2016 Derby Burger + Enter To Win!
Total Recipe Time: 25 to 35 minutes
1 pound Ground Beef (80% lean)
3 tablespoons grated green bell pepper
3 tablespoons grated sweet onion
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese
1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese
4 brioche buns, split, toasted
Toppings: lettuce leaves, tomato slices
1. Combine Ground Beef, bell pepper, onion, salt and pepper in large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Lightly shape 8 thin patties. Combine cheeses in small bowl, breaking up any large crumbles. Divide cheese mixture evenly into four portions; place each portion in center of one patty. Top each patty with another patty, sealing edges. Flatten patties to 1 inch thickness and 4 to 5 inch diameter.
2. Place patties on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 11 to 17 minutes until instant-ready thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers 160°F, turning occasionally.
3. Place 1 burger on bottom half of each bun; top with lettuce and tomato, as desired. Close sandwiches.
Makes 4 servings.
Cook’s Tip: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed ground beef. Ground beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F. Color is not a reliable indicator of ground beef doneness.
