Between patties, buns, toppings, and sauces, there are a lot of components to burgers that you can play with for captions. 

To get attract new followers, make sure to use plenty of hashtags! Search on Instagram using the “Explore” page for a good variety. 

Use some that are really popular (like #burger) and some that are a little more niche, like #baconburger. Using an assortment will make sure that you get good exposure without being buried among the crowd. 

For photos, there’s generally not a ton of color on burgers, especially if they don’t have lettuce or tomato on them. 

So try to focus on the juiciness of the burger in your pictures. They’ll still look really appealing, even if the colors don’t pop. 

But no matter what, make sure to take your photos in plenty of natural light.

Follow these tips, and you’ll be making so many burgers you’re gonna need a bigger grill!
