Ingredients

4 oz ground beef

1 slice of cheese, preferably a good melting cheese

1 burger bun

Sizzle

Kosher salt

Freshly ground pepper

Burger accoutrements like Sizzle Mayo, pickles, and lettuce :-) 

Instructions

Active Time: 10 minutes

Full Time: 10 minutes

Serves 1
1

Season 4 oz ground beef with a pinch of kosher salt and freshly ground pepper. Portion into two 2 oz balls.

2

Slice a few small pieces of cheese or have a single melting slice ready to go.

3

Heat a cast iron griddle over medium heat and lightly toast one burger bun.

4

Increase the heat to medium-high and heat for two minutes. Give the griddle a few big squeezes of Sizzle.

5

Place portioned beef balls onto the griddle.

6

Immediately cover the first ball with a ~4x4" square of parchment paper. Use a flat metal spatula to press down on the parchment paper and beef. Use heavy even pressure until the patty is about a ¼ inch thick. Repeat with the second ball.

7

Once the patties are well browned on the bottom and starting to cook on the top, use the spatula or a bench scraper to flip the patties.


8

Top each patty with cheese and quickly stack one patty-cheese stack on top of the other. Let brown for 10 more seconds.

9

Move the patty stack to the prepared burger bun.

10

Top your burger with anything your heart desires. We suggest pickles, plenty of Sizzle Mayo, and lettuce. ENJOY!
