Classic Hamburger Recipe
  • Combine the beef and salt and pepper in a bowl. Using your hands, mix well. Form into 6 patties. Refrigerate until ready to grill.
  • Prepare a charcoal or gas grill: Lightly spray the grill rack with vegetable oil cooking spray. Light the coals or heating elements, and let them burn or heat until hot.
  • For medium-rare, grill the burgers for 3- minutes on each side.
  • After turning burgers, place cheese on top; grill for the remaining 3-4 minutes.
  • Toast the bun if you prefer and assemble the burger with your favorite toppings, like bacon, mushrooms, tomatoes, lettuce and cheese, to name a few.
