You could say that cheeseburgers are one of the most perfect foods in existence—we certainly think so. The marriage of juicy ground beef and American cheese, paired with your accoutrements of choice (Pickles! Tomato slices! Lettuce, if you like it!) and layered into a warm, buttery bun is an unparalleled union. In fact, the cheeseburger makeup is so flawless, it seamlessly transitions to other food environments, like pasta, casserole, and even salad. We’ve rounded up our best cheeseburger recipes from classic grilled sandwiches to comfort food twists like cheeseburger nachos.
