Every year I count the days down until summer. Is it for the time I can spend outdoors, the ability to participate in my favorite sport, swimming, and the opportunity to entertain friends? Yes, but I have an absolute favorite reason; a reason that trumps anything else in my mind. It’s grilling season! The one season a year when I can encourage the men in the family to get outdoors and cook the main dish for me! Sure, I might have to prepare some side dishes, but how hard is it to open a bag of potato chips when I am in a hurry?  This year, I lucked out when I discovered the new Blippar App from Kraft Cheese.  It’s free to download to any apple, android, blackberry or windows device.

Why am I so excited to download the Blippar App? There are recipes for several varieties of  the Great American Cheeseburger! Best of all, they’re easy! We can have different burgers throughout the summer, although I am partial to the classic Bacon Cheeseburger.  It’s incredibly easy to make. All I needed for each burger  was tomato slices, lettuce, 1 piece of bacon, broken in half, my favorite burger recipe, Kraft American singles and a bun.  So simple, but so good. Sometimes I add a little Kraft mayonnaise , shredded cheese and some crumbled breadcrumbs to make an extra moist burger.

During a recent trip to Walmart to pick up supplies for a cookout, I tried the Blippar App for the first time. The app makes shopping an interactive experience.  By scanning the front of Kraft cheese products, I was able to pull up the recipes and have all the ingredients I needed at my fingertips.

My daughter was more excited about the opportunity to have her picture made virtually with Brad Paisley. “It would be even better if it were the real Brad Paisley,” she exclaimed.  Using the Blippar app we also have the opportunity to earn Paisley Points.   The Paisley Points  loyalty program is easy to use.  Whenever I purchase Kraft cheese or other participating Kraft products at Walmart, I scan my receipt using the Blippar App and earn points which can be redeemed for Walmart gift cards,  Brad Paisley CDs and t-shirts. You can find complete details and how to win a pair of Brad Paisley tour tickets here.

We’ve been munching on the Great American Bacon Cheeseburger all weekend, having hosted two cookouts for friends and family. It was a great way to spend the 4th of July weekend.  From the amount of cheeseburgers consumed, I think everyone agreed with me!

Sorry, that simply isn’t enough bacon. That burger demands at least two full slices (not halves) and three is better!!!

Ha Scott beat me to it but that’s exactly what I was going to say. Definitely NOT enough bacon. Otherwise it looks delicious! I must admit I have no idea who Brad Paisley is though… ?

That recipe looks delicious, but I have to agree with Scott and Kathleen. It needs more bacon. I love the recipe app. That’s ingenious.

My husband doesn’t read blog posts, but this one he would be head over heels in love with if he saw it. :) The cheeseburger is an American classic.

Yum! That cheeseburger looks absolutely delicious! I just bought ground beef yesterday, I think it’s time I made a cheeseburger too!

Looks good to me. And Kraft cheese is the best.

Lol. I might have to add… more bacon! I already have a burger on the menu for this week…. cheeseburger, of course! I just downloaded the app. Can’t wait to go shopping with it.

We only use Kraft! Any other brand leaves a waxy flavor in my mouth. Kraft does a great job! We are having burgers again tonight!


Sarah Bailey July 7, 2014 at 1:22 pm

Oh this looks delicious – I’m going to have to make my other half one as I think he would love it! x

That burger looks pretty good to me and it is still breakfast time. I think I might add a little guacamole to mine!
