Chopped Cheese Sandwich

Chopped Cheese Sandwich

The delectable chopped cheese sandwich is a New York institution. The renowned New York chopped cheese sandwich is traditionally made with chopped beef and melted gooey cheese, topped with lettuce and tomato slices. Despite its many components, this sandwich is simple to prepare, wonderfully gratifying, and a quick and delicious on-the-go dinner!

What Is A Chopped Cheese Sandwich?

In essence, the chopped cheese sandwich is a burger with the bun removed. The method begins with whole burger patties, which are subsequently sliced into bite-sized pieces while cooking. Cut the patty into smaller pieces than you would for a burger. A metal cooking spatula is ideal for this task, though a knife or a fork can also be used.

After the beef burger patties have finished cooking, place slices of American cheese on top and let them melt. Place the filling in a bun and top it with whichever fixings you like.

Which Cheese Should You Use?

Most sandwiches with chopped cheese contain American cheese. It is the greatest option because it melts superiorly to other cheeses. If you dislike American cheese or simply wish to try something else, you can substitute provolone or mozzarella. Just ensure that the slices are sufficiently thin to melt fully!

Which Bread Should You Use?

The quality of the bread is critical to fully enjoy your chopped cheese sandwich! I recommend using a classic sandwich bun or a hoagie roll — any style of bread that is soft and fluffy on the inside while remaining slightly crusty on the outside.

Making A Chopped Cheese Sandwich

While I do have a detailed recipe for you below, here is a quick tutorial along with some advice I find useful when preparing this sandwich:

Making the bread:
With a serrated bread knife, cut the bread roll in half.
Alternatively, toast the bread in a skillet over high heat or on a baking sheet in the oven until golden brown.
Just before placing the filling on top, cover the bun in mayonnaise and ketchup.
Making the filling:
Caramelize onions in a pan over low heat. Take the onions out of the skillet.
Burger patties should be added to the same skillet and cooked for 4 minutes, or until the bottom is beautifully browned.
Cook for another minute after flipping the burgers.
Burger patties should be cut into small pieces using two cooking spatulas.
Stir well after adding the cooked onions.
Cheese should be sprinkled on top and left to melt.

Sliced tomatoes and chopped lettuce are placed on top of the burgers.

My advice for the sandwich with chopped cheese:

Toast the bread every time. The bread won’t go mushy when you add the condiments if you toast it first!
Burger patties should be chopped, not cheese. Although the word “chopped cheese” may suggest that the cheese is chopped, doing so will put you in a difficult situation. The beef patties should first be chopped, then the cheese should be added so it can melt.
Spices should be increased for flavor. Even while a chopped cheese sandwich is delicious on its own, I advise adding spicy seasonings for some added taste, either to the patties or to the top of your sandwich.


To make the filling:

12 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 diced onion
2 burger patties (beef)
Season with salt and pepper to taste.
4 American cheese slices
For the parts:

2 sliced bread rolls 34 thru 1 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tablespoon ketchup
12 cup mixed lettuce 1-2 sliced tomatoes


Prepare the bread by slicing the bread rolls with a serrated knife halfway through. Place the rolls on a baking pan and toast them at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for a few minutes, or until beautifully browned. Set aside the bread.

Step 3: Prepare the patties by heating the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat.

Cook the onions until they are caramelized, then add them to the pan. Take the onions out of the pan and put them to one side.

Five, using the same pan, fry the patties for four minutes. Cook the other side for a further minute.


For the filling:

½ tbsp vegetable oil
1 onion, diced
2 beef burger patties
pepper and salt, to taste
4 American cheese slices

For the rolls:

2 sliced bread rolls 34 thru 1 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tablespoon ketchup
12 cup mixed lettuce 1-2 sliced tomatoes


Prepare the bread by using a serrated knife to cut the bread rolls in half.
The buns should be placed on a baking pan and roasted for a few minutes at 375°F, or until well-toasted. Bread is set aside.
To make the patties, prepare a skillet over medium-high heat and add the olive oil.
Cook the onions, in dice, until they are caramelized. The onions should be taken out of the skillet and put aside.
The same skillet should be used to fry the patties for 4 minutes. After flipping, cook for one further minute.
Burgers should be cut into small pieces using two steel spatulas. While cutting and stirring, add the caramelized onions.
Each dish of the mixture should have 1-2 slices of cheese on top.
Assemble; cover the toasted buns with the mayonnaise and ketchup.
Slices of mixed lettuce and tomato should then be placed on top of the burger mixture.
Sandwich is now ready for serving!
