Your favorite cheeseburger cheese

Discussion in 'Beef' started by whistlepig, Jan 7, 2012.

  1. I smoked my first burgers a couple of weeks ago and really liked 'em smoked. I was just wondering what kind of cheeses are good to try. I like Swiss, Provolone, and American cheese on my burgers. That's my total experience with cheese on burgers. There hundreds of different types of cheese to try and was wanting to try something new and was looking for some suggestions here.

    Try pepper jack!  Only cheese I don't like on burgers is any type of blue cheese or very soft cheeses like Edam  Oh yea  Smoked Gouda is great

    I love a good cheddar or pepper jack. Also like to add jalopeno's to the burger with the pepper jack. If you are grilling them cracked black pepper topped with blue cheese is amazing.

    I use Kraft Black Label Extra Sharp Cheddar and Cooper Sharp American. I like Port Wine Wispride Spread as well. Brie is supposed to be good but I never tried it and as far as Blue veined cheese goes Stilton is my first choice...JJ
  7. I use a good well aged Cheddar cheese -- my twist on this is to mix the cheese with the meat to make what I would say is a 'real' cheeseburger [​IMG]   and not a piece of cheese on a burger [​IMG]

    Try Gouda.

    Nice smokey flavor to it that will compliment the burgers. 

    If you want to take it a step farther... Burger topped ( or stuffed ) with leftover pulled pork, bbq sauce gouda, onion and a bun. Its a good pairing. 
  10. Habanero Cheddar!

  11. I ordered a Stufz burger maker today .Looks like pepper jack is leading the pack right now. I did some cheese research tonight and pepper jack does go very well with jalapenos. I do like jalapenos. I'm trying to go back to basics. Get the cheese and meat right and then go on from there.

    Colby Jack for the family Pepper jack for me.  It all depends on the toppings if you ever add Avacado you need to try a queso fresco with it.
