Philly Cheesesteak Burger
There are a few dinners our whole family can agree on. Burgers are at the top of the list. My teenage son would eat them every day (maybe twice a day) if I’d let him. It’s fun to mix it up and create delicious creations like this Philly Cheesesteak Burger, which oozes awesome flavor!
With 4 busy kids who have after-school activities and need chauffeuring, one of the easiest ways to get dinner on the table on busy weeknights is grabbing something from the freezer - like a BUBBA burger®. They are high quality; 100% USDA choice chuck beef with no additives (no added sodium or seasoning), so no unwanted fillers here.
In the early 1990s, the BUBBA burger® was created by Walter “Bubba” Eaves. Bubba had a mission and a dream to create a perfect and juicy burger. Well, he did it! Let’s get to this Cheesesteak Burger Recipe and see what you think!
How to Make a Cheesesteak Burger Recipe
Making a Cheesesteak Burger is easy enough for a weeknight or fun enough for get-togethers! First, grab your Bubba Burgers from the freezer and heat up your grill or cast-iron skillet.
Next, cut your onions and peppers into thin slices. Place in a medium bowl and toss with a little olive oil.
Let get grillin’! Place your frozen burgers on a medium-high preheated grill. Wait until you see juices flow on top to flip it over, and don’t press it down! Once burgers are flipped, cook until internal temperatures reach 161 degrees F.
Add a slice of provolone cheese to each burger at the last minute of cooking. The oozy cheese really makes this burger! If you’re so inclined, add two slices of aged provolone during the last minute of grilling.
Toast buns if you like them that way - we do!
To assemble your Cheesesteak Burgers, place burgers with cheese on buns and top with grilled onions and peppers. Add any other condiments and take a big juicy bite!
Tips for Making a Philly Cheesesteak Burger
