National Burger Month: The Toppings

Hero Certified Burgers toppings

We’ve been eating burgers our entire lives, so we think we know what we’re talking about. It’s National Burger Month — so you should be eating at least one burger a week during the month of May. Whether you prefer Angus beef, chicken, salmon, turkey or even a veggie burger, as long as it’s between two buns, we’re cool with you. 

We’ve already talked about the proteins, the bread and the cheese, so let’s round out the burger with an essential part: the toppings.

Like every artist, we strive to create pieces that will make someone look twice. In this case, we want people to take more than one bite, and to savour each bite. We want each customer to have an experience that can’t be described in words, an experience that can only be described as a, “You had to be there” experience.

With eight (8) premium toppings plus five cheeses & 16 free condiments and sauces, there are over 10 million ways to make a burger at Hero Certified Burgers. Let’s take a look at a few of our favourites to top your next burger.

Crispy Onions

Sauteed Onions

Whether red or white, sauteed onions are probably the most flavourful and potent topping you can add to a burger. That caramelized touch and crunch make any burger go from good to great. Add them to your burger for only $0.99 extra.

Fried Egg

Fried Egg (Making our EggBurger)

Everyone’s favourite – essentially it’s breakfast on a burger. Eggs are incredibly fulfilling. They are a high protein food… but protein is by far the most fulfilling macronutrient. Eggs are an excellent source of protein, with a single large egg containing 6 grams. Eggs contain all the essential amino acids in the right ratios, so our bodies are well equipped to make full use of the protein in them. So not only are eggs extremely nutritious for you, they taste amazing. Make your burger egg-ceptional for an extra $0.99.




As the major ingredient of guacamole is raw avocado, the nutritional value of the dish derives from avocado vitamins, minerals and fats, providing fiber and Vitamin B. Tangy and sweet, getting that goopy glob of green is always delicious and hey, guacamole is even a great dip for french fries. Add guac to your burger for an extra $0.99.


Portobello Mushrooms

Portobello Mushrooms (Making our Blue Moon Burger)

Since they are grown to a large size, Portobello mushrooms lose some moisture, giving them a meaty texture and earthy taste. As a result of their natural meatiness, Portobello mushrooms are great meat substitutes with no fat, sodium or cholesterol. Pair perfectly with cheese and go great on Angus beef or Grilled Chicken, add these meaty mushrooms for an extra $1.29.

beef bacon

 Bacon (Strip or Beef)

We love bacon. Crispy, chewy and hot, it makes every burger or sandwich better. There are some who just want to eat bacon on bacon on bacon after bacon. While we used to offer 3 types of bacon, we’re down to two now.

Our Strip Bacon is a classic choice and goes nicely with our Canadian Cheddar and Portobello Mushrooms. A classic Banquet Burger. Add Strip Bacon to your burger for $1.29.

For those who don’t like or cannot eat Pork, we have our Beef Bacon, made with: fully-traceable Canadian grass-fed beef  combined with natural hard wood smoke, flaked salt, brown sugar and a dry rub cure. Gluten-free and Halal certified, it’s the perfect solution for beef and bacon lovers because we combined them together. Try our Beef Bacon for an additional $1.49.
