When working with complex textured and flavoured foods, you need to pay attention to even the smallest details. This is especially true with cheese. The quantity of cheese you are using to make any dish matters – cheese slices have an intense flavour, and after taste, a slight mistake can ruin the whole burger.
When purchasing cheese slices for your restaurant, there are many factors to consider – the taste, texture, price, quality and more. One of these factors is the thickness of the cheese slice. American cheese is the first cheese we think of when we talk about burgers, and both Hi-Melt (thick) cheese slices and Thin cheese slices are well-known varieties of cheese slices on the market.
Each type of burger cheese slice has its pros and cons. So, let’s see how each of them make a difference to our burgers:
Thick Burger Cheese Slices
Hi-Melt thick slices are approximately 24-gram slices; these cheese slices melt slowly and add flavour to the meat patty. No other cheese slice can beat the taste of a classic Hi-Melt cheese when it comes to a tasty burger. There is no doubt that this is the best cheese for your restaurant’s burgers.
However, the only con of Hi-Melt cheese slices is the price; these are comparatively higher than some other cheese slices.
Thin Burger Cheese Slices
Thin cheese slices are the favourite of many restaurateurs, as they are much more economical than thicker cheese slices. These cheese slices minimise the cost of production and deliver high-quality, delicious flavour to your burgers, at a low price.
However, if you prefer to serve burgers that are drowning in cheese, this might not be the option for you.
In the end, flavour wise both of these cheese slices are the best choice for your burgers, as they both bring an incredible flavour. The choice of thick or thin entirely depends on the chef, the customers and the other ingredients used.
Thin cheese slices work perfectly on a veggie or a chicken burger, but you might want to add a thicker slice of cheese if you are making a beef burger.
The main factor to look at is the quality of the cheese slices you are using. This matters much more than the thickness of the cheese slices. If you are purchasing from a trustworthy and high-quality brand – both thick and thin cheese slices can be used for your burgers.
