Philly Cheese Burgers

It is quite clear that summer is right around the corner and who isn't happy about that?! I get so excited for summer, for many reasons but one is for the great food that goes along with it. The fresh produce from the market, the fresh herbs from my mini-garden, and all of the wonderful grilling. We like to grill burgers but since I have already posted my standard burger recipe (see the Juicy Lucy) I am forced to try different variations. This is good for you the reader, and good for us the eaters. This recipe is inspired by the Philly Cheese steak. Take your basic burger and add caramelized onions and sauted peppers. Serve with a glass of lemonade and welcome summer!

Philly Cheese Burgers
1/4 lb hamburger patties (any way you like them)
1/2 green bell pepper
1/2 red or orange bell pepper
1 small yellow onion
2 Tbs. butter
1 Tbs. olive oil
1/4 tsp. chicago steak seasoning
1/2 Tbs. balsamic vinegar
slices of provolone cheese

Start pepper and onion topping a bit before grilling your burgers.
Slice and saute peppers and onions and add them to a large skillet with olive oil and butter over medium heat. Add seasonings and balsamic vinegar. Cook until peppers are tender but not soggy. Place peppers on top of a grilled burgers and add a slice of provolone cheese. Top with a toasted bun to melt cheese.
