Classic Cheeseburger

I love a good burger. A cheeseburger was always something that was a treat growing up. My mom didn't make them often as they were usually something that was grilled on the barbecue. So, living in Chicago they were really just a summer dinner menu item. But, I have since learned you do not need to make your burger on the barbecue. You most definitely can, but it's not necessary if you'd like to enjoy a burger in the winter months. So, now I make burgers frequently as you can easily make them on the stovetop.

Since going organic, it's harder to find a really good hamburger bun - especially in Mammoth! It's the most difficult part of the burger! Finding organic ground beef, cheese, and veggies is very easy. But, I struggle with the buns. So, I've been ordering these seeded ones from Dave's Killer Bread on Amazon, find them here. And get the recipe for my Classic Cheeseburger below.

Classic Cheeseburger

Makes 2


1/2 pound organic ground beef

salt and pepper

2 slices organic white cheddar cheese

2 organic buns with seeds

Organic Romaine lettuce

2 slices organic tomato

2 large slices organic red onion

Organic hamburger pickles


Method

Form burger patties into 1/4-pound burgers that are about 5-inches in diameter. Salt and pepper each side.


In a large skillet, turn heat to medium/high. Once the skillet is hot, place burger patties in the skillet. Cook for 2 to 4 minutes per side, flip and cook again on the second side. I like to cook my burgers to medium rare, but cook to your liking. Remove from heat.


Add the cheese slices and allow to melt (trick is to cover with a lid here).


To assemble: Lightly toast the buns. Add lettuce, burger, tomato slice, red onion slice, and pickles. Add condiments of your choice.


Serve immediately.


Gluten Free - Use a gluten free bun.


High Altitude - Follow the recipe as noted.
