Our friends at NationalToday.com 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
- Pepper Jack
A few of our Food Channel faves:
These little sliders make a terrific burger alternative. You may find you actually prefer them to the beefy version.
Hearty BBQ smoked chicken or pulled pork sandwiches layered on toasted Kaiser rolls with crisp Applewood-Smoked bacon, smoky-sweet cider barbecue sauce and crunchy apple slaw.
Made simple, with a toasted, fluffy bun, ground sirloin, and melty cheese, this burger is the one we always come back to, with love.
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.
