Exceptional Burgers Start with Wisconsin Cheese

To develop the perfect cheeseburger recipe for your menu, it's not just about using exotic proteins, unique toppings and original sauces. For the best cheeseburger, you need to start with Wisconsin cheese. The rich variety of textures and flavors that Wisconsin's cheesemakers have to offer allows you to create truly special cheeseburgers that stand out from the crowd.
 

Cheese Tips for Burgers

TIP #1: Artisan cheeses and more descriptive menus are top trends for 2016. Let ingredients shine by naming special varieties on your menu—like Grand Cru® or Pleasant Ridge Reserve.
 
TIP #2: Pair the right cheese with the right protein. Smoked gouda is perfect for a turkey burger, while creamy brie or aged alpine-style are great for beef patties.
 
TIP #3: Greek-influenced burgers will be on the rise in 2016. Try a lamb patty with goat cheese, or an angus beef patty topped with a cucumber, tomato and feta salad.
 
TIP #4: Thirty-six percent of millennials consider burger-for-breakfast concepts highly appealing. We love the idea of an apple and sharp cheddar breakfast burger.

Industry Trends

Mintel's forecast research for 2016 proves that anything goes when it comes to today's burgers. As protein options diversify and toppings get more extreme, consumers are placing more importance on upscale, gourmet-like flavors. Be sure to highlight your investment in great ingredients, whether it's ethically-sourced protein or award-winning Wisconsin cheese.
 
Consider incorporating the "build-it-yourself" model, as 85 percent of customers like choosing their own toppings for burgers, according to Mintel research. Allowing your guests to choose between several different high-quality cheeses and a variety of ethnic condiments will give them a personalized experience perfectly suited to their tastes.
