Poolside Recipes: Philly Cheese Burgers

philly cheese burgers

This week we paired two classics together to create the “ultimate poolside burger”. The burger combines the cheese and peppers you’d find on a classic “Philly” with the beefy goodness of a traditional burger. The Philly Cheese Burgers are great by the pool and feed the hungriest of swimmers.

Step 3:

Place your grill basket (as shown) or tin foil along with your patties on the grill. Flip patties every 7 to 10 minutes and cook until golden brown. Check and flip peppers and onions occasionally.

Note: Avoid pressing patties with the spatula as it dries out the meat.
