A cheeseburger, fries, and a coke or milk shake used to be the popular thing to order, when eating out, especially with teenagers. Back then we didn’t have pizza like we do today. My husband and I still get hungry for a good cheeseburger.
Yield: 4 Burgers
- 1 Pound Hamburger
- 4 Round Rolls
- 4 Slices of Cheese (American, Swiss, or Cheddar)
- Black Pepper
- Garnish: Ketchup, Mustard, Onions, Pickles, etc.
Divide the hamburger into four balls and press them between wax paper. Make sure they are flattened a little bit bigger than your roll; they will get smaller as they fry. Sprinkle them with salt and pepper to your liking.
Place them in a frying pan on medium-high heat.
When the edges start to turn brown, flip them over to cook the other sides. Press lightly with spatula to help keep them flat.
Continue to fry the hamburger until it is done; the juice should no longer be red. We prefer our meat well done.
Place a slice of cheese on each hamburger. Cover the pan with a lid and turn off the heat. In a couple of minutes the cheese should be melted.
Place each cheeseburger on a roll and add ketchup and mustard.
Cheeseburgers are quick and easy to make. They are also good with onion, lettuce, tomato, and mayo.
