It’s National Cheeseburger Day and my cheeseburger recipe is somewhat traditional but oh so delicious!! I used double beef patties and two slices of cheese for each burger for a bit of wow factor! However, you can certainly cut that in half, if desired. I like grilling the burgers but you can certainly cook these stove top in a grill pan. Enjoy!
The Best Cheeseburgers
1-pound 80/20 ground beef
Kosher salt and coarse ground black pepper to season
4-8 slices Cheddar cheese
4 Brioche hamburger buns, split
Toppings: Shredded iceberg lettuce, tomato slices, red onion slices, dill pickle slices, mayonnaise, mustard
Shape beef into desired number of uniform patties. If using two patties per burger, press to approximately ¼-inch thickness. Season with salt and pepper.
Preheat gas or charcoal grill to 400°F. Place burgers on oiled grates and grill until desired internal temperature, turning once. Top with cheese. Brush butter on buns and grill until browned.
Remove from grill and place on bottom half of bun. Assemble with desired toppings.
