The program also offers some great new burger ideas from Celebrity Chef George Duran. Duran, the Venezuelan born American chef, is well known for hosting cooking programs on TLC and Food Network and his appearances on numerous TV shows. He has created four distinctly different Jarlsberg® burger recipes, including one vegetarian burger and one burger with grilled pineapple slices in place of burger buns.
Each of Chef Duran’s four burger recipes offer a summer story and their own film:The Marvelous Meltdown (Jarlsberg® Fondue Burger), Melted Maui Madness(Pineapple Bun Jarlsberg®Burger), The Viva La Quinoa (Quinoa and Red Lentil with Jarlsberg®), and The Brooklyn Bacon Bonanza (Bacon Burger Stuffed with Jarlsberg®). The burgers are placed in different settings, and the ambience is quintessentially New York: three of the four burger shorts are filmed in a Williamsburg brownstone, and the fourth on a rooftop in Queens with the Manhattan skyline as a backdrop.
“As summer heats up around the world, we wanted to share some creative and luscious ways to enjoy burgers made with Jarlsberg® Cheese,” said Valerie Liu, Marketing Manager. “Chef George Duran elevates burgers in brand new melted and magical creations. You won’t want to stop at just one!”

1 tbsp. heavy cream
1 1/2 lb minced beef

The Superbowl is around the corner! Have you thought about what kinds of delicious food you will be serving? To be honest, I do not enjoy sports, and I am only into Superbowl for the food! I am also a firm believer that cheese is an essential part of the most decadent snacks.
Since Jarlsberg cheese is my favorite brand of cheese, I have provided a round-up of a few of my favorite recipes that include Jarlsberg cheese. (See them below)

Sprinkle 2 tbsp. of brown sugar throughout the dough, then evenly line up six slices of ham and six slices of cheese on top. Starting on the short side, begin rolling dough jelly roll style.

Once the tater tot muffins are done, carefully divide egg mixture into each tater tot cup. Top evenly with remaining cup of grated Jarlsberg® and place back into the oven for 10 minutes.

BAKED JARLSBERG® CHEESE MAC N’ CHEESE BITES
• INGREDIENTS •
YOU WILL NEED
- 1 pound Ditalini Pasta
- Kosher Salt
- 1 Stick of Butter
- 1 cup Flour
- 5 cups Whole Milk
- 4 cups Jarlsberg® Grated Cheese
- 1 tbsp. Dried Italian Herb Seasoning, or your own herb mix

A NEW WAY TO ENJOY EVERYONE'S FAVORITE MAC N' CHEESE DISH!
Created by Chef George Duran, Jarlsberg® Mac n' Cheese Bites are a new way to enjoy the traditional macaroni with cheese dish we all know and love. These cheesy bite sized pieces are great for entertaining at parties, tailgating, lunch, or a snack between meals!
Bring 6 quarts of water to a rolling boil and add 1 tblsp. salt. Add Ditalini pasta and stir gently allowing it to boil for about 7-8 minutes, until “al dente”. Remove from heat, drain well and place in a large bowl. Set aside.
For béchamel sauce, start by making a roux in a medium stock pot. Melt butter under medium heat and whisk in flour. Keep whisking under medium heat until roux is browned, about 5-6 minutes. Add 2 tsp. salt. Gently whisk in the milk until properly combined. Continue whisking the sauce until it thickens and begins to simmer, about 10-12 minutes. Remove from heat and add shredded Jarlsberg® Cheese. Add herbs and using a rubber spatula mix until cheese is completely melted. Combine cheese sauce with macaroni and season with salt, if needed. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4-6 hours, preferably overnight.
Pre-heat oven to 425°F and drizzle olive oil on the bottom of a baking pan.
Place beaten eggs, flour and breadcrumbs in separate bowls. Use your hands to make golf ball sized mac n’ cheese bites. Then take each ball and cover it in flour, then eggs and finally panko. Place balls on baking pan and drizzle on top with a little more olive oil. Work in batches and bake for 15-20 minutes, turning over once half way through, until golden brown.
Serve with buffalo sauce, if desired.
