Make cheeseburgers at home: If you have all the ingredients- great! If not- why not pop to the shops (don’t forget your mask) and pick up all the things you need to make the best burger at home from scratch? If you don’t make them too often, your family will be delighted at a change in the repertoire, and if you do but always take the easy route with premade patties, it’s a new challenge for you!

Veganise or veggienise your burger: If you’re vegan or veggie, why not partake in the day by cooking up a veggie storm and then post your plant based alternative on social media? Show your followers and friends that burgers can be enjoyed by people of all dietary preferences. There are plenty of ready made ones to choose from in the supermarkets, or you could make your own. 

Eat a burger made by someone else: If your schedule doesn’t permit some time in the kitchen today- go to your favourite burger joint and tuck in! Whether this is from a big chain or a local independent restaurant, enjoy every last bite!

Have a burger picnic: Get your burger to take out and find a scenic spot to eat it- this might involve a little drive somewhere in your car, or a walk to your local park. You could even spread out a blanket in your garden if it’s dry and munch it on the grass. Who says you have to eat it at the table?!

Invite people over for burgers: If you are bubbling with a couple of other people (social distance rules still apply folks)- why not invite them over for some burgers with all the trimmings? Save them from having to cook for an evening and catch up on the day’s events over this crowd pleaser.   

Get creative: If you always have the same burger with the same sauce and the same sides every time you cook this dish, you could change things up. Try sweet potato fries instead of regular ones, try making your own burger sauce or make one from scratch using a different mince. You don’t have to stick to the tried and tested, so give your burger a makeover!

Make it alfresco: If the weather permits- dust off your BBQ and enjoy your burgers from the comfort of your own garden or back yard. Burgers taste so much better when they have been grilled in the outdoors don’t you think?

Happy National Double Cheeseburger Day!
