PICKLED ONION BURGER WITH GARLIC AIOLI

CELEBRATING MEMORIAL DAY WITH A GAME-CHANGING BURGER RECIPE


Memorial Day is right around the corner and I can almost smell the neighborhood grills firing up to celebrate the long weekend!  This weekend is the perfect opportunity to kick up your hosting skills a notch and serve your guests something more than just your average burger.  In this recipe, I’ve put a twist on the old classic and added pickled red onions with a garlic aioli sauce creating a flavor combination that is a complete game-changer in my book.

burger recipe

I know what you may be thinking, pickled red onions?  That’s in way over my head or I don’t have time for all that but I can honestly tell you that this recipe is super easy and simple to make.  The pickled red onions take about 5 minutes to throw together and you can do this several days ahead or the night before.   This method is called quick pickling and it’s way less intimidating than the real deal.  

Next up is the garlic aioli sauce.  This is another super easy way to dress up any burger or sandwich.  An aioli sauce traditionally consists of a mayo base, however, you can substitute it for Greek yogurt if you prefer.  Here is a major tip, if you decide to go the mayo route, use REAL mayo! I can’t stress this enough!  Without real mayo, your aioli will be a flop.  I personally like to use Hellman’s Mayonnaise but there are several other brands out there that you can use as well.  All it takes is some garlic, lemon and a little salt and pepper added to your base.  That’s it!  And the thing I love about this recipe is that you can change it up by adding other elements like fresh herbs or make it spicy with wasabi or Sriracha.  There are tons of recipes out there to try.

With these two delicious toppers accompanying your burger, you’ll have a crowd pleaser assembled in no time!  Check out the complete recipe below to get your Memorial Day weekend started off right!

  • Cheers to the season of giving and gathering! I love entertaining during the holidays but what I don’t love is the mess that always follows. This year I’ll be spending more time with my loved ones and less time cleaning up after guests thanks to these Chinet Crystal Cut stemless wine glasses and dessert plates! What are your holiday party plans? #MyChinetParty #sponsored @MyChinet

  • Finally got our tree up and it only took three days...🎄🤪 The first night, we put the tree up and I had to wait for the branches to fall before I could start. 
The second night, I put on the lights and made a wooden bead garland. 
The third day I added the ornaments and these cute little remote control candles. 
Seemed like forever, but it was totally worth it! Have you got your #christmastree up yet? Do you use a faux tree or a real tree?
