Cheeseburgers Redefined

Have you tried the Borden Singles Sensations cheese slices? If you are wanting to add a new twist to your cheeseburger, you may want to try one of the six varieties available. This past week while attending the Dairy Farmers of America annual business meeting in Kansas City, I sampled the two newest varieties-3 Cheese Italiano and Extra Sharp Cheddar. At home, I have also tried the other varieties–Hickory Smoked Swiss,Bacon Cheddar,Pepperjack, and Chipotle Cheddar. I have liked all the flavors and find it is an easy way to add a new twist to one of my family’s Anglin Beef favorites! If you are eating Borden Cheese and eating beef you are supporting dairy and beef farm families just like us! We appreciate you!

Need a Rub?

Yesterday at the Arkansas Farm Bureau Women’s Conference in Little Rock, Donette Stump from the Arkansas Beef Council presented a beef workshop. She gave us great ideas to present to children and adults about beef. If you are needing an activity for a classroom or 4-H club, you can make snack packs using foods from the food groups and teach about nutrition and beef at the same time. Ingredients we put in each bag were: cheerios,goldkist fish crackers,gummy bears and beef jerkey. You can be creative and make up your own ingredient list. Donette did admit she forgot the M & M’s–not sure what food group those belong to but all the ladies said we would just make one for chocolate!
Here’s the rub!
4 tsp dried Oregano
4 tsp sweet paprika
4 tsp dried thyme leaves
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp ground black pepper
2 tsp ground white pepper
1 tsp ground red pepper

Combine all ingredients. Use on steaks,burgers,and roasts.
