Colby jack burger, grilled to perfection.

I’m lucky to live where we can grill year round. Colby Jack cheeseburgers are on our menu often. We are not an adventurous burger family, kind of on the boring side. Last year’s French onion burger was a big step outside the comfort zone.

Colby Jack Cheeseburgers on the grill. Made with Cabot cracker slices.

This year’s burger goes back to simplicity. I know my family can’t be the only one out there that goes simple when it comes to burgers. Cabot cheese provided us with some cracker slices and I thought it would be a great use to pile them onto a burger. 

Fire up the grill it's #BurgerMonth!

Colby Jack cheeseburgers are a favorite because it’s one of our favorite cheeses. In fact I had to hide the cracker cuts from my son until I made the burgers. Once he got the go ahead, he polished off the few slices that were left. 

So, what are you waiting for? Go fire up the grill and enjoy these cheeseburgers. If these are too simplistic for your tastes, check out other burger creations from the bloggers below.
