1 pound ground beef (80% lean, 20% fat)
2-3 tsp Flip’n Burgers Seasoning
4 slices of cheddar cheese
4 hamburger buns
Ketchup and mustard (optional)
Preheat your grill or skillet over medium-high heat.
In a mixing bowl, Flip’n Burgers Seasoning. Use your hands to mix everything together until well combined, but be careful not to overwork the meat as it can make the burgers tough.
Divide the meat into 4 equal portions and shape each portion into a patty that is about 3/4 inch thick.
Use your thumb to make a small indentation in the center of each patty. This will help the burger cook evenly and prevent it from puffing up in the middle.
Place the patties on the grill or skillet and cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side, or until they reach your desired level of doneness.
During the last minute of cooking, place a slice of cheddar cheese on top of each patty and allow it to melt.
Toast the hamburger buns on the grill or in the oven until lightly browned.
Assemble the burgers by placing a lettuce leaf and a tomato slice on the bottom bun. Place the cooked patty with melted cheese on top, followed by pickles and a squirt of ketchup and mustard if desired. Finish with the top bun.
Serve immediately and enjoy your delicious homemade burgers!
