Cheeseburger Recipe

Cheeseburger Recipe

WebMD Recipe

  • 1 pound
    very lean ground beef, or fresh ground sirloin
  • 1/2 teaspoon
    garlic salt
  • 4 slices
    reduced-fat cheese
  • whole-wheat hamburger buns
    lettuce leaves, optional
    mustard, optional
    ketchup, optional
    barbecue sauce, optional
    canola cooking spray
    freshly ground pepper
  1. Divide the beef into 4 equal portions. Use a patty press (or your hands) to make four burgers. Sprinkle them with the pepper and garlic salt.
  2. Pan-fry, broil, or grill the burgers, using canola cooking spray to keep them from sticking to the pan or grill. When the burgers are almost cooked through, place the cheese slices on top and finish cooking (30 to 60 seconds). Remove the burgers to the serving plate. If desired, cover the plate with foil to keep burgers warm and moist.
  3. Dress your burger on the bun with the lettuce, sliced tomato and onion, mustard, barbecue sauce, and ketchup as desired.
