Create Cheeseburgers With New Toppings For An Exciting Twist

CAPSULE REPORT: According to the Encyclopedia of American Food & Drink, the average American eats 3 burgers per week, or 156 burgers per year. With so many burgers consumed, there’s a lot of room for creativity: combinations of toppings to give the average burger a delicious twist. For starters, think beyond the wrapped yellow slice to the hundreds of varieties of exciting cheese, from soft French chevre to real farmhouse Cheddar. But don’t stop there: You can also experiment with vegetables, cold cuts and herbs as well as switching that supermarket bun or kaiser roll for something more gourmet. Here, we present eight cheeseburger recipes, courtesy of the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board, for some very special cheeseburgers. There are many more available at This is Page 1 of a 4-page article.
