Serves 4 with leftovers
Add ketchup, mustard, and your favorite pickles at the table.
2 1/2 pounds (85 percent lean) ground beef
Salt and pepper, to taste
4 ounces sharp cheddar, thinly sliced
4 hamburger rolls or English muffins
1 medium tomato, sliced
1/2 sweet onion, thinly sliced
1. Prepare a charcoal or gas grill for medium-high heat. Form the beef into six patties about 3/4- to 1-inch thick, taking care not to handle them too much. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
2. Grill the burgers for 3 to 6 minutes on a side or until nicely browned on the outside and just about done to your liking on the inside. Set aside 2 burgers for the calzones.
3. Top the remaining 4 burgers with cheese, cover the grill, and cook 1 minute more or until the cheese melts.
4. Grill the rolls until lightly toasted. Place the burgers on the rolls with tomato and onion slices. Lisa Zwirn
