Best Grilled Cheese Burger Recipe – How to Make a Grilled Cheese Burger
Grilled cheese burgers combine the best elements of two American classics – grilled cheese sandwiches and juicy hamburgers – into one drool-worthy, delicious meal. This tasty hybrid is perfect for satisfying your hunger no matter the time or season. Additionally, it’s simple to make and you can even customize it as per your preference!
– 1 lb ground beef
– 4 slices cheddar cheese
– 4 slices American cheese
– 8 slices white or wheat bread
– 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
– 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
– Salt and pepper
– Tomato slices
1. Start by preparing the burgers. In a large bowl, mix ground beef with salt and pepper according to your taste preferences. Divide the beef mixture into four equal portions and form each portion into round patties.
2. Preheat a grill or grill pan on medium-high heat, brushing it lightly with vegetable oil to prevent sticking.
3. Grill the patties for about 4 minutes on each side, or until browned and cooked through to your desired level of doneness (internal temperature should be a minimum of 160°F for well-done).
4. When the burgers are almost done, place one slice of cheddar cheese on top of each patty so that it starts melting.
5. Meanwhile, spread one side of each bread slice with a thin layer of mayonnaise.
6. In a skillet or on a flat top griddle, place four bread slices mayo-side-down over low-medium heat and layer one slice of American cheese on each piece.
7. Add the cooked cheeseburger patties to the skillet on top of the American cheese slices, followed by additional optional toppings (if desired).
8. Top each burger with another slice of bread, mayo-side-up.
9. Cook for 2-3 minutes, until the bottom of the bread is golden brown. Carefully flip each sandwich and cook for another 2-3 minutes, until the other side is also golden brown and all cheese is melted. Make sure to monitor the heat to avoid burning the bread.
10. Remove from the skillet, let them rest for 1 minute, then slice in half and serve.
