Cheese up your traditional cheeseburger with smashed Cheetos mixed into the burger meat. With a slice of cheddar on top it’s a double cheeseburger!
National Cheeseburger Day is a food holiday that should not go unnoticed. In an effort to get your attention I decided to incorporate some extra cheesy-ness in the form of Cheetos. After posting recipes for Cheetos crispie treats and caramelized Cheetos it seems like you cannot get enough of the “dangerously cheesy” stuff and I’m starting to wonder what isn’t good with Cheetos? I actually posted a recipe for Cheetos crusted chicken a long time ago, back in the early days of this blog. You should check it out ;-).
I thought up this cheeseburger back when I made the World Peas burgers. The idea of crunching up something delicious and mixing it into burgers opened up a world of possibilities and I took the obvious next step towards my favorite guilty snack – Cheetos. While the Cheetos flavor in the burgers is subtle, it definitely adds to the air of cheesy-ness combined with a good slice of sharp cheddar on top.
One year ago: Spiced Peach Cake
Be adventurous with this goat cheese stuffed burger topped with not only bacon but basil, peach chutney and even peach slices. You’ll be surprised how good it tastes!
Well that was quick. Just yesterday I mentioned that any day now someone will snatch me up for a job. Sure enough shortly after applying to a couple jobs yesterday morning I got a phone call from one asking to set up an in-person interview. An hour later I had a confirmation e-mail for an interview on August 18th! I should foretell things more often on this blog – it’s magical. I did just apply to two more perfect-for-me jobs O:-).
To celebrate this crazy turn of events lets have some fun with our food by combining meat and fruit into one crazy-awesome burger. This burger starts off decently normal with a little pepper mixed into the meat and bacon for topping but then you stuff some goat cheese in the patty and add peach chutney, peach slices, and basil on top. Sounds weird but tastes delicious. If you are skeptical assemble it with everything but the peach slices, but put them on the side to try. I bet they will end up on that burger if you give them a chance.
