Cooking With My Kids

Sharing is caring!

It’s burger night!  I let my 14 year old take the chef hat; he picked the ingredients, spices, etc.  He loves to be in the kitchen; takes after me 😉  

What fun.  I love it when my kids help me cook- I love the fact that they get the experience and we get to spend time together all at the same time.  Tonight we made some yummy burgers that had a tiny bit of heat with all the flavor (’cause we removed all those mean seeds), and also had the bite of jack cheese.   


Stuffed Jalapeno-Jack Burgers

1 pound ground sirloin

Hamburger buns of your choosing – tonight we used Kaiser rolls

2 good squeezes of Heinz 57

1/2 block Monterey Jack cheese

3 jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped fine


1 egg

spray for grill


Salt & Pepper

Garlic Salt

Combine the sirloin, Heinz 57, egg, salt and pepper; form into thin patties.  On one patty layer a handful of diced jalapenos, then a handful of jack cheese.  Stack another sirloin burger and press all the sides in to form one patty.  Repeat with the remaining ingredients.  cheese


I love this picture….a little man after my own heart.

Heat grill to medium; add burgers.  Grill for about 6-7 minutes, and then turn.  Grill burgers according to preference.

Slather butter on both sides of 4 buns and sprinkle with garlic salt (or if you made big fat burgers 3) – add to grill and check after about 2-3 minutes.  Remove when butter side is slightly golden.

Serve burgers on buttered buns.
