American Cheeseburger


Main course for 4

15 minutes preparation

+ 10 minutes grilling



  • 500 g / 1 lb minced beef
  • 1 tablespoon salt and pepper
  • 4 burger buns / bread rolls
  • 1 egg
  • 1 red onion
  • 2 pickles
  • 1 large tomato
  • 4 large lettuce leaves
  • 4 slices of cheddar cheese (or similar)
  • Some ketchup and mayonnaise



  • Slice the red onion, pickles, tomato and lettuce leaves.
  • Season the ground beef with salt and pepper. Beat the egg and mix it with the meat. Shape the mixture into 4 burgers, without pressing too hard.
  • Grill the burgers for 5 minutes on the first side. Then flip them over on the grill and lay one slice of cheese on each. Grill for another 5 minutes.
  • In the meantime, slice open the burger buns and place the open buns 2 at a time on the grill. Grill each bun for 2-3 minutes.
  • Put some ketchup and mayonnaise on the bottom half of each bun and place a burger on top, together with a few slices of red onion, pickles, lettuce and tomato and some more sauces if you like.


Tip: If you prefer a spicy burger, add some steak sauce or Worcestershire sauce instead of ketchup.
