The INSIDER Summary:

  • INSIDER spoke with two cheese experts — Andrew Marcelli, co-owner of Marcelli Formaggi, and 

    Julia Birnbaum from Murray’s Cheese —

     to determine the best cheeses to top your burger with.

  • It’s all about moisture and meltability.
  • American cheese came out on top.
  • Drier aged cheeses like a Parmigiano or an aged Manchego won’t work.

You can never go wrong with a cheeseburger, the American classic. But with so many varieties of cheese out there, how do you figure out which is best atop your juicy patty? 

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.
