These fresh ground beef burgers are mixed with ranch seasoning, shredded cheddar, and then topped with BBQ sauce - absolutely perfect with a cold glass of iced tea!

I really can't get enough of ice cold drinks right now. Paul and I have had arguments lately over the temperature of our air conditioner. This past week marked 5 months along with this newest little boy and my internal body temperature has decided to spike this week as well! I can't tell you how many times I've asked him to check if the air conditioner was even ON! 

It's honestly the other way around most of the time. I'm freezing with socks on and a blanket in the air conditioning and he's the one sweating to death. It's crazy what pregnancy does to you!

Really though, cold drinks, and I mean ICY cold drinks, are my lifeline right now. I usually start out the morning with my coffee (I NEED my caffeine fix in the morning, and my doctor agrees - ha), and then alternate the rest of the day between ice water and iced tea. I've become obsessed with Bigelow's Perfect Peach fresh brewed tea, poured over ice. They recommend you brew it hot, and then cool it down with ice or in the fridge, but I usually am too impatient for that. I just stick a tea bag into a glass of room temperature water, let it steep about twice as long, and then load it up with ice. Seriously, it's SO good on a hot day!

I cooked up these Juicy Cheddar Ranch Burgers to have with a fresh batch of iced tea - what a perfect summer dinner! The ranch flavor really pops in these burgers! Feel free to serve them with your favorite burger toppings like ketchup and mustard, instead of the BBQ sauce if you prefer. Our family could bathe in BBQ sauce, so you know that's what we had on our burgers!

Juicy Ranch Cheddar Burgers

  • 3 lbs ground beef
  • 1 packet ranch dressing mix (dry)
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 6 hamburger rolls
  • BBQ sauce/other burger toppings
Cooking Directions
  1. In a mixing bowl, combine ground beef, ranch mix, cheese, and Worcestershire sauce. Mix well with hands.
  2. Form into six burger patties and grill until desired doneness.
  3. Serve with BBQ sauce, lettuce, tomato, and any other preferred burger toppings.

I can't even begin to tell you how good these burgers were! Yum!

I've posted about my love for Bigelow tea before, and this is no exception! I love that they are a 100% American owned company and their products are easy to find at any local Walmart. At their Charleston Tea Plantation, they actually offer tours - on my bucket list for sure! 

They even support our troops by sending tea to them through their Tea for Troops program - such a honorable thing for a company to be a part of! Be sure to follow them on Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest for more updates!

  1. The burgers look and sound amazing, but that peach tea just makes me want a big glass of iced tea right now! #client

  2. These burgers look delicious!

  3. Oh my gosh - these burgers look incredible, and so does that tea! Iced Tea is one of my favorite summer drinks, and I'm with you - it has to be ice cold! And as far as the air conditioning, my husband has it like the arctic in our house and I am always cold! Kristi @ Inspiration Kitchen
