Preparing the classic cheeseburger -- 5 minutes

Making a classic cheeseburger couldn't be easier! All you have to do is wash the tomatoes, then cut them into slices. Grab the red onions and slice them too. Wash the iceberg lettuce and dry with a salad dryer or by hand.

Baking the burgers -- 10 to 15 minutes

Preheat your oven to 170 degrees Celsius or 428 Fahrenheit. Grab the grill pan and put on high heat on top of the stove. Add some olive oil or butter (we prefer olive oil) to the pan and add in the burgers. Grill the burgers until golden brown.

Flip them over a few times, but not too many otherwise the burger will fall apart and/or burn. Remove burgers from the grill pan and put them on a plate. Add cheese on top of the burgers and place into the preheated oven for about 5 minutes.

This will make the cheese melt more evenly, alternatively, you can add the cheese while the burgers are still in the grilling pan. This can make the cheese burn more easily, but it's up to you!
