  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 4 slices pepper Jack cheese or Monterey Jack cheese

  • 4 slices green pepper

  1. Shape beef into eight thin patties. Place a slice of cheese, onion and green pepper on four patties. Top with another patty; press edges to seal. Grill until no longer pink. Serve on rolls. Yield: 4 servings.
In general, sweet onions have thin, light outer skins and contain a high level of water and sugar. These onions (including Vidalia and Walla Walla) are typically in season from April through August.
