Grilling for the fourth of July

Family Features

Many of today’s families have something in the kitchen that previous generations didn’t – more men involved in meal preparation. On the Fourth of July, that trend will likely continue as men, especially fathers, take to the grill to prepare popular summer fare for the family.

Easy Cheesy Burgers

Servings: 8

2packages (16 ounces each) Jennie-O Lean Ground Turkey

1teaspoon kosher salt

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

8 sesame seeds buns, warmed

ketchup (optional)

yellow mustard (optional)

Heat grill or griddle to medium heat.

In large bowl, gently combine ground turkey and salt. Shape ground turkey into eight balls. Cover with plastic.

Mix mozzarella and cheddar to create eight piles of shredded cheese, each between 1/4-1/3 cup.

Grill patties 12-15 minutes, or until cooked through. Always cook to well-done (165 degrees) as measured by a meat thermometer.

Once patties are cooked through, place on aluminum foil-lined baking sheet. Top patties with shredded cheese and place under broiler 3-5 minutes; cook until cheese is bubbly.

Place patties on warmed buns. Add ketchup and mustard, if desired.
