I love cheese on my hamburgers. It’s just not the same without it. I usually use Swiss cheese and always have some sliced Swiss cheese on hand but noticed that this time I was running pretty low and I wasn’t sure I was going to have enough until I remembered…….hello the cheese is stuffed inside the burger and it was cheddar cheese I am using this time and I always have cheddar cheese on hand. I always have to top my egg whites off with some cheddar cheese. But not the kind in the pre-shredded bags, the good kind from the block that you shred yourself. OK so technically I didn’t shred it myself but my food processor did and the cheese that comes from the block just tastes so much better and it’s fresh. I prefer Tillmook cheese.
