Classic Beef Cheeseburgers

Master this classic burger recipe and you'll be the king (or queen) of the grill from here on out!

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Ground Beef
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons steak seasoning blend
  • 4 hamburger buns, split
  • 4 slices cheese (such as Cheddar, American, Swiss, etc.)
  • 4 lettuce leaves
  • 4 tomato slices
  • Optional Toppings (such as ketchup, mustard, onion slices, pickles)

Instructions

  1. Combine Ground Beef and steak seasoning in large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Lightly shape into four 1/2-inch thick patties.

  2. Place patties on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 8 to 10 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 7 to 9 minutes) until instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers 160°F, turning occasionally. About 2 minutes before burgers are done, place buns, cut sides down, on grid. Grill until lightly toasted. During last minute of grilling, top each burger with cheese slice.

    Cook's Tip: To prepare on stovetop, heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Place patties in skillet; cook 12 to 15 minutes until instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers 160°F, turning occasionally.

    Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed Ground Beef. Color is not a reliable indicator of Ground Beef doneness.
  3. Line bottom of each bun with lettuce leaf; top with tomato slice, burger and toppings, as desired. Close sandwiches.
