If your grill is large enough, you can cook everything at once. Give the hamburgers about a two-minute head start so that everything is ready to come off the grill at the same time.

Recipe Summary



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat grill to medium. In a large bowl, place ground chuck and herbs. Season with salt and pepper. Using your hands, mix ingredients together until combined. Form into 6 patties; set aside.

  • Brush the tomato and onion slices with oil, and season with salt and pepper. Grill the tomato and onion slices until slightly charred on both sides (onion should be tender), 4 to 6 minutes for tomatoes and 6 to 8 minutes for onions. Remove from the grill, and keep warm.

  • Grill hamburger patties, 3 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare. When they have reached desired doneness, place cheese on top of each patty. Grill until cheese is slightly melted.

  • To serve, stack slices of onion and tomato on a serving platter with romaine and endive. Place hamburgers on top.
