Garlic Herb Cheeseburgers

Total Recipe Time: 20 to 25 minutes

1 pound ground beef (80% to 85% lean)
4 slices red onion, cut 1/2 inch thick
1 large red bell pepper, cut into quarters
1/2 cup garlic-herb cheese spread
4 round French sandwich rolls, split, toasted


Lightly shape ground beef into four 1/2-inch thick patties.


Place patties in center of grid over medium, ash-covered coals; arrange onion and bell pepper around patties. 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. Grill vegetables 13 to 16 minutes or until crisp-tender, turning occasionally. Season with salt and pepper, as desired. Cut bell pepper into 1/2-inch strips.


Spread 1 tablespoon cheese on bottom of each bun; top with burger, another 1 tablespoon cheese, onion slice and 1/4 of bell pepper. Close sandwiches.

Makes 4 servings
