CHEESEBURGER – September 18 – National Cheeseburger Day

Serves 4


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon crushed black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 4 slices cheese
  • 4 sesame buns
  • 4 lettuce leaves
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • Dill pickle slices to taste
  • Ketchup to taste
  • Mustard to taste


In a bowl mix the ground beef, egg, and spices together.  Divide the mixture into 1/4ths and patty out just larger than the sesame buns are across.  In the center of each patty put an indention in the middle about 1-2 inches wide.  Preheat a grill, or pan, to medium-high.  Grill on each side until grill marks can be seen on the bottom, about 3-5 minutes.  Turn over and grill on the other side for about 3-5 more minutes, until the patties feel firm.  Top with cheese and turn off the grill and close the lid until the cheese is melted.  Serve the patties on the buns and top with lettuce, tomato, pickles, ketchup, and mustard.

September is National Potato Month, tomorrow we celebrate!
