Best Cheeseburger EVER

It's summer, it's BBQ time and it's always cheeseburger time. Yesterday Ron (my husband, he's on the left side of the picutre) was in charge of dinner for our guests. He'd heard a secret about the perfect burger. And all I can say is, it was the best cheeseburger I'd ever had.

He went to the store and found Tri-tip and then had the butcher grind it 2 times. Yup steak. A bit on the expensive side. The measurements are done guy style meaning, I'm going to do the best I can telling you how much to use.

Cheeseburgers 6 burgers
4 lbs Ground Tri-tip
1/2 yellow onion - chopped
1/2 green bell pepper - Chopped
1/2 red bell pepper - chopped
12 Slices mushrooms
Ground Pepper
Montreal Seasoning
Garlic Powder
Olive Oil

In a oblong 9x13 pan he placed foil. He coated the foil in olive oil. He made 6 1/4 lb. patties placed on the foil. Placed two slices of mushrooms on each and sprinkled them all with the chopped veggies. Then he added the spices. When he was done he made 6 more 1/4 lb. patties and placed them on top of the others and mashed (for want of a better word) them together.

He sprinkled any left over veggies or what had fallen onto the pan over the top of the patties. And sprinkled with spices. Then he barbecued. Right before they were done he placed a slice of mild cheddar and a slice of provolone cheese on each. He used bakery fresh buns, served them with corn and a salad.

I'm not even going to try to do the calorie count on these. Just plan for that to be your only meal if you're counting. They were well worth it!

Now that is a good burger, with or without cheese.
Now I know what I'm having for dinner Monday night.
Nothing like barbecued burgers in the summer!

Yup this cheeseburgers are keepers. But then we're Buffett fans, so we're always trying for that 'Cheeseburger in Paradise.'
