Grilled Cheese Hamburger

  • 16 slices White Bread
  • 16 slices American Cheese
  • Mayonnaise for greasing (plus more to serve)
  • 1 pound Ground Beef (80/20 blend)
  • 1 Beefsteak Tomato (sliced)
  • 6 large pieces Green Leaf Lettuce
  • Salt and freshly ground Black Pepper
  • Ketchup to serve
  • Mustard to serve
  • Bacon to serve
  • Pickles to serve
  • Caramelized Onions to serve
step-by-step directions
  • Preheat a griddle to medium. Lay out 8 pieces of bread and place 2 pieces of cheese on each. Top with remaining slices of bread. Spread mayonnaise on the outside of the sandwiches.
  • Divide meat into 4 patties (4 ounces each). Season with outside of each patty with salt and pepper.
  • Place the sandwiches on the griddle and cook until golden on the first side. Flip the sandwiches and cook until golden and the cheese is melted. Remove to a plate and begin to cook the patties. Place the patties on the grill and cook for 2 minutes per side or until slightly charred on both sides.
  • Place each cooked patty on a grilled cheese sandwich and top with your choice of lettuce, tomato, bacon and condiments. Top with another grilled cheese sandwich. Slice and enjoy!

    Helpful Tips:
    1. Using mayonnaise instead of butter on the outside of the sandwich helps prevent the bread from burning.
    2. Do not use lean ground beef for your burgers -- the fat in the beef melts and makes the burger even more delicious.
