We love a cheeseburger loaded with fixins and sandwiched between buttery, toasty buns. Give this simple recipe a try at your next backyard barbecue.

Difficulty: Easy

Prep: 15 minutes

Cook: 15 minutes

Total: 30 minutes

Serves: 6


2 lb. ground beef

6 slices mild cheddar cheese

1 package Kountry Boys hamburger buns

6 tbsp butter

2 large tomatoes, sliced

1 white onion, thinly sliced

1 head butter lettuce, leaves separated

Pickles, jalapenos and condiments, to taste


Preheat grill to 400 degrees.

While grill is heating, melt butter in a small saucepan. Brush the insides of each bun with melted butter. Reserve buns.

Divide beef into six portions and form into patties, taking care not to over-handle the meat. Season generously with salt and pepper on both sides.

Grill patties for 4 to 7 minutes per side, to a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees. Place cheese slices on top of each patty during the last two minutes of cooking. Reserve patties on a serving platter.

Grill buns, butter-side down, over the coolest portion of the grill, until buns are slightly browned and crispy at the edges.
