Kara’s Top 5 Cheeses For Your Burger

Now that grilling season is officially upon us, I’d like to take a moment to shake up your BBQ world.  More often this time of year I’ll get customers asking what kind of cheese “goes with” a burger, or even worse–asking if we sell American Cheese singles (excuse me while I cringe).  My friends, there is no right or wrong answer to the first question.  You can put almost any cheese on a burger and the outcome will be delicious.  Feeling spicy? Pick something with a little more heat!  Feeling exotic?  Pick a cheese with unique spices!  In honor of Memorial Day, and all the BBQs that will be taking place this weekend, we’re bringing you our Top 5 Cheeses for your burger.  Every day this week, we will be posting a different top 5 from each of our Cheese Leads, and maybe even a few other special guests!  You can track the series HERE. To start, here are my favorite cheeses for your burger!

  1. Yancey’s Fancy Buffalo Wing Cheddar – a deliciously spicy cheese that will really bring the heat to your burger.
  2. Key Ingredient White Cheddar Jalapeno Spread – another spicy option that doesn’t need much time to melt.
  3. St Agur blue cheese – such a creamy and hearty blue that is delicious on not just burgers, but steak and chicken as well.
  4. DaVinci Gouda – a creamy gouda option with a subtle Mediterranean flavor of sun-dried tomatoes, olives, garlic, and other spices.
  5. Port Salut – probably the best cheese to melt over your burger–mild and delicious and just engulfs your burger as it melts.
