Frequently Asked Questions

How to Store Leftover Peanut Butter Burgers

Refrigerate any leftover peanut butter bacon burger in an airtight container for up to 5 days. These burgers store easily. We recommend storing all the ingredients separately. Then when you are ready to serve, you can easily build your burger with fresh ingredients.

What is the Best Beef to Use for Burgers?

The best beef to use for burgers is ground chuck. We like to use ground chuck that is 80/20. Which means that the beef is 80% lean meant and 20% fat. Using ground chuck makes the perfect burgers that are juicy and flavorful.

What Type of Peanut Butter do use?

We like using creamy peanut butter. But you can easily use any nut butter that you prefer.
