Likely for two reasons.  1) The way it melts.  2) It's the closest to what the chain places actually use.

Exactly.  When i want a fancy burger, I use fancy cheese and a bakery bun.  That's what I normally do, this just scratches a different itch.

There is no good american cheese. American cheese isn't even cheese. That's a solid way to kill a perfectly good burger.

That said, as Dave proposed, if your craving is something different it may serve. I also tend to prefer garbage hot dogs to gourmet hot dogs.. So its all situational.

Yes, I think that most "American" cheese is called cheese "product".

My go-to "fancy burger" is:
-Ground chuck cooked in bacon grease (patty made with Adobo seasoning, black pepper, egg, cilantro)
-Mozzarella or swiss cheese
-Mushrooms & Onions (sauteed with bacon greaset, pepper, worcestershire sauce)
-Toasted Potato Roll or Pretzel Roll
-whole-seed style mustard on bottom bun

Disclaimer: bacon grease is bad for you, but I'm lazy so it adds salt without me having to salt stuff separately.

If you ever try the expensive Kraft slices or from the Deli,  it is far better than the cheap sliced american cheese.   Definitely worth it.

If I've got the time, I like shredded Cheddar mixed with cream cheese to top a burger.  Even better if I can top one with a couple jalapeno poppers.

Here and there good old American cheese fits just fine.

I have a press for making stuffed burgers, much fun.
Burgers of ground chuck, egg, salt, pepper, oats or breadcrumbs... Sometimes finely chopped bacon mixed in

Sautee mushrooms, onions, diced garlic lightly
Fill burger with above and choice of cheese depending on what i have... Swiss, goat, feta (if feta try replacing onions with chopped spinach), sharp cheddar, etc
Toppings depend on cheese choice too.

I'm with Dave, if it's gonna have mustard it better be coarse and gritty, none of that runny bright yellow shit

I like the shredded + cream cheese idea.  There is a use for the bright yellow garbage mustard on cheap hot dogs, and seared into the patty for that authentic In-n-out Animal Style burger.  T minus 1 day until I fly out west for the real thing.   8-)

When I go fancy, I haven't typically done "good american", but I'll remember that for next time. 

Does keto really endorse bacon grease as the food lube of choice?

On hot dogs I'm usually more of a ketchup and raw onion kinda guy
But occasionally sauerkraut and mustard, but again, it's gotta be good mustard for me

Doesn't have to be coarse and gritty, but definitely spicy and brown.  Preferably sharing a name with a Polish hero of the American Revolution.

Some of them literally save the bacon grease to cook with at a later date. 
Some of them believe that is a bit extreme and mostly choose healthy cooking oils and don't shy away from eating bacon and/or meat fat

I guess I'd fall into the latter category,  but if you want to get into that discussion we can start a Keto thread

Just got back from Vegas and after having In-n-Out, my official verdict is that my clones are pretty damn close  :mrgreen: .  I think the next step is to get some 5 Guys peanut-oil fries and throw the In-n-out "Animal Style" toppings on them.

I mean, that's what I do when I use bacon grease.

I had an odd thought last week about pizza, and tonight I made General Tso's pizza !  Bits of chicken, General Tso's sauce, and mozzarella cheese.  Delicious.
I've since found others making it on Reddit and a couple other places, but no matter, it was tasty.  In the same way BBQ pizza is.

Oh that sounds pretty awesome.  I've dipped crust in General Tso's sauce before, but this is on another level.

Be careful giving homemade goods as presents around Christmas time; you can end up with a very expensive annual tradition ;)

Someone at work informed me about using pork rinds as "breading" for chicken tenders.   I don't like pork rinds but tried it per her recommendation.

Yumm!!!!    nothing like coating your meat with another form of meat!


I mixed 1 cup of crushed rinds with 1/3 cup or Parmesan cheese.

I guess that does make sense if you think about it.  I bet it would be good as a coating for shrimp too, give it a little bacon-wrapped flavor.

I just did a test batch.  About 3 quarts cost me $8 (goooo Aldi).  There's a little booze in this too: Tequila.
