It used to be that a cheeseburger was just a cheeseburger: a patty and a slice of cheese—usually American, Cheddar or Swiss—and maybe a garnish of pickles. Then some inspired person added a slice of bacon. And those were the options for decades.
But cheeseburgers have evolved into more complex creations with endless possibilities.
We’ve been slammed with pitches for creative cheeseburger ideas for National Cheeseburger Day, September 18th. We don’t even know that these ideas are out-of-the-box. We think they’re the new box.
Some of the ideas that have come our way:
URBO, a huge new gourmet venue in the New York City theatre district, suggested a Brie Burger (dry aged beef, Brie and pear mostardo) and a Caprese Burger (dry aged beef, mozzarella, beefsteak tomato and fresh basil).
Maria Bernardis of Greekalicious suggested a lamb burger with feta cheese and yogurt sauce in toasted pita.
The Cheesecake Factory suggested a Memphis Burger, beef topped with American cheese, barbecue and slaw.
A cheeseburger with pimento cheese from Gardenia Restaurant in New York City is delicious, but pretty simple compared to the other ideas we received.
Bull City Burger topped a beef patty with a sausage patty, Swiss cheese and pickles.
The Palm topped a patty with Gruyère, roasted red bell pepper and a slice of prosciutto.
Omaha Steaks suggested pimento cheese under the patty, sliced avocado and salsa on top.
