American Burger Recipe with Microplants

You can definitely create a delicious American burger with a healthy twist using microgreens to add freshness and texture. Here’s a simple recipe for a classic American burger with the use of microgreens:


  • For the bun:
    • 4 burger buns
  • For the burger:
    • 500g of beef or pork (or a combination of both)
    • Salt and pepper, to taste
    • 4 slices of cheese (cheddar, gouda, or your preference)
    • 4 lettuce leaves
    • 4 slices of tomato
    • 4 slices of red onion
    • 4 teaspoons of mayonnaise
    • 4 teaspoons of ketchup
    • Microgreens (e.g., arugula microgreens or chives microgreens)


  1. Prepare the burgers: Shape the meat into four patties, sized to fit the burger buns. Season them with salt and pepper.
  2. Cook the burgers: You can grill the burgers, use a grill pan, or bake them in the oven. Cook them to your desired doneness (for medium or well-done), flipping them on both sides. In the last few minutes of cooking, place a slice of cheese on top of each burger and allow it to melt slightly.
  3. Assemble the burgers: Slice the burger buns in half and lightly toast them in the oven or on the grill. Then, start assembling the burgers. On the bottom half of the bun, place a lettuce leaf, a slice of tomato, and a thin slice of red onion.
  4. Place the cheese-topped burger on top of the vegetables.
  5. On the top half of the bun, add a teaspoon of mayonnaise and a teaspoon of ketchup.
  6. For a fresh and colorful touch, sprinkle microgreens (such as arugula or chives microgreens) over the cheese-covered burger.
  7. Place the top half of the bun over all the ingredients.
  8. Serve the burgers immediately, alongside French fries or a green salad.

These American burgers with microgreens will bring a touch of freshness and texture, making them healthier and even more delicious. Enjoy!
