Grilled Watermelon Burgers

The good old fashioned cheese burger gets a face lift with watermelon!

  • 4 hamburger patties-ready to grill
  • 4 slices white cheddar cheese
  • 4 slices watermelon about the same size as the burgers, seeded
  • 1 tablespoon ground pepper
  • 4 buns toasted

Grill the hamburgers almost to desired doneness but 30 seconds before they are done, place a cheese slice atop each burger. Place the watermelon slices on the grill and dust with the pepper to taste. Assemble the burgers on the buns with a slice of warmed watermelon on each burger on top of the cheese.


Makes 4 servings.
