For me it doesn’t matter what time of year it is. A big, yummy burger is always ok. I’m not a huge fan of spicy hot flavors, but the cheese on this Bacon Habanero Burger is just the right heat level. Not melt your face off, but you can feel its presence. The sweet pineapple (optional, but delicious) takes some of the edge off and, of course, bacon makes everything amazing.
What You Need
1 lb. lean ground beef
1/4 cup BULL’S-EYE Original Barbecue Sauce
4 KRAFT Hot Habanero Big Slice Cheese Slices
4 drained canned pineapple rings
4 hamburger buns
4 slices OSCAR MAYER Bacon, cooked, broken in half
1 cup shredded lettuce
1. Heat grill to medium heat.
2. Shape ground beef into 4 (1/2-inch-thick) patties. Grill 5 to 6 min. on each side or until medium doneness (160 ° F), brushing with barbecue sauce for the last few minutes.
3. Top burgers with cheese; grill 1 min. or until melted. Meanwhile, add pineapple rings and buns, cut sides down, to grill; cook 1 to 2 min. or until buns are lightly toasted. Remove from grill buns. Turn pineapple; grill an additional 1 to 2 min. or until heated through.
4. Fill buns with cheeseburgers, pineapple, bacon and lettuce.
