A delicious recipe

Build Your Own Burger, Hot Dog & Sausage Bar

Mix-and-match toppings bars are the easiest way to guarantee everyone at the cookout finds something they like. Whether your guests prefer their burgers, hot dogs and sausages classic, or dressed to the nines, the toppings below will help you take flavor to the next level.


Season your burgers before they even hit the flame with Grill Mates® Burger Mix-Ins. These robust, high-quality sauces, like our signature sweet Brown Sugar Bourbon, can be blended right into your patty mixture. 

Tasty Burger Toppers

Create crunch with flavorful add-ons like Asian-Style Pickled Vegetables. A classic pickling spice blend combined with Asian rice vinegar makes a quick-pickling brine for mixed vegetables. Or experiment with sauces to create big flavor with just a few simple ingredients. You’ll go crazy for the smoky, Southwestern flavor of our two-ingredient Chipotle Mayo. And of course, cool and creamy Guacamole makes everything tastier, especially when it's made with McCormick® Guacamole Seasoning. Lastly, give Grilled Fruits, Veggies and Pickles a shake of your favorite Grill Mates® seasoning and grill for a bold finish.

Don’t forget the basics! Jalapeño peppers, assorted cheeses, lettuce and sliced tomatoes.
