Cheetos Cheeseburgers

by Erin

Cheese up your traditional cheeseburger. Cheetos cheeseburgers have smashed Cheetos mixed right into the burger meat, and with a slice of cheddar on top it’s a double cheeseburger!

National Cheeseburger Day is a food holiday that should not go unnoticed. In an effort to get your attention I decided to incorporate some extra cheesy-ness in the form of Cheetos.

After posting recipes for Cheetos crispie treats and caramelized Cheetos it seems like you cannot get enough of the “dangerously cheesy” stuff and I’m starting to wonder what isn’t good with Cheetos? I actually posted a recipe for Cheetos crusted chicken a long time ago, back in the early days of this blog. You should check it out ;-).

Making Cheetos Burgers.

I thought up this cheeseburger back when I made the World Peas burgers. The idea of crunching up something delicious and mixing it into burgers opened up a world of possibilities and I took the obvious next step towards my favorite guilty snack – Cheetos.

While the Cheetos flavor in the burgers is subtle, similar to my BBQ Cheetos Meatloaf, it definitely adds to the air of cheesy-ness combined with a good slice of sharp cheddar on top. Maybe go the extra mile and serve it with a side of Cheetos Mac and Cheese or just more Cheetos
