This cheeseburger recipe is a cheesy upgrade to a favorite American classic. A perfectly seasoned flame grilled patty topped with 4 melty cheeses and curly fries tucked into a fluffy bun. This Ultimate Cheeseburger is a meal in itself–perfect for baseball season!
The warm weather has arrived and that means it is grilling season, baby! We love to grill now more than ever since our grill is just a few steps outside our patio area. Our favorite grilled meal for game days and beyond are cheeseburgers.

Plus, to really make this these Ultimate Cheeseburgers we added McCain® Seasoned Curly Fries Seasoned Potato Fries to each! Talk about a match made in foodie heaven!
Best Cheese for a Cheeseburger
Burgers can be topped with pretty much any cheese in existence! However, we prefer the following cheese for a perfectly melted, tasty experience.
- Nacho cheese
- Jalapeno jack
- Swiss Cheese
- Yellow American
Best Toppings for a Cheeseburger
Ok, so now that you know what our favorite cheeses are, let’s explore the toppings we added to our Ultimate Cheeseburger recipe.
Thousand Island Dressing
Green Leaf “curly” lettuce
Best Burger Meat
For the juiciest burger, you will want to use an 80/20 blend of quality ground chuck. This will cause some flare ups with your grill due to the fat content, but will produce a juicy, flavorful burger that is not dried out!
Best Frozen French Fries
MCCain® products are our family’s favorite line of frozen french fries. We love to oven-bake all their tasty varieties. They are made with real potatoes that are perfect to pair with meals like cheeseburgers and more!
Our family loves the crispy outer of McCain products and feel like they truly are the best frozen french fries.

I am now hungry for burgers and fries! Your cheeseburger looks so delicious. 4 different kinds of cheese and curly fries! Yummy. I love that mashed potato-cheddar emoticons too. I will buy some and make it for my grandson. I can just imagine his happy smile when he sees it.

It’s always better to make these recipes at home. We can load burger recipes with our favorites and add extra veggies, too.
Jalapeno jack cheese is actually my preferred cheeseburger topping! Love this classic recipe.
I should put this cheeseburger on our weekend menu. I am sure my family will love it!
These burgers would be a hit with my family. I am loving the idea of adding the curly fries to the burger itself. Definitely something I’m going to try next time.
I think loading up with some curly fries. They just are the right kind of crunch. I also definitely would like them on a burger.
