Instructions

Hamburger

  • Set your oven rack position to the highest level and preheat the oven to 350°F. (This is for toasting the buns, hamburgers are cooked in a pan.)

  • Add oil to a non-stick pan and allow the pan to warm up over medium heat for about 5 minutes.
  • Let the burgers cook for 5 minutes on one side before turning them. Flip the burgers only once and repeat on the opposite side, remove from heat.
  • Top with cheese and cover the pan. Let the burgers set for 5 minutes, allowing the cheese to melt.
  • Lightly spray or butter both sides of the hamburger buns bun. Place the buns in the oven gently toast until buns are warmed through and lightly crispy, about 5 minutes.
  • Remove buns from oven and top with the cheeseburger, lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles, ketchup, and mustard.
