Hyvee Culinary Expert TipChile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes. When working with hot peppers, wear protective gloves.
Prepare a charcoal or gas grill with a lightly greased grill rack for direct cooking over medium heat.
In a large bowl, combine beef, green onions, Worcestershire sauce and garlic paste. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Shape into four 3/4-inch-thick patties, 8 ounces each.
- Grill for 12 to 14 minutes or until internal temperature of patties reaches 160 degrees, turning once halfway through. During the last 2 minutes of grilling, place buns, cut sides down, directly over heat to toast. Remove from grill; let patties rest 5 minutes.
- To serve, place patties on bun bottoms; top with Corn Cheese Sauce. If desired, add lettuce, tomato, and/or red onion. Add bun tops.
