What goes with home made burgers?

I'm making home made burgers for dinner tonight and need something really nice to go with them.

I'm a bit bored of basic food like chips, and want to get something nice to complement the meal. I'm going to the shops a bit later, any suggestions?What goes with home made burgers?
The easiest way to make home made potato wedges:

Slice washed potatoes into wedges, put in bowl; toss with some olive oil %26amp; 1 pkg dry Onion Soup Mix. Spread out on foil lined cookie sheet %26amp; bake at 425 until desired crispiness. Easy %26amp; a hit!

You can also grill corn on the cob while you have the grill going for the burgers, just remove the silky hairs first. Or even grill other veggies - zucchini, yellow squash, onions, tomatoes, eggplant.

And a great grill dessert - grilled fruit %26amp; ice cream. Sprinkle fruit (pineapple, plums, peaches, pears) with a little brown sugar %26amp; pepper, then place on grill. Serve warm with ice cream.
Home fries! Sounds crazy but its totally awesome!What goes with home made burgers?

Potato salad. Instead of pickles in the salad, add some HP pickled onions chopped up in addition to the onions that are added fresh. You may need to add a pinch or two of white sugar or honey to this to get the correct balance of sweet to sour ratio.

Boiled, mashed and buttered "Swedes" which is the root veggie known as Rutabaga's to us in the States.

You could top your burgers with a cooked Banger too. That is always good. What I call a "Double Dutch"What goes with home made burgers?
A few items come to mind, here is what I like to serve with burgers:

Baked chipotle fries or pepper fries or bourbon baked beans. Find them at:鈥?/a>

Also, I like to serve cole slaw with burgers, find recipes for asian style slaw, napa cabbage salad or blue cheese cole slaw at:鈥?/a>
If you want to stick with the BBQ theme then i would go for Potato salad or pasta salad, you can make your own potato wedges by cutting a potato into big chunks, sprinkle some fry salt and oil over it mix it together, you can bake it at 425 for 45 mins or microwave them for 3 minutes and putting them on the grill. They are really good!

I love double fudge brownies with fudge frosting after a hearty burger.A scoop of vanilla ice cream goes well with it too.
great hamburger

This is a basic but great hamburger with the bacon and onion right inside the patty. You can also add cheese to the filling or top it off with a nice slice.


1 1/2 pounds ground round

1/2 cup cooked and minced bacon

1/2 cup bar-b-que sauce (your favorite flavor)

1 small minced onion or 2 tablespoons of dried minced onion

Any of your favorite toppings for hamburger


Mix ingredients together. Shape into patties and grill over prepared grill until done. Top with steak sauce such as A1 or Heinz or just plain ketchup and mustard will do.

Served well with baked beans ,corn on the cob and coleslaw

I also like to make green been casserole with burger. It actually goes much better with burgers then turkey.
