Cheeseburger Subs


2 Bakery deli-style sub rolls

1/2 cup ketchup

2 tablespoons creamy mustard sauce

aluminum foil

1 1/2 lb ground beef chuck

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1/2 cup prepared Cheddar cheese sauce, divided

1/2 cup pre-diced tomatoes, divided

1/2 cup pre-diced red onions, divided

2 cups lettuce shreds, divided


-- Preheat grill (or grill pan).

-- Slice bread in half lengthwise, leaving 1-inch uncut.


1. Combine ketchup and mustard sauce; spread over inside of each sub roll. Place rolls on a sheet of foil; set aside.

2. Form ground beef into four patties (wash hands). Season beef patties with salt and pepper. Place patties on grill (or in grill pan); grill 3-4 minutes on each side or until 160°F.

3. Cut burgers in half and place inside sub rolls; top each with 1/4 cup cheese sauce, 1/4 cup tomatoes, and 1/4 cup onions. Bring sides of foil up around roll and place over indirect heat on grill; grill (or bake in oven at 400°F) 6-7 minutes or until bread is toasted and cheese is hot. Add lettuce shreds, then cut each sub into 3 equal pieces; serve.

Note: Cut subs into even smaller portions for an easy-to-manage appetizer.

6 tablespoons cherry-flavored syrup

48 oz ginger ale, chilled

12 maraschino cherries

6 (1/2-cup) scoops vanilla (or other flavor) ice cream


-- Chill (12-16 oz) soda glasses in freezer for 30 minutes.

-- Chill soda.


1. Drizzle 1 tablespoon cherry syrup around inside rim of each glass. Slowly add ginger ale (leaving room for ice cream).

2. Add 2 cherries to each, then add ice cream (the soda will foam underneath the ice cream). Serve.
