Ingredients

Directions

Variations

To grill the burgers, simply roll the patties slightly thicker (3/8 inch) and grill over medium-high heat, 2 minutes per side.

Cook's Notes

Beef chuck with 20 percent fat makes for juicy burgers. The meat shrinks as it cooks, so form it into wide patties.

    Fantastic. Juicy and tender. The best cheeseburger I've had in a long time. I will definitely make these again.

    Deliciousness!!! These are amazing! Taste like a diner burger, but better! I served them with oven baked onion rings and they were fantastic! Definitely will be a repeat dinner!

    YUM! These are the best homemade burgers...and better than any fast food burger. You can control the amount of salt, but I am fairly generous (on one side only). Since the burgers are thinner, they cook faster, so dinner is ready in a jiff.
