The Perfect Burger Comes with a Sesame Seed Bun, Ketchup and Bacon

70% of Americans are confident they can cook a good burger.  But what goes ON your burger might matter even more.  78% of people say the toppings can make or break a burger.  And one in three think it’s the MOST important part.

Someone polled people in all 50 states to find out what the “perfect” burger looks like.  Here are the results . . .

1.  America’s favorite burger toppings in order are:  Cheese, bacon, lettuce, raw onions, and tomatoes in fifth place.  No mention of pickles.

2.  46% also said their perfect burger would need to have ketchup.  And 43% said the same about mayo.  Fewer people like mustard.

3.  What’s our favorite type of cheese?  A third said American goes best on a burger.

4.  What about the bun?  Sesame-seed ranked first with 24% of the vote.

5.  Seven out of 10 people said the perfect burger would also need to come with a side of fries.  And this might be controversial, but POTATO WEDGES were voted the best type of fry to pair with a burger.
