Who’s Ready For A “Cheese-Dipped” Burger!
I love to cook and I love the internet as well – and thanks to a terrific Facebook Food Page, I discovered this!
Yes, it’s a cheeseburger with the cheese on the outside!
This “dip your burger in cheese” trend is worldwide and I love it!
And of course, I had to make it!
The “Cheese-Dipped Burger” Experiment!
I needed to try this for myself, so the first thing I did was line up my ingredients – and since you can see one very special item, I decided to get it pre-cooked:
There is no better way to begin to cook than with the delicious sizzling smell of bacon…
One that is cooked up, then it’s time to make your burgers:
For this test, I didn’t want to over-flavor my meat – so I left out the diced onion and Worstershire Sauce that I normally add, and just seasoned the patties with basic salt and pepper – which I then fried up in a pan – about 5-6 minutes each side:
While they were cooking, I sliced my block of Tillamook Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese, which is a personal favorite – I put it in a pan to heat and slowly melt:
I then added a little bit of milk – how much is strictly a matter of getting the right consistency:
As you can see, I got a creamy, slickly thickened consistency because I added more cheese back and continued to stir over low heat…and of course I turned the burgers so they could finish cooking as well – then it was time to take a bun, put it on a plate, and add a nice thick slice of onion:
I put the patties, onion and bacon on a hefty bun and moved the cheese into a nice looking ramekin – then it was time to dip!
My Cheese-Dipped Burger Worked!
Well, this is how it turned out and it was delicious!
The “Burger Dip” is a move you have to make quick, because as the cheese cools it’s more difficult to get it to coat the burger…I think a bit runnier would have been even better.
You really have to keep a close eye on the thickness of the cheese sauce, and it takes a bit to get it coated right – but it worked an it was very tasty indeed!
Since I was alone, I just continued to dip between bites so that I always had a nice amount of cheese coating my burger.
Of course, not all cheeseburger experiments are created equal.
Remember when I tackled this?
It’s a “Cheeseburger In A Can” and I opened it and ate it too!

For those who are playing along, I am cooking a recipe from a different cookbook I own every single week:
This is a “Crispy Mollet Egg With Asparagus” and while delicious to eat, it proved a nightmare for me to make!

My family would love this, John. What a fun idea.
These are easy and really fun, Robbie…very interactive!
I would be keen to try that, John. It looks delicious!
