Two slices of gooey Sargento Sharp Cheddar Cheese, which adorn a half pound ground sirloin burger, is the topper to this 4th of July classic burger that also includes lettuce, tomato, onion, jalapeno pickles and Chipotle mayo

Ingredients
  • ¼ cup Mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp. Chipotle seasoning
  • 2 lbs. Ground sirloin
  • 1 tsp. Kosher salt
  • ½ tsp. Fresh ground black pepper
  • 8 slices Sargento® Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • 4 ea. Ciabatta buns, toasted
  • 12 ea. Sliced pickles
  • ¼ cup jalapenos
  • ½ cup vinegar
  • Lettuce, tomato and onion for toppings if desired
Directions
  1. For Chipotle Mayo: In a medium bowl, combine mayonnaise and chipotle seasoning. Cover and refrigerate until ready to assemble burgers.
  2. For Jalapeno Pickles: In a medium bowl, combine pickle slices, jalapenos and vinegar. Cover and refrigerate until ready to assemble burgers.
  3. Pre-heat charcoal or gas grill for 20-30 minutes. Form ground sirloin into 4 equal patties, then transfer to a plate or tray. Sprinkle with salt and pepper on both sides. Set aside while grill pre-heats.
  4. Place burgers on grill over medium high heat. Grill for 5-7 minutes on each side until cooked to desired doneness. Place cheese on burger the last minute before removing burgers. When cheese has begun to melt, transfer burgers to a clean plate, cover loosely with foil and let rest for 10 minutes. While burgers are resting, grill buns cut side down until toasted.
  5. To assemble: Place lettuce, tomato, pickle and onion on bun bottoms. Top with cheese burgers. Top with chipotle mayonnaise. Serve.
