Is there anything more American than the cheeseburger? Simmer down, Apple Pie. I haven’t forgotten you.
When I think, “backyard barbecue,” I think burgers. When I think, “road trip,” I think burgers. In fact, I don’t even need a reason, I love
thinking dreaming about gooey, cheesy burgers.
Megan Steintrager, editor at Gourmet Live compiled all the greasy data needed to locate the world’s best “American style” cheeseburger. And you’ll never guess where she found it. Hint: It’s not in America.
Head over to Family Kitchen, watch The World’s BEST Burger! and tell me all about your favorite burger!

My go to burger is just basic – beef patty, sometimes with bacon and cheese, and topped with yellow mustard, onions, dill pickles and hot peppers. And always, always, always fully cooked, since underdone ground beef is just too dangerous to eat. I kind of prefer burgers that are not so sloppy the bun falls apart but a good bun is critical because even plain old ordinary burger can disintegrate an inadequate hamburger bun.
For a more gourmet experience the local chain Relish (reslishyou.ca) offers up a choice of Angus beef, turkey or veggie burgers with really good toppings and sides. Such as the Cabo Diablo topped with house -made tomato jalapeno salsa & guacamole, sour cream & hot sauce. Good stuff.
It’s hard to get a good burger in Waterland (county north of Amsterdam, Netherlands), so I make mine myself.
8 oz. of ground beef, add a teaspoon of salt (and a teaspoon of smoked paprika or liquid smoke if you don’t have a smokey barbecue at hand), shape it into a 6 inch patty and grill until medium-well done (shorter if you’re hungrier).
Butter the buns and leave them on the grill until they’re browned.
Caramelize some onions with some butter in a frying pan.
Spread some mustard on the bottom bun.
Mix up equal parts of relish, mayo and ketchup and spread about a tablespoon on both bun halves.
Pile on the patty, pickle slices, thin slices of tomato and some lettuce (and some almost crispy bacon if that’s nearby. Mind you, the neighbor’s fridge is considered nearby).
And some mojo if I’m feeling funky. Mojo (Spanish J there) is like mayonnaise, but roasted red bell pepper and roasted garlic instead of egg yolk. Canary islands-men are nuts for it.
Hi, I am German and I had eaten my best Burger in Netherland in Vacation.
Ketchup, majo, tomatos, lettuce, large beef patty, crispy bacon, egg sunny side up, gouda cheese and Cocktailsauce in a bun. Delicious.

Wow, Tina! That’s a loaded burger! Sounds great :)
Two Bells Tavern in Seattle has the best burger I have ever tried in the world. 27 years later, living across the globe and I still get cravings…you gotta be 21 to get in!
