Nothing signals the end of summer quite like a cookout during Labor Day weekend, and no grill session is complete without the perfect burger! Invite friends over, fire up the grill, and check out these Fair Oaks Farms® cheeses that will take your plain ol’ burger to the next level!

Cheddar Mild:

This mild cheese has a hint of sharpness that goes well with burgers on Labor Day. Stay on the classic route and add bacon, lettuce, tomato, onion, and pickles!

Smoked Gouda:

This cheese has a smooth, natural hickory-smoked flavor that melts perfectly on a hamburger patty. Don’t forget to top your cheeseburger off with bacon, onion, and sweet barbeque sauce!


Havarti Pepper:

This is a mild pepper variety of this rich, semi-soft cheese with a buttery flavor. With just a hint of pepper, this cheese is not too hot and not too mild for people who like their cheese a bit spicy! Serve with chipotle mayonnaise, lettuce, and tomato.

Sweet Swiss:

This soft cheese has a mild, sweet flavor. It’s one of the most popular Fair Oaks Farms’ cheeses! Add sauteed mushrooms and caramelized onions to this melted cheeseburger.
