Grilled Cheese Burger

2 hamburger patties
4 pieces sourdough or french bread
Shredded cheddar cheese as much as you like
Sliced red onion and tomato if you like

Make It:
Heat a cast iron skillet over medium high heat. While pan is heating salt and pepper your hamburger patties, put them in pan cook 4 minutes per side. Remove patties from pan and set aside. Wipe out pan, butter one side of each piece of bread, place butter side down in pan. Add cheese(as much as you like) then onion, then pattie, then more cheese and tomato slices. Top with other piece of bread, press down on sandwich to bind it, flip over and cook until all cheese is melted and bread is browned. Do the same again for the other burger. This is a recipe for 2 but can be easily doubled or tripled depending on how many you are feeding. Enjoy!

Fresh and Easy Grill Pack

For all of you that are busy! This is great for 10 bucks you get 4 italian sausage, 4 chicken thighs and 4 chicken drumsticks, and 4 hamburger patties. The chicken is marinated and is good cooked in the oven or on the grill. I use the sausage in pasta sauce. My kids don't eat burgers so I get 4 dinners for us out of this. I love it!
