Servings 3 people

  • 1 wedge (6oz) of Artikaas Youngsters Peppadew® Gouda
  • 1 lb 80/20 ground beef
  • 1 large yellow onion, diced
  • 1 10 oz jar Peppadew® peppers, roughly chopped
  • 3 12-inch hero rolls, toasted
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • lettuce, cleaned and left whole or chopped
  • mayo
  • olive oil


  1. Grate the wedge of Artikaas Youngsters Peppadew® Gouda Cheese with a box grater.
  2. Generously season the ground beef with salt, then divide the meat into three equally sized patties, each about 1/4 inch thick.
  3. Place a large cast iron skillet on the stove and heat it over medium heat.
  4. Once the skillet is hot, add a drizzle of olive oil, followed by the diced onions and a heavy pinch of salt. Cook the onions until soft and slightly charred, approximately 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove the onions and set them aside.
  5. Place one of the meat patties in the cast iron skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes. *Depending on the size of your cast iron skillet, you may be able to cook 2 patties at once. Adjust the amount of ingredients accordingly to accommodate.
  6. Flip the patty and cook for another 2 minutes. Then, add 1/3 of the chopped Peppadew peppers and 1/3 of the soft onions on top.
  7. Using a metal spatula, chop the burger patty into small bits, incorporating the onions and peppers into the meat.
  8. Add one-third of the grated cheese. After 20 to 30 seconds, chop the meat once more and mix to fully incorporate the cheese into the meat
  9. Add the chopped cheesy meat into a toasted hero roll with mayo, lettuce, and tomato.
  10. Continue steps 5-9 for the rest of the patties. Enjoy!
