This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of BUBBA burger. All opinions are 100% mine.
When I think of what Spring, Summer and Fall have in common the first thing that comes to mind is spending time outside and grilling. Unfortunately, the second thing I think of is the yard work!!! HaHa We love to grill and there’s nothing better than a big juicy burger right off the grill and onto the bun!
When you want a burger, who wants to wait around?? We love that after the yard work is done, we can get the charcoal going, get the BUBBA burgers right out of the freezer and pop them on the grill. No need to defrost first!!!!! Let me tell you, they are so juicy and delicious and are made with 100% Angus Beef Chuck. The other thing is that BUBBA burgers are great not only on the grill, but can be done in a skillet and even in an air fryer!!! Yes, you know we love to Air Fry!
INTRODUCING THE BUBBA BURGER
There are several varieties of BUBBA burgers, our favorites are the Angus and Original Beef. As I mentioned, we keep our freezer stocked with them. The beef is high quality, completely free of preservatives, and they’re gluten free. You guys know we are always looking for easy to make meals. The BUBBA burger can be taken from the freezer, to the grill and are ready in 10 minutes!! 10 minutes!!!!!! Who doesn’t love that!
BUBBA BURGERS ARE SO CONVENIENT
BUBBA burgers are so convenient and cook to juicy burger perfection every time! We love to have them on those really busy nights when you have no idea what to make for dinner and you want a stress free meal. I mean, to have a great burger dinner ready in a few minutes is perfect any night!.
Also, these burgers take the stress out of a party. Knowing I can pull the burgers out of the freezer and toss them on the grill and they are ready in a few minutes, no mess to clean up, just gives me time to enjoy my guests and the food. Hey, now when we have a party we ask everyone to bring a dish to share and we make this Ultimate Chili Cheese BUBBA burger. There is nothing easier!! Everyone will be impressed with the juicy burgers and, if you have someone that can eat more than one, no worries, additional burgers can be made in a few minutes!! Everyone knows that one person who thinks your party is their own “eating contest”. haha! Yeah, well we’re ready for them! 😁

ULTIMATE CHILI CHEESE BUBBA BURGER
The Ultimate Chili Cheese BUBBA burger is perfect to have for a week day meal, a party, tailgating or if you just want an “out of this world burger” to enjoy while binge watching your favorite TV shows.
It’s so hard to put into words how good this ultimate chili cheese BUBBA burger is- the juiciness of the burger, the creaminess of the cheese, the pop of the hot dog and then spice from the vegetarian chili will make your taste buds dance!!!
We made homemade Vegetarian Chili (recipe below) that was wonderful with the burgers. When we make chili we usually make more than we will eat. This way, we can freeze the extra and it can be pulled out of the freezer and heated up in the microwave at any time. If you’re having this burger for a party just make the chili a day or two before, or you can always purchase chili to use in this recipe.

GRILLING THE BURGER
As I mentioned, the BUBBA burgers are so easy to make and have a ton of flavor. We use a charcoal grill so it can take a little more time to get the charcoal ready. Once the charcoal is ready or, if using gas, your grill is pre-heated. Place the burgers on the grill. Season the burgers to taste. We like just salt and pepper on a burger. I think it helps maintain the great flavor of the meat. When you start to see juices on the top of the burger flip them. TIP: Never “force” flip a burger or steak. The burger will let you know when it’s ready to be flipped. You’ll know because it will no longer stick to the grill and it should easily flip. You’ll have awesome instagrammable grill marks and the burger will be perfect every time.
Add the hot dogs to the grill on indirect heat. Hot dogs take very little time to cook. Just before taking the hot dogs off the grill, place them over the hot coals. Leave them for 20 or 30 seconds to get those fun grill marks.
When the burgers are done (161 degrees) about 10 minutes. Move the burgers off the direct heat. Add the cheese to the top of the burgers and put the lid down to melt the cheese. We used American cheese but Cheddar, Colby or Monterey Jack Cheese will also work. Really, you can use your favorite cheese.
When the cheese is melted, remove the burgers from the grill. Slice the hot dog vertical and in half. Cutting the hot dog like this ensures it will fit nicely on the bun!
BUILDING THE BURGER
Now the fun part!!!! (really, the whole thing is fun to make but this is the really fun part!) If you’re having a party let everyone build their own burgers. This way people feel like they have helped, they add what they want on the burger and gives you more time to just enjoy your BUBBA burger!!!!
To build the burger 1. Place bun on plate 2. Place burger on bun 3. Add hot dog 4. Add chili 5. Place second burger on top 6. Add a slice of onion 7. Add the top of the Bun 8. ENJOY!!!!
