These are really good and a slice of cheddar cheese tops them off. Great grilling. I got this recipe out of a newspaper about 20 years ago and haven't seen anything like it since.

My husband and I loved it. The only thing is that I did not put enough salt and pepper, I say more then just 1 dash could be better. It was a litter hard to cook because of the beer. But I will be making this again.
