DIRECTIONS

  • Coat 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.
  • Grill 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.
  • Prepare remaining 1 cup hash browns in a skillet according to package directions, forming potatoes into four patties.
  • Place 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.
  • Note # 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.
  • Note # 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?).
