Granny Slacks Burgers

The unusual name comes from the ingredients - granny smith apples, slaw, and jack cheese - aka, Granny Slacks. This is a great family-friendly burger - even granny's approve! :)

Ingredients 

*** Apple-Lemon Slaw ***
3/4 cup mayonnaise
4 tablespoons apple jelly
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
zest of half a lemon
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
pinch black pepper
1 head green cabbage, shredded
*** Patties ***
2 pounds ground sirloin
¼ cup apple jelly
¼ cup grated premium Monterey Jack cheese
1 tablespoon Worcestershire
2 garlic cloves minced
½ tablespoon bottled teriyaki sauce
1 egg lightly beaten
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
vegetable oil for brushing on the grill rack
6 – 1oz slices of premium Monterey Jack cheese
6 9-grain or whole wheat hamburger buns, split
¼ cup mayonnaise
1 ripe beefsteak tomato cut into thin slices
2 Granny Smith apples, cored and cut into thin wedge slices

Instructions 

Prepare a medium-hot fire in a charcoal grill with a cover, or preheat a gas grill to medium high. Prepare the Apple-Lemon Slaw – in a small bowl, make the slaw dressing using a whisk to mix mayonnaise, apple jelly, lemon juice, olive oil, lemon zest, salt and pepper until smooth. Toss the slaw dressing with shredded green cabbage in a medium bowl. Refrigerate until ready to assemble burgers. Wash hands with antibacterial soap. To prepare patties, in a large mixing bowl combine ground sirloin, apple jelly, grated cheese, Worcestershire sauce, minced garlic, teriyaki sauce, egg, salt, and pepper. Combine ingredients well while being gentle to the ground sirloin (not crushing it). Form into six equal patties that will fit the buns. Wash hands with antibacterial soap. When the grill is ready, brush the grill rack with vegetable oil. Place meat patties on the rack and cover. Grill until the bottom of the patties are browned, about 3-4 minutes. Carefully flip patties and continue grilling until done, about 5 more minutes for medium. During the final minutes of grilling, top each patty with a slice of Beechers Just Jack cheese. When the burgers are cooked, remove them from the grill, arrange them in a foil pan and cover with aluminum foil to keep warm. Place the buns around the outer edges of the grill and toast lightly. Remove when done. To assemble the burgers, on each roll bottom, spread 1 teaspoon of mayonnaise, place a tomato slice, stack with a cooked patty, cheese side up. On top of the patty, place a large spoonful of the apple-lemon slaw, top with slices of crisp Granny Smith apples, spread the top of the bun with another teaspoon of mayonnaise and top the burger. Serve immediately and enjoy!
