Burgers are one of the hallmarks of American cuisine. We have watched them progress from humble diner beginnings to elevated status in fine dining. Pretty awesome for a meal you eat with your hands
One of the great things about burgers are their inherent versatility, from the meat (or lack there of ) to the bun to the cooking method. Some folks swear by grilling, and while I like a grilled burger, I prefer a pan cooked burger so that I can toast the bun in the cooking jus.
Wheatsville offers a variety of easy to cook burgers and patties that ready to cook straight out of the package. Poultry has become a huge alternative meat for burgers. This is most likely due to the leaness of chicken and turkey but also allows for some great flavor opportunities.
Housemade Turkey Burgers are one of our top sellers and for good reason. It is reasonably priced and is packed with flavor. A classic pairing of poultry and sage gives it a familiar punch of flavor.
Housemade Chicken Burgers offer another classic southwestern profile of chilis, lime and cilantro and the black pepper really “ties the room together”. We use Serrano chili’s in this recipe, so expect some kick in there. Our turkey is from Norbest, a cooperative of Turkey growers who have been around since the 30’s and is about 90% lean. We use the Tecumseh Farms Smart Chicken in our chicken patties.
*Don’t forget to try out some of our other alternative burger both in the Meat Department and throughout the rest of Wheatsville.
