The Only Type Of Cheese Your Chopped Sandwich Deserves
A chopped cheese sandwich has ground beef and spices served on a hero or hard roll. There's only one type of cheese you should be adding to it: American cheese.
The cheese is meant to melt through the chopped bits of meat and become something closer to a cheese sauce — and no cheese melts quite like American.
The emulsification process of American cheese gives it a strong structure, preventing it from breaking when it melts or becoming rubbery as it cools.
It's this texture that matters the most. American cheese isn't the most flavorful, but it becomes creamy when melted, which perfectly complements the crispy ground beef.
