Equipment

  • cast iron skillet
  • food scale

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil to oil your skillet
  • 2 lbs hamburger meat I use 93/7 ground beef, I like to minimize the fat content.
  • 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 1 tbsp julio's seasoning
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire
  • 4 slices Asiago cheese or the cheese of your choice
  • 4 tbsp spreadable cheese I LOVE Alouette brand, garlic & herb flavor!

Instructions

  • First thing is first, get that skillet oiled up with the olive oil, so the meat doesn't stick.
  • Start preheating your skillet on low-medium heat
  • put your ground beef in a bowl and mix up with your hands
  • add your teriyaki sauce, Worcestershire sauce and seasoning into the bowl and mix together
  • Take your cheese slices and tear into quarters (so you should have 4 mini slices instead of one large slice)
  • measure out 4 oz of the meat mixture and roll into a ball then flatten out into a patty. (You will want it to be spread out and not too thick) Repeat with the remaining mixture.
  • After you have your patties ready, take one and spread your spreadable cheese onto one patty (if you are using it) and then add 4 of the mini slices of cheese on top
  • take another patty and add on top of the cheese patty, and press together.
  • Pinch the sides together and smooth out until you can't see the cheese and it looks like a giant patty; repeat with remaining patties
  • bring your skillet to a medium heat and add your patties. Depending on the size of your skillet, you should be able to cook at least two at a time (I have a 10" skillet and was able to cook 3 at a time)
  • Cook for 5-6 minutes, (this will depend on how you like your burger, I like mine medium or medium rare 😬 lol) then flip to the other side
  • put on your bun of choice, add your toppings and enjoy!!!

Notes

  • I recommend using a food thermometer like THIS one if you like your burgers a certain way.  For me, I like medium rare which takes about 4 minutes on each side.  I recommend 5-6 minutes for more well done.  
  • varying degrees for burgers are:  
    • Rare: 120°-125°
    • Medium Rare: 130°-135°
    • Medium Well: 150°-155°
    • Well Done: 160°-165°
  • I recommend the Alouette brand spreadable cheese
  • I used Arugula instead of regular lettuce and I personally really enjoyed the flavor more!
