Kraft Singles Turkey Poblano Burger

Growing up, Kraft Singles were often a part of my daily diet.  Whether I was having an egg sandwich to start the day or I was enjoying my ham and cheese sandwich at lunch, I always loved adding Kraft Singles to my meals.

My Mom also made us amazing dinners growing up (and still does) and Kraft Singles were our go to cheese.  With 4 kids, Kraft Singles were affordable and a great way for us to get some more calcium in our bodies.

As an adult, Kraft Singles take me back to the good old days.  Neal also loves Kraft Singles, bouncing between the 2% slices and the fat-free slices.  Last night for dinner I decided to take my tradition cheeseburger recipe to a new level, creating a turkey poblano cheeseburger with my favorite Kraft Singles.

To start, I diced two poblano peppers, removing the seeds before dicing the peppers.

I then added the peppers to a small pan with 1 tbsp of vegetable oil.  I allowed the peppers to cook down for about 15 minutes on low heat while I prepared the ground turkey.

To the ground turkey I added hamburger seasoning, chili powder, and cumin.

Once the peppers were cooked, I cooled them in the freezer for about 5 minutes before adding them to the ground turkey mixture.

I then mixed the peppers and ground turkey together and formed 4 patties.

While the burgers cooked I prepared the toppings (lettuce, tomato, and my trusty Kraft Singles).

About 15 minutes later, the burgers were done and ready to be consumed!

I served the burgers on a potato bun and topped with lettuce, tomato, yellow mustard, and a 2% American cheese Kraft Single.

Along side the burgers I served Cheddar Pop Chips.  Yummy!

Technically Monday night was our first meal together in our new home but last night’s dinner was definitely one for the memory books.  Being able to cook Neal dinner and to sit beside him while we ate dinner and watched Tommy Boy was just perfect!

I’m one happy girl and look forward to cooking many more meals for Neal and I (and our family one day).

    To be completely honest, Kraft Singles are the reason I thought I hated cheese for 15ish years of my life. Oddly enough, I didn’t realize this until a few months ago.
    As a child, we always had Kraft Singles around but I mostly remember using them to give our dog his pill-form medicine. We would wrap the pill in a single so he would gobble it all up. At some point, I must have tried a bit of it and HATED it. From that point on, I didn’t eat cheese. At all. I’m from WI, mind you, so this was almost unheard of. I assumed all cheese tasted just like Kraft Singles and I never wanted to taste that again! Luckily, at the ripe old age of 19, I decided to give a slice of good ol’ Wisconsin cheddar a try. I was in love. Thus began my cheese infatuation. I seriously gained at least 5 pounds the summer that I started eating cheese. I had Kraft Singles melted on burgers or in a gooey grilled cheese but I didn’t try one cold again until this spring. The moment I tasted it, I was taken back to my childhood when I first tasted that Kraft Single and immediately knew that’s why I didn’t eat cheese for all of those years. Pizza without toppings, mac & cheese sans cheese, you name it. I was missing out all of those years because I hated the flavor of a cold Kraft Single. Melted though, that stuff is the bomb! :)

    P.S. Sorry for the novel.

    I love ALL cheese and Kraft singles fit right in on that list!!! We grew up on these growing up – either on cheese & ham sandwichs, tunafish sandwhichs, grillcheese, burgers or by itself. It’s SO SO good!!! Oh the many memories rushing back that involve kraft singles!
