Finishing the classic cheeseburger – 15 minutes

Preheat the oven to 170 degrees celsius. Heat butter or olive oil in the griddle pan and fry the burgers until golden brown. Flip the burgers a few times during cooking.

Transfer the burgers to a plate, and top with a few slices of cheddar cheese. Place the plate of burgers in the oven for 5 minutes, this will ensure that the cheese is evenly melted. You could add the cheese while the burgers are frying in the pan, if you prefer.

Cut the burger buns in half. Toast the cut sides of the buns in the griddle pan. Spread mayonnaise and/or tomato ketchup over the toasted sides of the buns, then top a burger with cheese, tomato slices, lettuce, red onion, pickles and fried onions. Enjoy!
