I watched the Pioneer Woman doing something like this on the telly one day and it looked dead simple and delicious and decided to try to replicate it for us here at home.
They turned out great and we both really enjoyed. Simple to make and oh so delicious. No seasonings needed except for salt and black pepper.
Use a good butchers beef if possible, not the stuff from the shops which is pumped full of red dyes and water. The secret lies in searing them on a very hot pan quickly and pressing them down as flat as you can so that they cook quickly and brown nicely.
Because they cooked rather quickly all of the juices stay inside and you get a really tasty burger. The heat from the burgers melts the cheese . . . served on a toasted bun wth your favourite garnishes results in a burger that is very delicious indeed.

Delicious burgers, nicely browned on the outsides and filled with cheese. I like to serve them on toasted soft buns with lots of pickles, onions, tomatoes, lettuce, etc. But you can pick your own garnishes. Whatever you choose, your family will love these.

Bon Appetit! Enjoy!
