Secondly, I know that it seems like spring has just begun but soon summer grilling will be in full swing. I was eager to get that last bit of frost out of my bones by firing up the grill and enjoying some husband approved cheeseburgers.
As I have previously mentioned, we are in the process of fixing up a foreclosure we bought about a month ago. I have not had much time to explore the new town but I definitely know where the Walmart is and I knew they would have everything I needed. The cheeseburgers were great after a long day of painting around the new house.
When it comes to cheese, I am a bit of a snob. No store brand for this girl. I need cheese that tastes real and flavorful. With Kraft Natural Cheeses, they have a variety and consistent quality I have come to rely on for my recipes. Medium Cheddar pairs extremely well with the smokey BBQ flavor. I am partial to buying bricks rather than slices so I can choose how thick to make the cheese but if convenience is your thing, go with the pre-sliced.
While hubby prepped the burgers, I got all of the toppings ready. I sliced up some lettuce, tomatoes, and avocado. I placed all of these items onto a platter with pickles and the cheese slices. Then put the mayonnaise, BBQ sauce, Ketchup, and Mustard along side of it. This is what I call my “build a burger station” it’s super easy to get all these ingredients together and ready to go so your burger is ready right off the grill.
What makes these cheeseburgers special is the mesquite flavored onion strings. They give a nice textural crunch and the flavor is awesome thanks to the Kraft Mesquite Smoke BBQ sauce as a *ahem* secret ingredient. The smoky mesquite flavor was just what these onion strings needed. Hubby told me I should soak them overnight because that is what the restaurants do but I ain’t got no time for that and they were still great!
In all of my years of grilling and cooking, I believe that a burger is the best when it is simple. When I want a burger, I want to taste the beef, without being overpowered by garlic or onion salt. Adding excessive seasonings is for meatloaf, not burgers. Gimme the beef!
When the house is finally ready I think I will throw a party and serve these bad boys. So what do you think? Are you ready to get the grill fired up for your own Crispy Onion Strings topped BBQ Cheeseburger?
