Ingredients

Smoked Cheddar cheese, sliced

4 onion rolls, sliced

Crisco® Butter No-Stick Cooking Spray

BURGER PATTIES:

1/2 cup Smucker's® Spiced Apple Butter

2 tbsps. Worcestershire sauce

2 tbsps. hickory smoke flavoring*

1 tsp. salt

1/8 tsp. ground pepper

1 1/4 lbs. ground beef chuck

GLAZED APPLES:

1 cup Smucker's® Spiced Apple Butter

1 large Granny Smith apple, washed, cored and sliced 3/8-inch thick crosswise

1 large sweet onion, peeled and sliced 1/4-inch thick crosswise, keeping rings intact

Directions

  1. COMBINE 1/2 cup apple butter, Worcestershire sauce, hickory smoke flavoring, salt and pepper in medium bowl. Crumble ground chuck into bowl; gently combine the ingredients well. Shape meat into four 5-inch wide patties; refrigerate.
  2. COAT unheated grill grate with no-stick cooking spray. Heat grill to medium-high (350 degrees F to 400 degrees F). Coat apples and onions (keeping slices intact) with 1 cup apple butter.
  3. GRILL burgers, apples and onions 4 to 6 minutes per side or until juices run clear on the burgers and the apples and onions are tender. Toast rolls, if desired.
  4. TOP each burger with cheese during the last 2 minutes of grilling. Place a burger on each roll bottom, top with grilled apples and onions and the roll top; serve.

Cook’s Note

To toast the rolls: spray the inside of each roll with butter flavored no-stick cooking spray. Place the rolls (cut side down) around the outer edges of the cooking grate; grill until golden brown. *Hickory smoked flavoring can be found in your grocer's condiment aisle.
