This Summer Add a Twist to Your Burgers
(NewsUSA) - Grilled summertime foods can often become repetitive and boring. With little or no imagination, ordinary hamburgers and hot dogs seem to become the norm. So, what can be done to add a twist to your warm-weather cooking adventures?
Even at the grill, raisins are a healthy way to get more fiber in your diet and to increase your daily fruit consumption. Just a quarter cup of raisins is a full serving of fruit.
Raisins are great-tasting summertime snacks right out of the box, and they are equally delicious in a wide variety of recipes. They can bring a tasty twist that elevates any dish beyond an everyday picnic to a gourmet meal.
This cheeseburger with sweet California Raisins is sure to be a family favorite:
Mix ground beef, raisins, salt, pepper and Worcestershire together well. Then, divide and shape into four patties. Grill until done. Meanwhile, slice ciabatta in half lengthwise, and toast cut sides on grill; set aside.
Combine the mayonnaise with honey-mustard and mix well. Then, divide and spread on toasted sides of ciabatta. Arrange a patty on bottom half of each ciabatta roll; top with two slices of bacon, one slice of cheese and one leaf of lettuce. Replace tops and enjoy.
