Plus, I’m sharing different burger varieties for those who love trying new spins on classic favorites. So whether you’re firing up the grill or cooking indoors, let’s make sure your burgers are always paired with the best sides!

Tips for Making Sides to Serve With Burgers

  1. Use seasonal produce. Take advantage of seasonal vegetables to create fresh, flavorful, and healthy sides to serve with your burgers. It adds variety to your meal and is also more cost-efficient.
  2. Choose make-ahead side dishes. If you’re doing a large cookout, consider a few recipes that can be made a day or two ahead of time so you’re not in the kitchen all day.
  3. Make it a joint effort. You can also ask your guests to bring a side to take some of the cooking off your hands. They will love being a part of the fun day, and it’ll take some pressure off of you.
  4. Have a variety of sides. If you’re planning food for a fun weekend, plan a mix of fresh salads, hearty cold sides, and hot dishes, so there’s something to satisfy everyone’s taste preferences and diet restrictions.
  5. Simple is best! Side dishes don’t have to be complicated. In fact, quick and easy sides for burgers are often the best. They don’t steal the show from the burgers and instead make a wonderful accompaniment in flavor, taste, and texture.

How to Plan a Menu for a Burger Meal

  • Choose your burger patties. Are you doing a traditional beef burger or going with a vegan option like chickpea? Some sides are better paired with salmon burgers rather than beef or poultry, so starting with this will help you gauge what sides to serve with burgers.
  • Select bun options. Choose the type of buns you’ll use for your burgers. Traditional options include hamburger buns, but you can also go with whole wheat buns, brioche, or even lettuce wraps for a low-carb alternative.
  • Plan your condiments. Based on the type of burgers you’re making, have a spread of condiments ready to go. This may include mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard, or something unique like tzatziki.
  • Fresh veggies – Don’t forget to have a nice selection of all traditional and unique vegetable toppings like tomatoes, onions, lettuce, and avocados. They add juiciness, flavor, and texture to your burger.
  • Decide what sides to serve with burgers. This is the fun part. Go through this collection of 47 delicious and healthy sides to serve with burgers and put together a well-balanced meal that has something fresh, hearty, and comforting.

How To Keep Food Warm

  • Oven: As long as you’re not cooking anything in the oven, you can set it to 200°F and store dishes in there to keep them warm.
  • Aluminum foil: If your oven is not free, you can simply use aluminum foil, which has reflective properties that protect the food from light and oxygen. The foil reflects the thermal energy back to the food, which maintains the moisture, flavor, and texture.
  • Crock Pots and Instant Pots: Think of recipes that can be made in your crock pot or instant pot that will keep warm during the cookout. You can even use them to keep foods warm even if you don’t cook in them.
  • Insulated coolers: You can use a cooler to keep food hot as well as cold. The insulation technology that keeps out the heat to maintain cold foods also works to trap heat in and keep food hot for hours at a time. You can even line the cooler with aluminum foil for even better results.

How To Store All the Leftovers

  • Follow the recipe instructions. Some dishes need to be refrigerated immediately, while others are fine to keep at room temperature for a few hours. It’s always best to consider the storage instructions provided in the individual recipe post to ensure food safety and maintain freshness.
  • Store dry and wet foods separately. Store wet foods like sliced tomatoes and onions separately from the cooked burger patties. Same with salads – if possible, serve the salad dressing on the side to keep the salad fresh longer.
  • Freeze for longer storage. Many recipes are freezer-friendly, providing the convenience of having ready-made meals on hand for busy weeknights. Follow the individual recipe recommendations for freezing instructions.
  • Pack a complete meal for your guest. If you’re having a burger cookout with friends, consider creating a well-balanced meal for your guests to take home with them using compartmentalized containers.

Frequently Asked Questions

What can I serve with burgers besides fries?

While potato French fries are traditionally the side of choice, there are many delicious and simple sides to serve with burgers. You can serve baked beans, macaroni and cheese, coleslaw and a simple side salad with burgers instead of fries. You can also try grilled vegetables, onion rings, or corn on the cob for a tasty twist.

If I’m short on time, what are some quick and easy sides for burgers?

Most of these delicious and healthy sides to serve with burgers come together quickly and effortlessly. But, if you’re pressed for time, consider coleslaw (with bagged cabbage) or a simple house salad that comes together in minutes.

How can I make these sides ahead of time for a BBQ or a party?
