Double-Double Style Hamburger

 

1
plain hamburger bun
1/3
pound ground beef
Dash salt
1
tablespoon Kraft Thousand Island dressing
1
large tomato slice (or 2 small slices)
1
large lettuce leaf
2
slices American cheese
1
whole onion slice (sliced thin)

 

 

Preheat a frying pan over medium heat.  Lightly toast both halves of the hamburger bun, face down, in the pan.  Set aside.

 

Separate the beef into two even portions and form each half into a thin patty slightly larger than the bun.  Lightly salt each patty and cook for 2 to 3 minutes on the first side.  Flip the patties over and cook about 2 minutes longer.  Turn over and place 1 slice of cheese on each patty.  Cook for 3 minutes longer.

 

Assemble the burger in the following order from the bottom up

Serves 1.  Variation:  Grill onion slice in hot pan after toasting bun, but before cooking meat.
