Happy 4th of July from Massey Services!

As you know, we love celebrating holidays and that includes the celebration of our great country’s independence! As we celebrate our freedom, Massey Services proudly honors and thanks the men and women who serve our country. We are also thankful for the opportunity to be a part of our community and provide services to families such as yours. In honor of the 4th of July and the picnics and barbecues we enjoy as we celebrate, here is a patriotic burger to make at your cookout!

Star Spangled Burgers

2 pounds ground beef or turkeyMassey_2015_4thJuly_Hamburger_wFlag
1 large red bell pepper, diced
2 cloves fresh garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 (4 ounce) packages crumbled blue cheese

Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate. Mix ground beef or turkey, red pepper, garlic, salt and pepper in a large mixing bowl; divide and form into 16 patties. Place 1 ounce blue cheese in the center atop each of 8 of the patties. Top each cheese-topped patty with an unadorned patty, pressing the sides together so the cheese doesn’t fall out. Cook on the preheated grill until the burgers are cooked to your desired degree of doneness, 7 to 10 minutes per side for well done. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the meat should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).
