International Burger Day 2022

Today is a good day, not just because it’s a beautiful Saturday but because it’s International Burger Day! Celebrated every year on 28 May, taking part in this celebratory day is one of the easiest, most delicious, guilt-free things…all you need to do is enjoy a juicy burger.

Yup, it’s that easy! Host a braai with family or friends where everyone can build their own signature bun, or go out to one of your favourite burger joints and try something new. Although beef patties are classic, there are so many other options available like chicken, vegan ‘meat’, chickpea, veggie and portobello mushroom burgers.  We’ve rounded up seven of our favourite recipes that are fit for any and every kind of burger fan for you to celebrate International Burger Day.
