Here’s the Beef: Our Cheesiest Burgers Yet

Is there any better combo than cheese plus burger plus bun? We don’t think so. And here’s the best part: The basic formula can be endlessly adapted to suit nearly any preference, whether you’re mayo-obsessed, a seafood fiend, or a heat seeker. Here, we concoct five riffs on the classic cheeseburger—a French Onion Soup Burger piled high with melty Gruyère and a tangle of caramelized onions, a Pimento Cheese Burger bedecked with spicy-sweet candied jalapeños, and a Lamb and Feta Burger swiped with rosemary aioli, just to name a few. We’re sure there’s something for nearly anyone, so ready the napkins and heat up the cast-iron pan. It’s time to stack some meat and cheese.
