Nothing tops a juicy burger better than ooey gooey cheese. Luckily there's an entire food holiday dedicated to celebrating one of America's favorite food staple.
Thursday, Sept. 18, is National Cheeseburger Day and FoxNews.com has put together a list of some of the best burger recipes out there.
From classic American to sharp cheddar or Swiss, there's a melted topper for every cheesehead to enjoy.

Sometimes you just MUST have a burger. This burger from America's Table uses three types of beef: sirloin, chuck and brisket, to get the right ratio of fat to protein for the hamburger patty. Former White House Social Secretary Lea Berman says mixing this combination is "definitely worth the extra effort."
