Simple Cheese Burgers

Everyone in our home loves cheeseburgers! We eat them once or twice a week. Instead of going out to enjoy them, we've been cutting calories, and making them at home. This recipe is super simple, and so easy to make. You can use ground turkey to cut down the fat even more! I just like the taste of beef in these, makes it that much heartier! Are these the healthiest on the planet? Hmmm probably not. But, they're wayyy better than what we used to eat, We would do take out instead of making them at home. You can get gluten-free buns, or even quinoa buns. The options are endless! 

Ok, so on the recipe:


1lb of extra lean ground beef
4 hamburger buns
4 slices of cheese- we used cheddar
1 tablespoon butter
Salt and pepper to taste

Toppings of choice: Lettuce, tomatoes, onion 


Heat a medium to large fry pan. Form the ground beef into patties, place onto pan. Sprinkle side with salt and pepper. Cook for 4-5 minutes. Flip the pattie, and again sprinkle with salt and pepper. 
Cook until desired doneness

Use another pan to warm the burger buns. Butter both sides of each bun, place down on fry ban until butter is melted into the bun, and slightly brown. 

See? so easy and simple

Yummy! I love cheese burgers. In Australia, we add a slice a beetroot to the burger too, it's delicious.
