To celebrate National Burger Month, we’re sharing burger recipes from some of our favorite Texas friends! This recipe comes from the blog, The Nerd’s Wife.
Whole wheat hamburger buns
1 lb lean hamburger meat
Tillamook Medium Cheddar Cheese Slices
Homemade Taco Seasoning
Salt and pepper, to taste
Fresh lime juice
Form patties with the hamburger meat. Sprinkle with taco seasoning. It’s ok to be generous with it, if you don’t mind a little heat. Otherwise, a light sprinkling will do. Add a bit of salt and pepper.
Grill the meat for 4-5 minutes on one side, then flip and grill on the other for 4-5 minutes until cooked through. Add the buns to the grill about 2 minutes before the meat is done to allow them to toast for a bit. You can also add a slice of cheese to the patties about 2 minutes before they’re done to allow the cheese to melt. When the meat is finished cooking, squirt a bit of lime juice on the cooked patties.
Place the meat, cheese and other toppings on the buns and serve warm.
