Elevate Your Burger With an Unusual Slice o’ Cheese

Tomorrow (May 28) is National Hamburger Day (WOOF!) and it’s hard to top a good ol’ classic burger of meat, lettuce, tomato, mayo and/or ketchup and/or mustard.

Topped with a slice of Kraft American cheese, of course.

But since today’s a special occasion and all, why not elevate your burger with a fat slab of artisan cheese instead? Combine that change with subbing your traditional bun for specialty bread and – voila! – you’ve instantly created a new American classic!

What kind of cheese? There’s no wrong answer …

• Fresh mozzarella with a few leaves of basil.
• A creamy European-style cheese with sautéed mushrooms.
• Pepper jack with a smear of guacamole.
• Crumbled bleu … or feta … herbed chevre.

    See? This is EXACTLY what I am wanting today: a delicious burger with a semi-exotic cheese. And possibly some carmelized onions.

    I cant think of a better home made burger than mine.

    I use real bacon bits and use a full jar per two lbs of whatever ground you are going for… i use sirloin mainly.

    patty out the meat mixed up with the bacon bits, already your burger is going to be awesome.

    then grab HAVARTI cheese, top with extra crispy onion rings and your favorite bbq sauce.

    i mainly use just plain sunbeam hamburger buns but these are amazing on a hawaiian bun with a slice of grilled pineapple too.
