May has so much going for it: Mother’s Day, May flowers, the unofficial start of summer—and hamburgers. That’s right: May is National Hamburger Month, and Kikkoman helps you get the cookout started with tools and tips for making every burger better. Take this recipe for an Umami Burger, for example. Your taste buds will thank you.
The hamburger may be America’s favorite sandwich. In fact, when we fire up the grill, 73% of the time it’s because we’re making burgers! With all that burger-building, we’ll need more than just mustard and ketchup to keep our taste buds on their toes—which is where the umami goodness of Kikkoman Soy Sauce comes in. Its savory flavor works magic on any burger—beef, poultry, veggie and beyond. In fact, check out this Hearty Bean Burger for a nice alternative to meat.
It isn’t “all burgers, all the time” in May. This also happens to be National Egg Month, and there’s no better way to show the egg some love and reward the number-one mom in your life than with a breakfast of del-egg-table dishes. Sweet or savory, they’re even more impressive when made with Kikkoman Panko Breadcrumbs and Unsweetened Pearl Organic Soymilk.
Kikkoman has been working with Latina bloggers to recreate traditional recipes with a Kikkoman sauce. Last month, after a tough competition, we selected our top three winners who received a trip to Kikkoman headquarters in San Francisco.
