Hamburger with Cheese


  • 1 lb ground beef (grass-fed if possible)
  • ½ Vidalia onion
  • BBQ Sauce – whatever your favorite is.
  • 3-4 shakes of Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • American cheese (or your choice)



Put the ground beef in a large bowl and let it come to room temperature.


Pre-heat a skillet. Finely chop the onion and cook until tender. You could keep going and lightly brown the onions – either way is really good. Once cooked, put the onions in a bowl or somewhere they can cool.


Put a good squirt or two of your favorite BBQ sauce in the bowl with the hamburger meat.


Add 3-4 shakes of Worcestershire sauce. Then add salt and pepper to taste.


Add the cooled onions and gently mix all the ingredients together.


Divide the hamburger mixture into 4 patties and set aside.


Light your grill or pre-heat a cast iron skillet.


Once hot, gently place the patties on grill and don’t touch them. Don’t smash them. Leave them alone for at least 3-4 minutes. If you can gently nudge the burger without it falling apart, flip it. Try to put the burger down on a different spot on the grill or pan. Cook for another 2-3 minutes.


While the burgers cook, get your buns and accoutrements ready. I like to slice an onion and grill it with the burgers.
