Cheesy BBQ Ranch Burgers

I don't know about y'all, but I'm over this winter non sense. I need some sunshine and warm spring/summer air on my skin. Stat! 

I'm looking forward to our first spring and summer in our new home!  I can't wait to see our giant trees in front and back full of green beautiful leaves, as well as the bushes in my front garden in full bloom! Not to mention filling up our pre-drained hot tub and watching Joseph chase fireflies in our back yard. But most of all, I'm all about BBQs and front porch sittin with a nice glass of wine.. Seriously.. Can you tell I'm ready for spring? Haha! 

Since our grill is in the storage shed and well it's supposed to snow tonight.. I'll just whip out my handy George Foreman grill on my stove top and cook up some burgers

:: Cheesy BBQ Ranch Burgers ::

 1 lb Ground Beef 
1/2 cup BBQ sauce 
1/2 sleeve of saltine crackers ( not pictured) 
3/4 cup shredded cheese of your choice
1 tbs ranch seasoning 
1/2tsp lemon pepper
1/2 minced Onions
1 Pinch of Minced garlic (optional) 
1 George Forman Grill ( you can also use just a simple skillet ) 

:: Notice my RUDYS BBQ SAUSE! Gotta love that sweet sweet Sauce!:; 

Crunch up your saltines leaving just a few clumps, Mix meat and all ingredients in a bowl with the crunched up crackers.
Once mixed your hamburger should feel thick and not a squishy-runny feel. If runny, just add a few more crushed crackers. 

:: Always Wash hands before and after handling raw meat:: 

Roll your hamburger meat to the size of your liking. ( remember they will plump up a bit when cooking)  I made that little one for J ! One Lb of ground beef will make a few good sized patties.

Back in 2007, I won a George Foreman grill and I am proud to say, this sucker is still kicken strong to this day! I LOVE it. It was perfect when I lived alone and still perfect with my family. Yes, I will be buying another if and when this baby ever dies. ( heaven forbid that's any time soon) 

Thanks to for the handy temp chart, I'm always at ease with my cooking. Of course, I will always make a slight cut and check my meat before serving. (I get kinda paranoid about that.. Especially with J eating the meat.)

After your George Foreman is ready for cooking, add your delicious patties. Do not close the lid, you'll need to use this like a normal grill and flip your burgers. Cooking each side for about 5-8 minutes. 

I had about 5 good sized patties, so I also cooked a few in my skillet. Cooking each side for about 5-8 minutes. 

Note-You won't need cooking spray on your skillet. 



:: Please note, all opinions of George Foreman are my own, I just simply love it.::
