Fried Queso Fresco Burgers

  • 1 lb ground beef roll or 4 burger patties (I use Mighty Spark Food Co.)
  • Your favorite burger seasonings
  • 1 tsp bacon grease or cooking oil
  • 1 package queso fresco cheese, sliced into 2 oz slices
  • Grill burgers to your liking
  • While burgers are resting, heat bacon grease or other cooking oil in a pan over medium heat
  • Once heated, fry each slice of queso fresco cheese in the pan over medium heat for 1-2 minutes per side.  Flip once the cheese starts to bubble around the edges.
  • Top burgers with the fried cheese

Top with your favorite toppings.  I personally like to wrap my burger in a lettuce wrap and then top with avocado and salsa.
