Cheesy Peanut Butter Burger
When my brother and I were younger and still in school, there were five other siblings to feed as our mother worked late hours to support all of us. There always seemed to be hamburger in the house and sometimes there was peanut butter and sometimes there was cheese, but rarely at the same time. As we grew and had our own families, the "cheesy peanut butter burger" was born. The burgers became so popular with friends and family, they couldn't seem to get enough. The joy of watching someone bite into this tasty morsel for the first time was absolutely awesom. Here is the "Cheesy Peanut Butter Burger" Connie's way.
