Provolone Burgers Recipe

Grilled hamburgers that are seasoned with garlic, onion and herbs and topped with melted cheese are a summertime staple for us. A nice change of pace from the usual American or cheddar, mild provolone cheese is great on these beef patties. -Cheryl Maczko Arthurdale, West Virginia
