The 4th and Long Burger

The 4th and Long BurgerI’m always conflicted about the time of year when summer turns to fall. Living here in in Wisconsin it means that within a few months we’ll be seeing snow, which is never fun, but on the other hand it also means that it’s time for football season!

The Cheese & Burger Society is currently running a pretty amazing contest where you can win an all-expense paid trip to one of this year’s Green Bay Packers games. If you win not only will you receive airfare, a two-night hotel stay and two club level tickets to a game, but you’ll also get pre-game sideline passes, two Green Bay Packers jerseys, a $500 Mastercard gift card and a $100 voucher towards food and beverages at the game. Even if you don’t win the grand prize though they’re also giving away $500 Packers Pro Shop gift cards to three second place winners as well as $250 Pro Shop gift cards to eight third place winners. It doesn’t get any better than that!

To help spread the word about this contest they’ve asked me to create a football-themed burger that uses plenty of delicious Wisconsin cheese, and that’s what inspired the 4th and Long Burger! It’s got four 1/2 pound ground beef patties each topped with a different Wisconsin cheese.

With how many great cheesemakers Wisconsin has narrowing it down to only four was actually a little tough, but in the end I went with Cheddar, Colby, Fontina and Gouda since they all have pretty low melting points and in turn work really well on burgers. In retrospect though I probably just should have referenced a touchdown in the burger name so I could have used seven different cheeses on it.

Want to try the 4th and Long Burger for yourself? Just head over to for the recipe, and as I mentioned earlier, don’t forget to enter the contest!
