Burger Lovers Can Go Gourmet This Grilling Season With Perfectly Sliced, Supremely Meltable Castello Blue Cheese Slices
Mouthwatering burgers topped with tangy blue cheese crumbles are a favorite for many burger fans, appearing on restaurant menus from coast to coast. Castello, maker of creatively crafted cheeses since 1893, now makes it easy for any home cook to create an epicurean burger worthy of a gourmet chef, with the launch of Burger Blue.
Featuring perfectly sized slices of Castello Blue Cheese, Burger Blue melts evenly across a patty and stays on the burger during cooking and consumption – a feat nearly impossible to accomplish with traditional blue cheese crumbles. In addition, thanks to slices that are the ideal width for grilling, Burger Blue delivers the classic bold flavor of blue cheese without overpowering a burger.
“Burger Blue really amps up the flavor of the everyday cheeseburger,” says Chef Michael Symon, co-host of ‘The Chew,’ author of numerous best-selling cookbooks and owner of several restaurants. “The size and thickness of the Burger Blue slices are perfect – my burgers have just the right amount of tangy, melty blue cheese without the mess and fuss of blue cheese crumbles. Not only does it make the grilling experience simpler and cleaner, it also brings out the flavor of the meat and complements some of my favorite toppings like sautéed mushrooms and onions.”
Burger Blue: Bold, tangy and sophisticated
Burger Blue cheese melts perfectly and is conveniently sliced to just the right size. The creamy and characteristically tangy notes of blue feature balanced sweet and salty undertones, lending an exquisite flavor to a savory grilled beef patty. Each slice has been carefully crafted in the tradition of the artisan cheese makers at Castello, using only natural ingredients and impeccable attention to detail. Part of a full line of blue cheese varieties, the new sliced Castello Burger Blue is produced only at one dairy in Denmark. Home cooks can look for Burger Blue in the specialty cheese area at grocery retailers beginning in May. A package of six slices retails for $5.99 on average.
