Description

Spicy, juicy meat, perfectly melted cheddar. This cheeseburger isn't just any cheeseburger… It's the best double cheeseburger you'll ever have. We share our tips for reaching the heights of taste pleasure.


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 450 g minced ground beef (ideally 20% fat)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 4 slices burger cheese (use regular burger cheese or slices of your favourite cheese)
  • 2 brioche buns (toasted)
  • Large handful curly lettuce (sliced)
  • 2 large tomatoes (sliced)
  • 1/4 brown onion (peeled and sliced)
  • 8 tbsp sauce of your choice

Instructions

  1. Begin by preheating a griddle or large frying pan until it becomes hot, then brush it with vegetable oil.
  2. Shape the beef mince into four patties and sprinkle salt and pepper on both sides of each patty.
  3. Put the patties on the griddle and cook for approximately 3 minutes, or until they are nicely browned. Then, flip the burgers over and place a slice of cheese on top of each patty.
  4. Continue cooking for an additional 1-3 minutes until the burgers are cooked through.
  5. Once the burgers are cooked, remove them from the griddle and allow them to rest for 2-3 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, mix together the sauce ingredients and set the mixture aside.
  7. To assemble the burgers, place lettuce on the bottom of two of the burger buns, followed by tomato slices. Add a burger patty to each bun.
  8. Top the burgers with onion slices and another patty.
  9. Drizzle the sauce over the burgers and place the top bun on each burger. Serve and enjoy!

Notes

Customize toppings: Get creative with the burger toppings. Consider options like crispy bacon, avocado slices, sautéed mushrooms, or pickles to add extra texture and flavor to your burger.

Toast the brioche buns: Enhance the overall texture and taste of the burger by lightly toasting the brioche buns before assembling. This will add a pleasant crunch and prevent the buns from becoming soggy.

Explore different cheeses: Experiment with different cheese varieties to find the perfect match for your burger. Options like cheddar, Swiss, blue cheese, or even a spicy pepper jack can add an extra layer of flavor.

Have fun with variations: Feel free to experiment with different types of meats or plant-based alternatives, such as turkey, chicken, or veggie patties, to cater to various dietary preferences.
