Tasty, 20-minute recipe! Ranch dressing adds a tangy taste to grilled cheeseburgers.
lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
cup finely chopped onion
cup chopped fresh parsley
cup ranch dressing
teaspoon coarse ground pepper
slices (about 3/4 oz each) Cheddar or American cheese
whole-grain sandwich buns, split
dill pickle slices
Heat closed medium-size contact grill for 5 minutes. In medium bowl, mix beef, onion, parsley, 3 tablespoons of the dressing and the pepper. Shape mixture into 4 patties, about 3/4 inch thick.
Place patties on grill. Close grill. Grill 4 to 6 minutes or until meat thermometer inserted in center of patties reads 160ºF and patties are no longer pink in center. Top each patty with cheese slice. Let stand on grill about 3 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Spread remaining ranch dressing on cut sides of buns. Place cheese-topped patties and pickles in buns.
To keep the ground beef from sticking to your hands when you are working with it, wet your hands before shaping the patties.
The burgers are perfect for year-round picnics! Just serve them with your favorite picnic side dishes--potato salad, baked beans, coleslaw and chips.
