It's National Hamburger Month!

May is National Hamburger Month AND National BBQ Month. That's an exciting 30 days! Keep an eye on our social feeds and blog, where we'll be sharing tips and recipes for using one-of-a-kind 1 Source ground beef to make you the star of any backyard burger cook-off.

In honor of BBQ month, our first tip is a fun way to amp up your favorite BBQ sauce. This fruity twist is super easy - just blend ½ c. of BBQ sauce with ¼ c. of fruit, and voila! Instant upgrade! You can use fresh or frozen fruit, just thaw and drain if you're using a frozen variety. Here are some that we like:

  • Mangoes
  • Pineapple
  • Peaches
  • Berries of all kinds
  • Dark cherries

If you like a little spice with your sweet, blend in a chipotle pepper or adobo sauce for some smoky heat. Fresh or pickled jalapeños will also give your sauce a nice kick. Mixing and matching to find your perfect combo is half the fun!

What else is sure to add some fun to National Hamburger Month? We'll be playing Burger Bingo all month long! Download your Bingo card here or take a snapshot from our social feeds and watch our stories for more deets on contest rules and prizes. We can't wait to see your entries!
