How Do You Top A Cheeseburger?


Our friends at recently conducted a survey, prior to National Cheeseburger Day in September, asking Americans the best way to top a cheeseburger. We know burgers are popular, but this survey revealed only 18 percent of respondents didn’t like cheeseburgers. See the top choices, then scroll down for a few of our Food Channel favorite “burger” recipes.

The Top Toppers
  • American Cheese
  • Cheddar
  • Swiss
  • Pepper Jack
  • Provolone
  • Colby
  • Muenster
  • Gouda
  • Havarti
  • Gruyere

Made simple, with a toasted, fluffy bun, ground sirloin, and melty cheese, this burger is the one we always come back to, with love.

Wyoming Bison Burger

American Buffalo (bison) meat has a rich, slightly sweet meaty flavor and lean fine marbled texture. We pan-seared our bison burgers in a cast iron skillet, but they are just as delicious done on the grill.
