Grilling season may be winding down, but that doesn't mean you can't continue to enjoy making burgers at home. In fact, I'm not even really a fan of grilling burgers. The best way to make a burger is hands down in a pan or on a griddle, preferably cast iron. Just make sure that pan is super hot, and you're good to go.
I've been known to indulge in a cheeseburger every once in a while so I thought I would share a few of my favorite takes on them. They range from classic to a little bit more unique, but they all have one thing in common: cheese, and lots of it!
This burger will definitely feel familiar to many. It's got 2 patties and is topped with aged cheddar, pickles, onions, and tomatoes. Can't forget that special sauce either.
A Burger for breakfast is never a bad idea. Especially when it's got candied bacon, Sriracha maple mayo, and a fried egg. You know what they say. If it's got an egg on it, it counts as breakfast.
This burger kicks things up a notch. It's for those all too frequent times where you can't choose between a burger or a fried chicken sandwich. This burger is topped with buttermilk fried chicken, pepper jack cheese, pickles and lettuce.
A burger that needs no introduction, it doesn't get more iconic than this. This burger will definitely have you skipping the drive thru line. It's got 2 patties separated by a bun topped with cheese, shredded lettuce, pickles, and diced onion. Most importantly it's doused in big mac sauce and served on a sesame seed bun
Sometimes, you just want a classic cheeseburger. And other times, you just want to stuff your face. This is what that burger is for. 3 patties layered with 3 slices of oozing cheese and pickles for greasy perfection.
