¼ tsp (1 mL) pepper

Place 4 cooked burgers in buns, spread each with mustard and top with mushrooms and a slice of aged Ontario Cheddar, Brie or Swiss cheese.

Italian: Spread 1 tsp (5 mL) pesto on each of 4 cooked burgers. Place Ontario Greenhouse Lettuce Leaf on each bun bottom. Place burger on lettuce and top each with Ontario Greenhouse Tomato slice and a slice or two of Ontario Bocconcini cheese. If desired, grill or broil to melt cheese.
