This never happens, right? You have a bunch of ingredients in your fridge and pantry, and then “surprise!” you have family coming over or friends of your kids staying for dinner. Hurry, scramble! Make something nutritious and not boring.
Nope, never. Not me.
Thankfully, I have Rachel. She is a culinary genius. She can look at a few ingredients in the fridge and put together a dinner party. So when I accepted a challenge from KC Masterpiece BBQ sauce, I handed it directly over to Rachel. The challenge: create something amazing with 5 ingredients or less – one of them being their sauce.
And here is what she made – try not to salivate over your phone or keyboard.
Behold, the 5 ingredient, Double BBQ Cheeseburger!
Keep in mind, the toppings don’t really count as “ingredients.” Pile this sucker full of your favorites – bacon, lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles, avocado even! The burger itself is only 5 ingredients and as you bite into it, you will not believe the flavors! Even better, it pairs perfectly with simple summer sides such as grilled potatoes and fresh fruit. Let this phenomenal burger take center stage at your cookout and serve fresh fruit and veggies on the side – easy peasy!
