As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program, I was asked to sample some Sargento cheese. Specifically to compare all-natural Sargento Cheese to processed cheese slices. Now, when I looked like this...
First, I went to the fridge and unwrapped the little yellow square.
fold in half.
fold into a nice little square....and eat! This was the only way I ever ate this stuff. And I ate a lot of it.
I tried the same method with the Sargento Pepper Jack cheese.
Equally effective, however, much more tasty. I do have good memories of those cheese slices though.
I decided to use the pepper jack cheese to top some turkey burgers I made for lunch.
Zesty Turkey Burgers
1 pound ground turkey
2 bell peppers of your choice (I used yellow and orange)
1 whole onion
1 Tablespoon Sriracha
salt and peper to taste
Remove top and seeds from bell peppers. Cut into small chunks.
Cut your onion in half and then slice your halves lengthwise.
Use a medium sized saute pan and coat bottom with olive oil. Add onions and peppers and cook until softened Remove from heat and set aside.
In a large bowl combine ground turkey, the pepper and onion mix, Sriracha, and salt and pepper. Divide evenly until 4 patties.
Once again, coat your pan with oil. Add the 4 patties. Cook for 7 minutes on first side, or until your get a nice, crisp crust, then flip and cook for another 7 minutes. Add your favorite cheese for the last minute of cooking.
For comparison, I added both types of cheese to my turkey burgers.
I have to say that both melted quite nicely! However, I didn't sample the processed cheese burger.
I really enjoyed the pepper jack cheese. It had just enough spice and it added great flavor to the turkey burgers. I would definitely buy it again.
