Hello, sweet summertime! I think we can all agree that summer brings happy memories for us all – from beach vacations to dining al fresco. While summer may look a little different this year, we can still enjoy it to the fullest even if it means together at home.
This Portobello bun burger bar is perfect for summer nights outdoors with your family that meets a range of dietary preferences and needs. Everything you need to put it together can be found at ALDI, which offers fresh, affordable ingredients to prepare everything for your summer at-home festivities without breaking the bank.
Build-Your-Own Veggie Bun Burger Bar
ALDI has all the summer meal essentials we know and love for less, from premium meats to fresh and frozen seafood to festive beverages and fresh organic produce. Build your burger bar with lean beef patties or have meat alternatives available from the award-winning ALDI exclusive Earth Grown line – like Kale Veggie Burgers and Quinoa Crunch Veggie Burgers.
Cheese is also a good source of protein and the Happy Farms Deli Sliced Cheese from ALDI comes in a wide variety from Swiss, Provolone and Colby to Muenster, Mild Cheddar and Pepper Jack.
Now is be the best time to add more veggies into your diet when an abundance of fresh produce is in season! Bring out the best flavors of fresh vegetables by throwing them on the grill. Portobello mushroom caps make for a great naturally gluten-free bun and are lower in calories and carbohydrates and a good source of fiber, vitamins and minerals.
Assemble your classic toppings like tomatoes, onions and lettuce but also get creative with seasonal options like grilled sliced pineapple, sautéed mushrooms and guacamole.
Condiments add a lot of flavor for not a lot of calories. At ALDI, find Burman’s Yellow Mustard and Mayonnaise as well as Simply Nature Organic Ketchup and Great Gherkins Sweet Bread & Butter Sliced Pickles.
Don’t forget beverages! Celebrate the summer with award-winning ALDI wines, many of which are under $10. My favorites are the Espritza Sparkling Rosé and White Wine, which conveniently come in cans. Don’t forget to include the kiddos with mocktails made with ALDI Nature’s Nectar Orange Juice mixed with fresh in-season fruit like strawberries and blueberries.
