Who doesn’t love a juicy cheeseburger! Since I don’t have a good grilling set up, I have defaulted to pan frying steaks and burgers. A burger makes a delicious dinner that you can whip in 15 min.
serves: 2 difficulty: easy prep time: 15 min
- 2 burgers – from a good source
- 2 slices of Cheddar (or your favorite cheese variety that goes on the burger)
- 2 brioche hamburger buns
- 2 tbs butter
- 2 tbs canola or vegetable oil
Heat a fry pan, and add the oil. Once the oil shimmers add the burgers, reduce the heat to medium, and cover the pan with a lid. Fry the burgers for 2 1/2 min, then flip them and cook for another 2 min. Then place the cheese slices on top of the burgers, cover with the lid again, turn off the heat, and keep the patties in the pan for another minute. That’s enough for the cheese to melt.
While the burgers are cooking, slice the buns in the middle (if they are not pre-sliced), and toast them. I toast them directly on my stove burners – making sure not to burn them. Then spread butter on both halves of the toasted bun.
Take the patties out of the pan, place on the buns, and serve immediately. In this case I served with Brussels spouts.
