  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) dry breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 6 slices processed Cheddar, Swiss or mozzarella cheese
  • 6 hamburger buns, toasted
  • Old El PasoTM Medium Thick N' Chunky Salsa

Preparation

  • Combine beef, seasoning mix, salsa, breadcrumbs and egg. Form into 6 patties, each 1/2-inch (1.25 cm) thick.
  • Preheat barbecue to medium-high. Grill burgers 6 to 7 minutes, flip and cook another 6 to 7 minutes or until no longer pink inside.
  • Top with cheese during last 2 to 3 minutes of cooking. Serve on buns with additional salsa.

Expert Tips

  • Tip: Try substituting aged Cheddar cheese for processed Cheddar as it delivers exceptionally more flavour. Try mixing shredded Cheddar directly into your patty mixture for an unexpected flavour sensation.
