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
spray for grill
Salt & Pepper
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.
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.
