How many cheddars are too many in a burger? Science doesn't know yet. This burger handles four safely and deliciously. The all-beef patty is stuffed with two different cheddars, cooked in bacon fat, and topped with two other completely different cheddars. With four cheeses, you get a different flavor in every bite. Throw some crispy bacon on it along with lettuce and onions, and call it a beautiful, fantastic, cheesy day.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound bacon
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 4 slices white sharp cheddar
  • 4 slices yellow sharp cheddar
  • 4 slices white mild horseradish cheddar
  • 4 slices yellow mild cheddar (Try sweet red cheddar if you can find it!)
  • 4 buns
  • Green leaf lettuce
  • 1 medium white onion, sliced

Directions

Cook the bacon in a large frying pan, reserving the fat.

Rip up 1 slice of the white sharp cheddar and 1 slice of the yellow sharp cheddar and fold into the middle of each burger. Form 4 patties around the cheese. Season the beef with the salt and pepper. 

Cook the patties in the bacon fat. Before they finish, melt a slice of the horseradish cheddar and a slice of the yellow mild cheddar on each burger. Cover the pan or tent to help the cheese melt. 

BUILD YOUR BURGER: Bottom bun, lettuce, cheeseburger, bacon slices, onions, top bun. A gratuitous number of cheddars? No. Five would be crazy. But what are you going to do, three? No. Four's your number.
