Burger Bash

A Culinary Icon

This summer, spice up your favorite burger with premium seasoning blends from Bellingham’s Spice Hut. Grab one of our specially made spice packets to mix into your ground meat, or pick up a few of our convenient pressed and seasoned patties from your Haggen meat counter. Our meats are ground fresh right in our store for the freshest, most flavorful burgers you’ll find anywhere.

8 Tips to Patty Perfection

  1. Carefully combine seasoning with ground meat. Gentle handling keeps the burger tender.
  2. Shape the meat into a large square and cut into 4 perfect portions.
  3. Flatten each section into a 3/4″ thick patty.
  4. Lightly sprinkle each patty with salt and pepper.
  5. Form a dimple in the middle of each patty. This prevents it from bulging when cooking.
  6. Grill 4 minutes per side for medium doneness. Insert thermometer into the side of the patty to ensure it reaches 165°F.
  7. Do not press the burger with a spatula—it releases the juices.
  8. Top each burger with cheese and grill for about a minute, then serve!
