INSIDER spoke with two cheese experts (yes, that’s a real job!) — Andrew Marcelli, co-owner of Marcelli Formaggi in New Jersey, and Julia Birnbaum from the famous Murray’s Cheese in New York City — to ask what they top their burgers with. Armed with this expertise and our own cheesy preferences, we came up with the ultimate ranking of 9 of the best cheeses for topping your perfectly grilled burger.
“The qualities for the best cheese for a burger are a combination of flavor and moisture,” Marcelli said. “If it’s something really dry, it wont melt too well on top of the burger. You want a cheese that naturally melts when you apply heat to it.”
That’s why you don’t want to try something like a dry Manchego or a Parmigiano, which will just sweat because they have high melting points, he added.
