How To Melt Cheese On Burgers

The cooking process doesn’t matter, the cheese is the last thing that always goes on the burger. Most of the cheeses below melt quickly, within 2 minutes. We should only apply cheese after one side is finished cooking when we are within 2 minutes of finishing the other side.

If we are grilling your burger, we should lay the cheese on top, and then close the lid so the cheese will melt. Depending on the cheese, 2 to 3 minutes should do it. We should be careful not to overcook the meat while melting the cheese.

We can even move the patty off direct heat while you melt the cheese. Another trick is to cap the burger like they do in some diners. Just add the cheese, put a metal mixing bowl over the burger, and it should melt in as little as 30 seconds.
