Enjoy this hearty dinner made with ground beef – a delicious meal that’s ready in 25 minutes!
pound ground beef
Your favorite toppings (ketchup, mustard, tomatoes, lettuce, dill pickle slices)
Put the ground beef, salt and pepper in the bowl. Stir with the fork until mixed.
Shape the beef mixture with your hands into 4 burgers. (They should be about 3/4 inch thick. Use the ruler to measure, if you like.)
Put the burgers in the skillet. Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes. Flip burgers over, using the pancake turner. Cook for about 5 minutes longer or until burgers are no longer pink in the middle. (To check if burgers are cooked, cut into the middle of a burger with the knife.)
Split each hamburger bun in half to make a top and a bottom. If you like, toast buns in oven (see note below). Put the burgers on the bottoms of the buns. Add your favorite toppings. Cover with the tops of the buns.
To toast buns - Set the oven control to broil. Put bun halves, cut side up, on a cookie sheet. Put cookie sheet in oven so tops of the buns are 4 to 5 inches from heat. Toast buns about 1 minute or until buns are light brown. Watch carefully! Use the pot holders to take cookie sheet out of oven.
Make Cheesy Cheeseburgers: After you flip the burgers, cook for about 4 minutes, then top each burger with 1 slice of cheese. Cook until cheese is melted.
