The next time you decide to make hamburgers, consider your burger bun options beyond the standard sesame seed or plain white bun for your burger.
- Ciabatta roll: This thick and sturdy Italian-style bread provides excellent structure for even the juiciest burgers.
- English muffin: This round and sturdy muffin seems as if it was made for burgers but make sure you toast it slightly first.
- Kaiser roll: Easily found in your supermarket bakery department, its soft fluffy interior is the perfect vehicle for juicy backyard burgers.
- Onion roll: Also easily found in your local supermarket, the onion roll provides a zesty accompaniment to any burger by adding a bit of character.
- Potato roll: By far, the softest and fluffiest of all burger buns.
- Pretzel roll: Perfectly salty and chewy, this bun takes burger buns to the next level.
- Sliced bread: The original burger bun. Breads with a denser texture hold up well to thicker patties.

Everyone loves a big juicy burger. And, you’d be hard pressed to find a better topping than a delicious piece of cheese. Most people have their preference of cheese, American, cheddar, blue, etc. Me, I like them all and sometimes I’ll combine a few just to make it interesting. Here’s a list of six cheeses that will make the most of your burgers.
- Cheddar By far, the most popular behind American cheese. It holds up well to strong flavors like bacon and barbecue sauces and melts beautifully.
- Blue There are a wide variety of blue cheeses: gorgonzola, stilton, Shropshire blue and the like. While some are more pungent than others, these are all typically salty and, quite frankly, stinky but delicious. These work well with a sweet/savory component.
- Monterey Jack One of the best melting cheeses and thanks to its mild flavor, can handle a variety of different flavor combos.
- Goat This tangy, crumbly cheese is a lighter burger type cheese.
- Smoked Gouda This cheese pairs perfectly with smoky barbecue sauce and adds a decadent touch to burgers. Also works well with spicy touches like horseradish.
- Brie This cheese handles a variety of tasks. From topping burgers to topping turkey sandwiches this should be a go-to. it works especially well with sliced apples and carmalized onions.

Freshness First – The Importance of Using Fresh Ingredients in Cooking
Every time you cook, you automatically reach for that can of veggies, fruits or preserved meat for your dish. Whether it is for yourself and your family, or your guests, your cooking almost always includes processed ingredients straight from the freezer or sealed packet. The fault of using processed or frozen ingredients lies not in the cooking style, but in the lifestyle. We simply do not have the time to search for and buy fresh ingredients every day.
In that process, we are jeopardizing our health and wealth. If you are a fan of canned food or eating out of the box, here are a few reasons that will make you choose fresh ingredients over processed ones.
Freshness for health
Fresh ingredients are always better for preparing healthy food, when compared to processed ingredients. Fresh ingredients are basically those that haven’t been exposed to chemicals or processed in any way to increase their shelf life. They have to be consumed on the same day or within a day or two. Fresh ingredients, including fresh vegetables, meat, spices like basil, cilantro, tomatoes, garlic also retain their nutritious value when you cook them right. Unlike processed foods, they are pure and not adulterated in any way, by exposure to preservatives and other such chemicals.
Food cooked with fresh ingredients is healthier than food cooked with processed ingredients or those stored using preservatives.
Fresh ingredients for better tasting food
When it comes to taste, nothing can beat fresh ingredients. The flavor in the food you cook is best when you use fresh ingredients – whether it is succulent meat, fresh produce, basil that is freshly grown in your own yard, ripe tomatoes from the plant you grew in your window – all of them taste a lot better fresh than preserved. At Vicky’s Restaurants we use fresh ingredients, come try us out and you will agree that food tastes better with fresh ingredients.

Sarah A. from Riverside shares:
What a wonderful place for a great meal!
This restaurant is family and locally owned. The food is amazing. The inside and outside is clean spic and span never dirty. The prices are perfect for the amount of delicious food served by smiling faces.
This establishment is VERY involved in the community and sponsors our local high school Patriot football GO WARRIORS! with a program called Warrior Wednesday. All anyone has to do is mention WARRIOR WEDNESDAY when placing order and/or paying, then the restaurant will match 10% of your entire bill. Very generous! We go several times a month and everything we have ever eaten from the homemade potato soup to the breakfast burrito to the Greek salads to the bacon avocado cheeseburger. I could go on and on. Beyond fabulous. Get there now!

Love this place! I’ve been here several times, mostly for breakfast, but everything I’ve ordered has been delicious. I like coming here because I always get great service and the food tastes more homemade than other fast food restaurants. Tonight I got the Greek Chicken salad and it was amazing!

Here are the 10 reasons you should eat more local food:
- Supports local farms: Buying local food keeps local farms healthy and creates local jobs at farms and in local food processing and distribution systems.
- Boosts local economy: Food dollars spent at local farms and food producers stay in the local economy, creating more jobs at other local businesses.
- Less travel: Local food travels much less distance to market than typical fresh or processed grocery store foods, therefore using less fuel and generating fewer greenhouse gases.
- Less waste: Because of the shorter distribution chains for local foods, less food is wasted in distribution, warehousing and merchandising.
- More freshness: Local food is fresher, healthier and tastes better, because it spends less time in transit from farm to plate, and therefore, loses fewer nutrients and incurs less spoilage.
- New and better flavors: When you commit to buy more local food, you’ll discover interesting new foods, tasty new ways to prepare food and a new appreciation of the pleasure of each season’s foods.
- Good for the soil: Local food encourages diversification of local agriculture, which reduces the reliance on monoculture—single crops grown over a wide area to the detriment of soils.
- Attracts tourists: Local foods promote agritourism—farmers’ markets and opportunities to visit farms and local food producers help draw tourists to a region.
- Preserves open space: Buying local food helps local farms survive and thrive, keeping land from being redeveloped into suburban sprawl.
- Builds more connected communities: Local foods create more vibrant communities by connecting people with the farmers and food producers who bring them healthy local foods. As customers of CSAs and farmers markets have discovered, they are great places to meet and connect with friends as well as farmers.
