Prep Time
1 hr 15 min
Total Time


2 pounds ground chuck or ground beef

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon seasoning salt

6 (3/4-ounce) slices Land O Lakes® Deli American 

6 hamburger buns, split

Land O Lakes® Butter with Canola Oil

6 tomato slices

1 ripe avocado, pitted, peeled, sliced


 *Substitute 4 ounces Land O Lakes® Sharp White Cheddar Cheese, cut into 24 thin slices.

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine ground chuck, Worcestershire sauce and seasoning salt in bowl. Shape mixture into 12 (4-inch) square patties. Place patties onto waxed paper. 

  2. STEP 2

    For each burger, place 1 slice cheese on top of 1 patty; top with another patty. Using fork, crimp edges of patties together to seal. Refrigerate 30 minutes or until firm.

  3. STEP 3

    Heat gas grill on medium or charcoal grill until coals are ash white.

  4. STEP 4

    Place patties onto grill. Grill 6 minutes. Turn burgers; continue grilling 4-5 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 160°F or desired doneness.

  5. STEP 5

    Meanwhile, spread cut bun surfaces with Butter with Canola Oil. Grill, cut-side down, 2-3 minutes or until buns are golden brown.

  6. STEP 6

    Top bottom half of bun with 1 slice tomato, burger, avocado slices and top half of bun.

Tip #1

Ensure that all of the Deli American cheese has been enclosed in the patty. Fold in corners of cheese slice if necessary.

Tip #2

If substituting sharp white Cheddar, place 3 slices vertically next to each other on patty and one slice horizontally across the bottom for best results.
