Prep time: 10 min

Cook time: 25 min

Yield: 6 burgers

Level: Easy


2 1/2 pounds 80% lean ground beef (such as chuck)

6 slices American cheese

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 onion, diced

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

Dill pickle slices, for serving

6 soft hamburger buns, split


Divide the meat into 12 loose balls, then form into 1/4-inch-thick patties. Fold 1 slice cheese into a small square; center it on a patty, leaving a 1/2-inch border of meat around the cheese. Top with another patty. Crimp the edges of the 2 patties together, sealing the cheese inside. Repeat with the remaining cheese and meat to make 6 cheese-stuffed patties.

Warm the vegetable oil in a cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring, until browned, about 10 minutes. Transfer the onion to a bowl and wipe out the skillet.

Add the patties to the skillet, season with salt and pepper, and cook 7 to 8 minutes. Flip, then poke the middle of each patty with a toothpick to release steam; cook 7 more minutes for medium well.

Put about 3 pickle slices on each bottom bun; top with the sauteed onion and a patty, then close with the top bun. Wait a few minutes before biting into the burger-the cheese is hot!
