Don’t Forget:

Berry Patriotic Cheesecake

You Will Need:
16 graham crackers (crushed fine)
1/4 cup melted butter
3 – 8 oz packages of cream cheese
1 cup sugar
5 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 pint of sour cream
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Blueberries and raspberries

What To Do:
Mix together the cracker crumbs and butter. Line a 9×13 inch pan with the crumb mixture and build up the sides.

Mix together cream cheese and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla, beat until smooth. Pour into crust. Bake at 325 degrees Fahrenheit for 40 minutes. Remove from oven, set aside and cool.

Increase oven temperature to 475 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix together topping ingredients (except berries). Pour over cheese cake. Return to oven for 5 minutes more. Remove and cool. Top with berries.

Red, White and Blue Burgers (Serves 8):

What You Need:

2 lbs. lean ground beef
1 (1oz.) envelope onion soup mix
1 clove garlic, peeled and finely minced or pressed
1 tsp dried Italian herbs
1/4 cup prepared roasted red bell pepper, drained and diced
1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
1 (3oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
Cooking spray

What To Do:

Put the ground beef in a large mixing bowl. Add 2 tablespoons of the soup mix, the garlic, Italian herbs and bell pepper. Mix well and divide into 8 portions.

In a medium bowl, combine the blue cheese, cream cheese and the remaining onion soup mix. Divide into 8 pieces. Place a piece of the mixture on each portion of beef, shaping the beef around the cheese to form balls. Flatten into burgers about 3/4-inch thick. Refrigerate an hour or longer before cooking. (This will blend the flavors and firm the cheese so it doesn’t melt too quickly.)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees (F). Lightly spray a broiling pan or rack set in a roasting pan with cooking spray. Set a large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat. When hot, sear the burgers for 1 minute on each side. Transfer to the prepared pan. Bake about 10 to 12 minutes, or until cooked through in the center.
