I had a Freddy's burger for the first time and I'm in love. Super thin and crispy edges make this "steak burger" so delicious.Yield: 1 serving
|4 ounces||ground beef chuck (roughly)|
|salt to taste|
|1 slice||American cheese (or cheddar)|
|1 whole||hamburger bun (small, standard size)|
Heat a griddle over medium-high to high heat. Divide beef in half and roll into rough balls. One at a time, place the beef on the griddle. Place a large (non-slotted) spatula on top and use a coffee mug or large measuring cup to push the spatula and smash the patty very flat. Repeat with the other patty. Sprinkle them both with salt.
Cook them for 1 to 2 minutes, or until they're nice and brown on the first side. Flip them over, wait 45 seconds, the place the slice of cheese on one of the patties. Place the other patty on top of the cheese, give it 15 to 20 seconds to melt, then place directly on the bun.
Serve with ketchup, pickles, mustard, mayo, jalapeno slices, etc.
