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.
