Christmas Carol's Note:
Being a burger fanatic, I'm always on the lookout for new recipes. How great is it that one of the latest trends is adding fries or hash browns to your burger? Yum! I discovered this little gem on a recipe card from Super K. Although I haven't tried it yet, (I found it just yesterday!) I was excited to share it with you, as it's definitely at the top of my list. I suppose you could "cheat" and use frozen O'Brien potatoes instead of the hash browns and skip the bell peppers, but then you'd end up with only small bits of them, and miss out on the whole "fresh bell pepper" experience.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 453.59 g 95% lean ground beef
- 354.88 ml frozen hash brown potatoes, thawed, divided (I like Ore-Ida)
- salt, to taste
- fresh ground black pepper, to taste
- 4 slice swiss cheese
- 236.59 ml thickly-sliced bell pepper (any combination of green, red, yellow or orange)
- 4 hamburger buns, split
- 4 romaine lettuce leaves
- 1Coat grill rack with nonstick cooking spray. Preheat grill to medium (300 degrees F to 350 degrees F). In a medium bowl combine ground beef, 1/2 cup of the hash browns, plus salt and pepper to taste; mix well. Form into 4 patties about 1/2 inch thick.
- 2Grill patties 5 to 7 minutes per side or to desired doneness. During the last 2 minutes of grilling, top each patty with 1 cheese slice; grill until melted. Meanwhile, grill peppers 5 to 7 minutes or until lightly charred, turning occasionally.
- 3Prepare remaining 1 cup hash browns in a skillet according to package directions, forming potatoes into four patties.
- 4Place rolls, cut-side down, on grill. Grill until lightly toasted. To assemble burgers, place lettuce on bottom half of rolls, top with burgers, peppers and hash brown patties, and serve.
- 5Note # 1: Seems any type of cheese would work well with this. Since Swiss isn't a favorite of mine, I'll probably try it with Cheddar, Colby-Jack or American.
- 6Note # 2: This sounds as though it would make a mighty fine "Breakfast Burger" with a few modifications. Maybe by leaving off the lettuce and adding a few strips of cooked bacon and a fried egg instead? (Well, we ARE using lean ground beef to compensate, no?).
