How To Build a Better Cheeseburger

Burgers. We all love ’em, right? And with the summer season underway, we can expect to eat a lot of hamburgers.

While there’s something to be said for sticking with the classics, sometimes you feel like shaking up the burger routine. Go ahead – get adventurous! The burger makes an excellent blank canvas (try a buffalo burger for the patty). Here are some ideas for using cheese to take the great American burger from humble to haute.

Cheese, Please!

Getting tired of that same old slice? Try using cheeses with a little panache.

  • English Stilton or Roquefort add a tangy kick.
  • Fontina, havarti and gouda are buttery, smooth and melt beautifully on burgers.
  • Craving creamy? A thick slice of pungent Taleggio, Coulommiers or triple-cream Brillat-Savarin should do the trick.
  • Creamy burrata is mild, milky and decadent on a burger.
  • Herbed chèvre adds a tart pop of flavor and pairs will with bitter greens like arugula.
  • Add crunch with a cheese crisp, or frico – Parmigiano-Reggiano, Mimolette, and manchego are all good cheeses for making frico.

Super Frico

How to make a frico crisp: sprinkle ¼ cup of finely shredded cheese in a circle shape (the same diameter of your hamburger bun) on a non-stick baking sheet, and bake in a 375 degree F oven until the cheese melts and begins to turn golden. Let it cool and firm up for a few minutes before using. Crunch, crunch!

Super Bowl Sandwich Showdown!

Here at D’Artagnan, like much of the country, we’ve come down with a serious case of Super Bowl Fever. Our “home team” is playing and there are A LOT of football fans on staff (and an equal number who will tune in just for the commercials *cough, cough*) but no matter who we root for or why we watch the big game, one thing is certain – were all in it for the FOOD.

So for a little staff vs. staff fun, we’re staging our own Super Bowl Sandwich Showdown.
