Break out the grill because it’s burger time! This burger oozes with an ooey, gooey cheesy surprise that will have you grinning from ear to ear. Be sure let these beauties rest for 5 minutes before taking a bite, because the cheese inside bubbling hot! My chef tip: add fresh grilled fruit to your burgers to keep ‘em guessing. Replace tomatoes with grilled pears, mango, or pineapple. Be careful not to overcook fruit – grill only until grill marks are present on each side. Now, do a little party dance!
