If you've felt this summer just wasn't the same, you may be right.  It's because you need to try a watermelon burger!

Look, we'll still get some hot days for the next month or so.  A hot burger on a hot day sometimes doesn't do the trick.  Why not cool down with grilled watermelon?

Check out this recipe I discovered for a juicy, tender and refreshing burger!  Just like beefy burgers or dogs, watermelon off the grill is heaven by itself.  But, add a bun and a few toppings, like cheese and you can officially call it a, "burger"!  Try it and let me know what YOU think!

Make a "Watermelon Burger with Goat Cheese"

You need:

4 slices of watermelon, cut 1 1/2 inches thick

salt and pepper to taste

Olive Oil

Goat cheese, or whatever cheese you like

4 square Ciabatta buns

Use the bread as a measuring tool,  to cut perfectly sized watermelon burger “patties".  Splash on olive oil and season with salt n pepper. Rub the grill grates with an oily paper towel.  This keeps 'em from sticking.  Then put the burgers directly over the flames. Cook for about 5 minutes per side, while moving them so they don't stick.  Add your cheese, and grill another 2-3 minutes.

Throw the buns on the grates, give them a good tan, then add the watermelon covered cheese.  You can also add lettuce or sprouts!
