Cooper Cheese Beer Dip Tater Tot Burger
INGREDIENTSFor the burgers:
onion Kaiser rolls
1-pound ground beef
10-15 Tater Tots (add more for a side if desired)
1/4 to 1/2 yellow onion, sliced
8-ounce package sliced mushrooms, cleaned
For the Cooper Beer Dip:
2 cups Cooper Sharp White cheese, shredded (or about 8 slices torn into small pieces)
1/3 cup Pilsner beer
Or use Mason Jar Cheese Sauce and add your choice of beer (if making sauce from scratch, reduce water in recipe for thicker consistency).
Boston or bib lettuce
Bake Tater Tots according to package directions.
While tots are baking, prepare the hamburgers. In a small bowl, sprinkle seasoned salt onto ground beef and mix well. Divide meat and form into 2-3 burger patties.
In a medium skillet on medium heat, cook the burgers for 6-8 minutes per side, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F and burgers are browned all the way through.
In a skillet with a small amount of olive oil, sauté onions and mushrooms.
Prepare the Cooper Cheese beer dip:
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, bring beer to a slow simmer. Add Cooper Cheese and stir until consistency is smooth. Or if you’re using premade Mason Jar Cheese Sauce, reheat sauce in a microwave-safe container and stir in your beer of choice.
Assemble your burgers:
Dollop the bottom section of each bun with a spoonful of Cooper Cheese Beer Dip. Place an optional lettuce leaf and slice of tomato over beer cheese dip, then top with a burger patty. Add a layer of sautéed onions and mushrooms. Top with about 5 Tater Tots, then add a generous drizzle of more Cooper Cheese Beer Dip. Cap each burger with the top of the onion roll, then serve and enjoy!
