Burger with a fried egg on top.

Have you ever ordered a burger with strange toppings? You know, not the typical stuff - like mustard, ketchup, tomatoes, onions, pickles or lettuce - but something like a fried egg.

As we approach National Cheeseburger Day  — September 18th — we're curious about the most unconventional topping you’ve had on a burger in Michigan.

Did you like it? Or... no so much.

Here are three places we found with some out-of-the-ordinary toppings. 

Brome Burgers & Shakes

Located in Dearborn, Michigan, Brome Burger & Shakes is home to 100% organic beef and non-GMO ingredients. Their menu displays various interesting toppings: red onion, aged white cheddar and Mustard Grain Aioli. However, their The Mex burger shown below appears particularly interesting.

It’s topped with corn salsa, cheddar-jack cheese sauce, avocado, chipotle mayo and most interestingly, pickled jalapeno.

Frita Batidos

If you’re in Ann Arbor, look no further for unique burger toppings than Frita Batidos. The chef-driven restaurant is inspired by Cuban culture and Cuban street food. Each burger is called a frita and comes with fries. Except, the fries aren’t served on the side; they’re served on the burger (shown below).

Aside from the fries, other interesting toppings are a sunny side up egg, cilantro-lime salsa, tropical slaw and avocado.

Halo Burger

Originating in Flint, Michigan where it served burgers in a boxcar-style wagon, Halo Burger has become a chain. Diners can order burgers with pickles, mustard and ketchup. But the burger joint’s also known for its Olive Burger that contains -- yup, you guessed it -- olives shown below.
