Creole Carnival Burgers


2 pounds ground beef
2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
teaspoon salt
1 medium onion, chopped ( cup)
1 small green sweet pepper, chopped ( cup)
cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese (2 ounces)
6 hamburger buns, split


Makes: 6


In bowl, mix beef, Cajun seasoning and salt. Divide into 12 portions. Shape into 3- to 4-inchwide patties.

In bowl, mix onion, pepper and cheese. Spoon ¼ cup of cheese mixture into the centres of 6 patties. Top with remaining patties. Press edges to seal.

Grill directly over medium heat, uncovered, 14 to 18 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the centre of burgers registers 160 degrees F, turning over halfway through grilling time. Serve on buns.

Add your choice of accompaniments such as lettuce, sliced tomatoes, cucumber slices, pickles, carrot and celery sticks, if you like. 

Note: For medium heat, you should be able to hold your hand over heat at the height of food for 4 seconds.
