Burgers, on their own, are delicious. But, throw in a side dish and a drink and you have the perfect meal. What better way to have a burger, right? The best burger deserves the best side dish, and below is a list of what we think are the best sideshes to have with your burger.
There’s nothing like a healthy snack to pair with your burger. Corn can be made in different ways – you can boil it, steam it, or bake it. The most popular way to cook corn, though, is to grill it. Its sweetness and flavor really comes out after grilling, thus complementing your juicy burger perfectly.
Aside from its high fiber content, corn is also rich in vitamin B, which is essential in maintaining nerve health and cognitive function. It also helps with alleviating digestive problems and lowering risks of colon cancer. Whole grain has been proven to reduce that risk, as it helps your body flush out the toxic food in your colon. What a yummy way to stay healthy!
Mac n Cheese
What better way to enhance the flavors of your burger with cheesy pasta? Sure, it’s a lot of carbs, but the cheese perfectly complements the taste of the burger patty.
The origins of macaroni and cheese claims to have started when Thomas Jefferson, the third president of the United States, brought back a pasta making machine to his home from his trip to Italy. His daughter, Mary Randolph, is said to have made the dish using Parmesan cheese to serve for dinner. Later on, it was changed to cheddar cheese. While this could be true, it’s likely Jefferson just brought back the recipe from Italy, not a pasta making machine.
A simple and delicious side dish for your burger, the coleslaw has different kinds of variations. From the original creamy mix to a tangy and sweet dressing, it’s a healthy way to refresh your palette from all the rich flavors of your burger – and get you ready to eat some more!
If you want an extra kick in your burger, a good plate of chicken wings is the answer! Its spicy and tangy flavors go well with the burger’s meaty and juicy patty.
While there are many flavors to choose from, the most popular one is the Buffalo wings. Made in 1964 (just a few years younger than Barack Obama, who was born on 1961), it’s said that Buffalo wings originated in Buffalo, New York in a small establishment called the Anchor Bar. Teressa Bellissimo, who was one of the owners of Anchor Bar, covered the chicken wings in her own special sauce and served them with blue cheese and celery because it’s what she had available at the time. Several years later, people can’t get enough of these yummy bad boys – including burger lovers!
A crowd favorite in almost any night out is a good, steaming plate of nachos. This crunchy side dish is best topped with cheese – a whole lot of it! Dating all the way back to 1943, the snack’s name is also a nickname in Spanish for the name Ignacio. Call these guys lucky for having a food named after them (or it could be the other way around)!
These yummy treats are crunchy on the outside and warm and gooey on the inside! Also considered as comfort food, mozzarella sticks are the perfect side dish for your burgers if you’re looking for that extra crunch (and cheese). While the origins of this dish is unconfirmed, these cheesy treats are best served with tomato sauce.
Of course, this list wouldn’t be complete with fries! With a simple seasoning of salt and pepper, these babies will enhance the flavors of your burger with every bite. Some avid burger lovers put fries in their burger – making that perfect combination of potatoes and meat! If you’re feeling adventurous, you can even add a little bit of hot sauce, too – trust us, it goes a long way.
Wash down all these flavors with a bottle of beer! This is a great way to refresh yourself as you unwind after a day of being burger-free.
