Fajita Burgers

Cook the homemade hamburgers on the grill.

With these homemade hamburgers, you won’t be asking, “Where’s the beef?” A half pound of beef will be right there on your bun – in two forms. You’ll have a nice quarter-pound grilled burger patty, and on top of that, you’ll get ¼ pound of fajita steak, with all the trimmings. It’s beef and more beef!

For these homemade burgers to be served properly, you’ll need to use buns or rolls with high domed lids. You’ll need to scoop out some of the bread from the top halves of the buns to make room for the fajita meat and toppings.
