If you have followed AJ and me on social media for the past few weeks, you’ll know that we went on a road trip and camped a lot. Though I try to take this sort of time to get offline and “off-the-grid” it’s hard for me to completely separate myself from social media. Photos of the gorgeous nature that I experience are hard not to share with everyone. And, of course, when we’re out and about, away from home camping, we’re grilling food, like these double cheese cheeseburgers made with Safeway’s O Organics® Ground Beef! Now, if it were up to me, my preferred choice of making food would be grilling. There’s something summertime magical about cooking over an open flame outside. So, when Safeway reached out to me about making something with their O Organics® Ground Beef, I knew immediately what I wanted to make.
This is one of my go-to recipes for burgers because it’s easy to prepare and packed full of flavor. With garlic and onion powder seasonings and the addition of shredded cheese in the burger itself as well as two slices of different cheeses on top, this double cheese cheeseburger is the definition of sSummertime grilling favorites! AJ and I are pretty selective about our meat intake. I don’t eat a huge amount of meat but when I do, I try to eat grass fed organic, which is why I love Safeway’s O Organics meats, especially their ground beef.
Because Safeway wants awesome tasting organic food to be available to everyone, they created their O Organics® line, at a price that is totally within everyone’s reach. The O Organics® line of meat (including USDA certified organic chicken and beef) is exclusive to Safeway and other Albertsons stores and features is a great quality products that anyone can use as an ingredient for their families’ everyday weeknight meals.
O Organics® products are available at local Safeway stores, like the one I shop at here in San Francisco, but you can also find them at all Albertsons family of Companies grocery stores, including Albertsons, ACME Markets, Jewel-Osco, Vons, Pavilions, Randalls, Tom Thumb, Shaw’s, Star Market, United Express, United and Carrs/Safeway.

Double Cheese Cheeseburgers
By Irvin Lin
The grass fed O Organics® ground beef makes for juicy grilled burgers and the O Organic® cheese and seasonings add that extra dimension of flavor that makes for an easy-to-prepare. Serve the burgers on Open Nature® brand buns or the bun of your choice!
1 pound (455 g) O Organics® ground beef
1/2 cup(70 g) bread crumbs
1 cup (90 g) O Organics® Mexican blend shredded cheese
1 teaspoon O Organics® garlic powder
1 teaspoon O Organics® onion powder
1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1 teaspoon Kosher salt
1 large egg
4 slices O Organics® Monterey Jack cheese
4 slices O Organics® white Cheddar cheese
4 Open Nature® Sandwich Buns
Optionally serve with:
red onion slices
butter lettuce leaves
1. Place the O Organics® ground beef, bread crumbs, shredded cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, pepper, salt and egg in a large bowl. Mix with a wooden spatula or with your hands until all the ingredients are uniformly distributed.
2. Form 4 hamburger patties with your hand, making sure there is a slight indentation in the middle of the patty (this will help keep the burger from shrinking too much on the grill).
3. Fire up the grill on maximum heat. Once hot, place the burgers on the grill and lower the grill to medium high. Grill covered, for about 2 to 3 minutes, or until the burger has started to crust and releases easily from the grill. Do not press down on the burger! Flip the burger and grill for another 2 to 3 minutes.
4. Place a slice of Monterey Jack and a slice of white Cheddar cheese on each burger. Turn the heat off, and cover for another minute or two until the cheese has melted. Place on the sandwich buns and serve with your choice of sliced tomatoes, red onion slices, lettuce leaves, pickles and whatever condiment you like on a burger.
Makes 4 Cheeseburgers.
