This zesty barbecue cheeseburger utilizes Certified Hereford Beef to make the juiciest burger you’ll ever eat.
The best way to know if your meat is fully cooked is to check the internal temperature with an instant-read thermometer.
1 pound Certified Hereford Beef ground beef
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
4 tablespoons barbecue sauce, divided
4 slices white Cheddar, pepper Jack, smoked Gouda or provolone cheese
4 whole wheat hamburger buns or pretzel rolls, split, toasted
Lettuce leaves, tomato slices and red onion slices
Combine ground beef, onion and 2 tablespoons barbecue sauce in medium bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Shape into four 1/2-inch thick patties.
Place patties on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 8 to 10 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 7 to 9 minutes) until instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers 160°F, turning occasionally. About 1 minute before burgers are done, brush with remaining 2 tablespoons barbecue sauce and top with cheese.
Line bottom half of each bun with lettuce leaves, tomato and red onion slices, as desired; top with burger. Close sandwiches.
Versatile, lean and economical. Ideal for recipes calling for browned, crumbled ground beef, such as chili, tacos and spaghetti sauce.More About Cuts
