I mean really, who wants to heat up the house more than it is by using the oven or stove? Summer has always meant grilling great food for our family. We grill everything – steaks, burgers, hot dogs, shrimp, fish, vegetables and even fruit. Ever had grilled cake? Or how about a grilled pizza? All those things can be done on a barbecue grill.
Today I am just showing you this awesome, extremely simple burger recipe that my family adores. We are a family of cheeseburger lovers, so we make burgers a LOT! But if we ate the same old flavored burger every single time, we’d get sick of them fast. Our favorite are these Grilled Barbecue Ranch Burgers. They are one of those meals that comes together in under 15 minutes, so it makes the perfect ending to a busy weekday, and can be changed up to change the flavor.You simply start with Kraft Barbecue sauce and go from there. Since there are so many different options and flavors in barbecue sauce you have a wide variety of flavor combinations for these burgers. The best part is, you can head on over to Walmart where they have dozens of Kraft products you can use to create amazing recipes. I was there and grabbed several varieties of barbecue sauce, Kraft American Cheese Slices, and some fresh vegetables to build the best burger I can.Once I got everything home I started to get my meat ready. It’s pretty simple – it’s just 1 lb of ground beef, 1/4 cup of barbecue sauce, any flavor, salt & pepper, to taste. Mix it all together and then form patties. I use my burger press because it helps the burgers grill up perfectly even and nothing over cooks! While your burgers are on the grill cooking, you should get to work on that Walmart Market Fresh produce. We got green peppers, onions, tomatoes, lettuce and avocados. We sliced everything up and waited anxiously for the burgers to finish.Once the burgers were ready, we popped them on a bun, topped them with a slice of Kraft Singles Cheese, even MORE barbecue sauce and then all the veggies everyone wanted.Simple, good food.
