I love grilled cheeseburgers, I also think a really good grilled cheeseburger made at home is underrated and easier than people think! With just a few minutes and the right ingredients you will be known for your cheeseburgers far and wide!
I have been told, literally for years, that I call my husband at the most inconvenient times. He insists I ‘choose’ to call him when he is under a piece of equipment, his hands are greasy, he is loading hogs or filling the planter.
Why, why, oh why would I do that? I don’t strive to be an inconvenience or irritate him I say! I don’t call just to say “I love you” or simply ask what he is doing because I am bored and my box of bonbons are empty.
I did discover a few years ago that a simple text saying ‘please call when you can’ worked like a charm. This seemed to work for a while but apparently one too many ‘please call when you can’ texts had gone out and it was learned they could be ignored or ‘not seen’!
I was desperate one day, couldn’t get a hold of him to save my life and resorted to all I had in my arsenal and texted:
“I have bought myself a one way ticket to Belize-cleaned out the bank accounts-maxed out the operating line of credit for cash-didn’t sign the loan papers you left this morning and burned all your clean underwear-my flight leaves at midnight!”
The phone rang instantly! Next time I will just hope he can smell these cheeseburgers on the grill instead of inconveniencing him with a call that supper is ready!
The secret to a good grilled cheeseburgers is 4 things – the hamburger you choose, garlic powder, onion powder and Worcestershire sauce. Well and a grill, gas or charcoal – but honestly I have also fried these in a cast iron skillet……….YUM!!!
People, the flavor is in the fat in meat! You don’t have to eat the fat but you need some fat in your meat to get really good quality tasting food! I like to use an 80/20 hamburger when I make these!
I tend to get 4 hamburgers from a pound of meat – or in fancy words I make a quarter pound burger! When forming the patty I also like to make a ball first and toss it back and forth between my hands like you might with a baseball – it packs the hamburger into a tighter ball, then I patty it out to the desired thickness! Sprinkle with the garlic and onion powder on both sides and pour on some Worcestershire sauce and allow to marinate at least 10 minutes before you grill!
