burger, for all my vegetarian friends).
According to Wikipedia, toppings on hamburgers vary by in this country by region. For example, in Texas they like their burgers with mustard (no ketchup), jalapeno slices and cheese. In the upper Midwest, you'll see a pat of butter on top of the burger. In the Carolina's, the "everything" burger has cheese, onions, chili, mustard and coleslaw. If you are served a hamburger in Hawaii, you might taste the distinctive flavor of teriyaki sauce. East Coast restaurants serve a hamburger most often with lettuce, tomato and onion. Add some sprouts and avocado and you have a California-style burger.
If you are heading up to the Mohegan Sun anytime soon, in honor of National Hamburger Month, will donate $1 for every Crunchburger sold during the full month of May to the Connecticut Food Bank – a private, nonprofit organization that works with corporations, community organizations, and individuals to solicit, transport, warehouse and distribute donated food to more than 650 soup kitchens, shelters, food pantries and the like across Connecticut.
