The Three Elements Every Great Cheeseburger Needs

It’s Perfectly Cooked

Let’s be honest–there’s nothing worse than loving a well-done burger, but taking that first bite to discover that it’s medium-rare. The key to getting a perfectly cooked burger is to take the time to experiment and learn how your grill works.

As with any of the best things in life, patience is a virtue. You’d do well to read up on plenty of grilling techniques in order to try things out and discover what works best for you. Grab a watch and measure everything out to the second to learn what’s best for your grill and for your taste buds.

It Has the Right Cheese to Meat Ratio

This one is also subjective, but in order for your burger to succeed on all fronts, you absolutely have to get the cheese to meat ratio down correctly. Whereas some might swear by adding one slice of American cheese, others say you should layer on two (or more!) slices of Muenster. Others still insist that you should use fresh Feta, although there is some disagreement on when exactly this should be applied to your burger.

It Hits All of the Right Flavor Notes

That means that if you like a bit of heat, add some cayenne when you’re forming your patties. If you prefer something more savory, add in minced garlic or worcestershire sauce. The perfect cheeseburger has to hit all of the right notes, so consider carefully what you’re going for and then make it a point to work towards your goal in a way that’s thoughtful and effective.

A Quick Side Note

Keep in mind, of course, that the perfect burger is subjective, so be sure to learn about what your family likes and what your guests like. If you cook with passion and with attention to detail, you’re sure to end up with a winning cheeseburger that’s perfect for the whole family.
