  • 2 pounds ground beef we used 80% lean
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 brioche hamburger buns
  • 1 ⁄2 cup salted butter softened
  • 8 slices American cheese
  • 4 slices red onion
  • Tomato slices lettuce (optional)
  • Mayonnaise ketchup, and/or mustard (optional)
  • Sliced pickles we used bread and butter pickles, but dill are great, too


  • Sprinkle salt and pepper over ground beef. Divide ground beef into 8 equal sections (1⁄4 pound each). Form a patty out of each section. Patties should be slightly larger around than the hamburger buns (they will shrink a bit while cooking).
  • Cover patties with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator.
  • Spread the inside of each hamburger bun liberally with butter.
  • Heat a skillet or griddle to medium high heat. Place buns, butter side down, on pan and toast lightly.
  • Remove toasted buns and set aside. (You can brush the tops of the buns with some of the butter on the
  • skillet if you’d like).
  • Add additional pats of butter to the skillet/griddle. Place beef patties onto the skillet, pressing each down
  • with a spatula. Brown on one side and then flip to brown on the other side. (Each side takes about 2
  • minutes to cook).
  • When you flip each patty, place a slice of cheese over it so that it can melt while the second side cooks.
  • Prepare each hamburger bun with condiments, a slice of tomato, slice of onion, pickles, and lettuce.
  • Stack two cooked patties and place on top of prepared bun.
  • Place bun top onto patties and serve.
