Independence Day Grilling with SDBIC Director of Nutrition, Holly Swee!

Independence Day celebrations have begun! My family and I celebrate throughout the week, not only for our country’s independence, but also because it lands on or near many other celebrations including a family birthday and anniversary. Although my family and I cook and enjoy a variety of beef meals throughout the work week, we also hold it in high regards for celebrations.

This year we plan to keep our celebrations easy and economical by preparing a delicious burger bar for people to enjoy. I love this concept as it allows family and guests to use a delicious beef burger as a canvas for a delicious escape! I suggest having a variety of toppings, buns and condiments available, but also try having a few different flavor combinations. Guests will have an opportunity to get creative as they build a flavorful burger. The possibilities with toppings are truly endless! Here are a few great topping ideas and suggestions for a burger bar from to get you started.

  • Southern Burger: Pepper Jelly, pimento cheese, fried green tomatoes (or tomatillo salsa) and coleslaw

  • Western Burger: Onion Rings, BBQ sauce, pepper jack cheese and avocado slices

  • Fiery Fiesta Burger: Salsa Verde with grilled poblano and jalapeño, Monterey jack cheese (or sub pepper jack cheese) and tomato

  • Grilled Hawaiian Burger: Grilled pineapple, Swiss cheese, sweet onion and BBQ sauce
