For your 4th of July or any summer party consider hosting a Build Your Own Burger party! It’s not only easy on you as the host, but your guests, young and old, will love it too.
For the 4th of July, we usually spend the day lounging and playing lawn games at my parent’s home. But, while family is in town Tom and I make sure to have everyone over for dinner at our house one night. A couple years ago we did a build your own burger night that was a huge hit.
I love build your own parties because it makes cooking and set up so easy. You can choose how involved to make the Build Your Own Burger Bar. During the week you could simply do frozen burgers with the most basic toppings. For a party, you can go all out and have 50 of the most exotic toppings you can possibly think of.
For our 3rd of July party, we went somewhere in the middle. Not the full list, but enough so everyone could build a completely unique burger just how they like it.
Here are over 50 topping ideas for your next build your own burger bar party!
