Learn How it Works...
1 pound ground beef (not less than 80% lean)
4 (2 tablespoons) Land O Lakes® Butter Balls
3/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1/2 teaspoon pepper, or to taste
4 slices Land O Lakes® Deli American
4 hamburger buns, split
Red onion slices
Form 1/4 of ground beef into ball. Using thumb, make 1/2-inch indent into center of patty; place 1 Butter Ball into center. Repeat with remaining beef and Butter Balls.
Tip: Forming Patties
Heat skillet to medium-high heat. Place burgers butter-side down into skillet. Heat 30 seconds or until butter starts to melt. Using spatula, smash burgers to 1/4-inch thickness. Sprinkle with half each salt and pepper. Cook 3-4 minutes.
Flip burgers over; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook 3 minutes. Add 1 slice Deli American to each burger; cover. Cook 30 seconds or until cheese is melted and internal temperature of burger reaches 165°F.
Form these burgers up to a day ahead, then cover and refrigerate before cooking.
