Who wouldn’t love to stuff their face in a cheesy burger after a long day of work. Well, we have your back. Here is how to get you a nice homemade cheeseburger to avoid the hassle of going to a restaurant and spending more money.
- 1 pound fresh ground beef chuck
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 4 slices yellow American cheese
- 4 sesame seed hamburger buns
- 4 tablespoons mayonnase
- 4 tablespoons ketchup
- 1 cup shredded iceberg lettuce
- 1 small onion, thinly sliced from pole to pole
- 16 crinkle-cut dill pickles, such as Vlasic
- 8 slices ripe beefsteak tomato
Set half the burners on a gas grill to the highest heat setting, cover, and preheat for 10 minutes. Clean and oil the grilling grate.
While grill preheats, divide ground beef into 4 even balls. Press them into thin, even patties about 1/2 inch wider than diameter of the buns.
Season patties generously with salt and pepper and place directly over hot side of grill. Cover and cook until grill marks appear, about 2 minutes. Rotate patties 90 degrees and continue cooking until well-charred on first side and juices are beginning to bubble up through the top of the patties, about 2 minutes longer.
Carefullly flip patties and top each with a slice of American cheese. Immediately transfer the patties to the coolest part of the grill. Toast burger buns over direct heat until nicely browned. Transfer buns to a serving platter.
Spread 1/2 tablespoon of mayonnaise and 1/2 tablespoon ketchup on each bottom and top bun. Layer lettuce, onions, pickles, and tomato on top of each bottom bun.
Return burger patties to hot side of the grill for 30 seconds to reheat, then place on top of bottom buns. Close sandwiches with top buns and serve immediately.
