Juicy Homemade Cheeseburger Recipe
1 lb 80/20 ground beef
6 tsp salt, divided
4 tsp black pepper, divided
your favorite toppings:
Preheat your grill to medium high.
Form hamburger patties by dividing ground beef into 4 equal size balls and pressing into patties. Use your thumb and press a small divot in the center of each patty. Place formed patties on a plate. Season each patty with 1 1/2 tsp salt and 1 tsp black pepper.
Place formed hamburger patties on hot grill, and put the lid on.
Grill cheeseburger patty for 4-5 minutes, flip, put the lid back on and cook an additional 4-5 minutes on the other side for a soft, pink center. For a medium-well cheeseburger, cook 6-7 minutes per side.
Reduce heat to low, and top burger with american cheese. Put the lid back on, and let the cheese melt for an additional 1 minute.
Step your burger up a level, and when you add the cheese to your burger, place the buns on the grill too.
Remove from heat and let burger rest at least 3 minutes before serving. Place on your toasty buns, and top with your favorite burger toppings. D.J. likes his with ketchup, and thats what he got, and what is in this picture!
