Burgers are every bit as American as hot dogs or apple pie. Everywhere you travel in these great United States, you’ll find local interpretations on what makes for the best burger toppings and flavor combinations.

Now Private Selection® and the Kroger Family of Stores have teamed up and are inviting customers to share their favorite toppings and taste combinations on their Burger Nation microsite and to “Make Your Grill Mark on the Nation.” Private Selection® offers artisan-inspired gourmet-quality meats, cheeses, desserts and cooking ingredients.

My Burgers Are NEVER Boring

While a burger can be fairly simple, I’ve found that layering and the right combination of ingredients is the secret to burger success. The latest original burger creation to come out of my kitchen is the Turkey Burger with sun-dried tomatoes and minced onions. Pan-fried in Worcestershire sauce, it’s served on a toasted pretzel bun and topped with crispy, thick-cut bacon and crunchy peanut butter.

Out. Of. This. World. Crazy. Good. It has just the right amount of sweet and savory, and overloaded with contrasting textures.
