Celebrate the 4th with "America's Ultimate Cheeseburger" by Sargento

Nothing says The Fourth of July like a BBQ, apple pie, and fireworks.   When I think of BBQs, I think of hamburgers...better yet, CHEESEBURGERS.  Meaty, juicy, cheesy burgers.  Big, small, regular, sliders, whatever.  Burgers are the way to go.  

Sargento is geared up for the ultimate summer cheeseburger showdown!  Everyone's favorite cheese company has created the “America’s Ultimate Cheeseburger” contest on the Sargento Facebook page.  Sargento has asked chefs in New York, Miami, Chicago, Milwaukee and San Diego to square off and create a cheeseburger featuring their city or state’s famous culinary flair and Sargento all natural, never processed cheese.  

Since I live in Miami, my vote is going toward The Filling Station Cheeseburger.   You can try their recipe at home.
