Learn How it Works...
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.
Combine ground chuck, Worcestershire sauce and seasoning salt in bowl. Shape mixture into 12 (4-inch) square patties. Place patties onto waxed paper.
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.
Heat gas grill on medium or charcoal grill until coals are ash white.
Place patties onto grill. Grill 6 minutes. Turn burgers; continue grilling 4-5 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 160°F or desired doneness.
Meanwhile, spread cut bun surfaces with Butter with Canola Oil. Grill, cut-side down, 2-3 minutes or until buns are golden brown.
Top bottom half of bun with 1 slice tomato, burger, avocado slices and top half of bun.
If you are substituting Deli American for the sharp white Cheddar, ensure that all cheese has been enclosed in the patty. Fold in corners of cheese slice if necessary.
Land O Lakes® Deli American slices can be used instead of the Cheddar. Use 6 (3/4-ounce) slices total, topping each of 6 burger patties with 1 slice in step 2. Ensure that all cheese has been enclosed in the patty. Fold in corners of cheese slice if necessary.
When placing the sharp white Cheddar cheese slices on patty, place 3 slices vertically next to each other and one slice horizontally across the bottom for best results.
