Burger Side Dishes
If there's one way of cooking I love more than any other, it's grilling out. Living in Florida, I find any excuse to cook out, no matter what time of year it is! That means making plenty of burgers, and of course, experimenting with good sides for burgers to serve them with.
Like anyone, my family loves a crispy batch of homemade fries on the side, but there are so many more options for what to serve with hamburgers that we like to change things up, too. If you're feeling the same way, this is the perfect list of burger sides for you!
You might be surprised by the options you have when it comes to burger side dishes. There's plenty to love! Find a new favorite, and let me know what you like best in the comments!

Sides with Burgers FAQs
There are many options for what to serve with hamburgers, from classic french fries and potato chips to more unique recipes like bean salad and air-fried vegetables. Pair your burgers with side dishes that suit the toppings you're using for them; for example, a bleu cheese burger would pair well with a salad containing arugula and fruit, like pear slices.
If you want to serve burgers but cut back by serving healthy sides for burgers instead of the typical fries, try air-frying green vegetables, like broccoli or asparagus, instead. Cut out any breading and spray them lightly with oil. If you don't have an air fryer, you can roast them in the oven or saute them.

- Rinse and scrub potatoes, but do not peel. Cut each in half lengthwise.6 medium russet potatoes
- Cut the potato in half again to create 4 wedges.
- Cut the halves in half again to create 8 wedges total. Do this for all potatoes.
- Soak the potatoes in cold water for 10 to 15 minutes. While they soak, preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Combine olive oil, salt, and all seasonings except parsley in a bowl. Drain the potatoes, then dry them with a tea towel or thick paper towel. Place them in the same bowl as the seasonings, toss, and then rub with the seasoning so they are all evenly coated.¼ cup olive oil, 1½ teaspoons paprika, 3 teaspoons garlic powder, 1 teaspoon onion powder or dried green onion, 2 teaspoons salt, 2 teaspoons dried rosemary leaves, freshly ground black pepper
- Arrange the potatoes on the baking sheet, cut-side down. Do not overlap any potatoes or crowd the baking sheet - bake in two batches if necessary. Add to the oven for 20 minutes, then flip them with a spatula and bake for another 10 to 15 minutes, until golden and crispy.
- Remove from oven and top with fresh parsley. Let cool 5 minutes. Serve, and enjoy!
- Be sure to soak the potatoes in cold water. This will get rid of some of their starch, enabling them to become crispy while they bake. If you don't soak them, they won't be as crispy.
- You can make these potato wedges ahead by cutting the potatoes, then soaking them in a bowl of cold water mixed with a little bit of vinegar or lemon juice. This prevents them from turning brown while they wait in the refrigerator.
- The key to crispy baked potato wedges is to only flip them once. Wait until they are golden and crispy on one side, then flip them only once at the 20-30 minute mark.
- Try to use potatoes of roughly the same size so they bake evenly. Keep the wedges uniform when you cut them for the same reason.
- You can also use an air fryer for potato wedges.
- Preheat air fryer to 400°F.
- Cut potatoes into wedges as instructed above.
- Place potato wedges in the basket of the air fryer. Leave a little space between each potato - don't let them overlap.
- Air fry for 10 minutes.
- Open the air fryer and flip each potato wedge.
- Air fry for another 5 minutes or until the potato wedges are nice and crispy.
