Cheesy burger

I realize that we are smack dab in the middle of winter and burgers just aren't the "normal" thing that we think about when we are asking ourselves, "What should I make for dinner"....but you should. Burgers USUALLY please everyone, and are a quick meal to make summer, spring, fall or winter. This burger is easy to whip up, and tastes great too. So pull out the paper plates and enjoy a little bit of "summer" in your house tonight.

Cheesy Burger

1 1/2 lb ground beef
hamburger buns ( I like the sesame seed buns)
1/2 c. swiss cheese, grated
1/2 c. Monterrey jack cheese, grated
14 c. bulls eye barbecue sauce
1/2 t. onion powder
1/2 t. garlic powder
1/2 t. season salt
pepper

Combine ground beef, cheese, barbecue sauce and seasonings. Mix with your hands (yes, you have to play in the meat...if this freaks you out, put plastic bags over your hands) until all ingredient is well mixed. Shape into patties. Place patties in a hot skillet, cook on medium for 4-6 minutes on each side or until done. Be careful to watch burgers closely so they don't burn. Place on a bun with all your favorite burger toppings...enjoy!

*NOTE- this is not the ideal burger to cook on your grill...I learned the hard way. Because of the cheese and barbecue sauce, the burger isn't as "solid" as it usually is....placing it on a grill and trying to cook it will only bring you to tears, as your meat cooks and loosens...it falls through the spaces on the grill and your left with "pieces" instead of patties! Make sure to use a skillet.
