Ground beef slow cooks in a tangy, cheesy sauce. Top with your favorite burger toppings!
I have always been a pretty serious pickle fan. Actually, our nickname for the boys has always been "pickle" and they both love pickles, too. Silas is the weirdo though and doesn't like them on his burgers, so he always picks them off. No clue where he got that from!
Kosher pickles were always my favorite as a kid. We called them "Jewish" pickles and they were always found in the deli department in big barrels. My mom would give one of us the job of fishing out a pickle from the barrel and tying it up in the wax paper pickle bag. The only problem was, the pickle was usually gone before all the lunch meat was!
Have you seen the Farmer's Garden pickles from Vlasic? I seriously LOVE the jars they come in - they totally remind me of those old pickle barrels! I tried the Zesty Garlic Chips and the Kosher Dill Spears, but they also have Bread & Butter Chips, Kosher Dill Halves, and Dill Chips to choose from. Each cucumber is hand-packed in a traditional mason jar which YOU KNOW I will be reusing for something cute! Farmer's Garden is celebrating the authentic taste of #FarmToJar with their Savor Simplicity Sweepstakes running from now until 7/31/14. Enter at www.farmersgardenvlasic.com for a chance to win weekend cooking adventure or summer entertaining package each worth $1,500! Plus just for entering, you can print a $1 off coupon. That sounds like a win-win to me!
These Crockpot Cheeseburgers are slow cooked in melty cheese, chopped garlic pickles, and onions. They are going to be a serious staple in this house when it's too hot out to cook, or even to grill! Serve them on nice crusty rolls, they're even great as a filling in wraps. Top them as you would a normal cheeseburger - yum!
2 lbs ground beef
1 medium onion, diced (I used frozen, no need to thaw!)
Brown ground beef in a large skillet and drain well. Transfer beef to a slow cooker that has been sprayed with non-stick spray. Add onion, garlic, mustard, pickles, and cheese. Cook on low 2 hours, or until cheese is melted. Serve hot!
I'd love to give you a free jar of Farmer's Garden by Vlasic pickles! The giveaway is open to all US residents 18 and over and runs from now until May 15th. Good luck!
