Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

Heat the grill or grill pan to medium heat (350 degrees F) and rub the grate with a towel dipped in oil.

In a large bowl, mix together the meat, salt, and pepper until well combined. Shape into 8 (1/4-inch thick) patties and brush the patties with vegetable oil.

Cook the patties until browned on first side, about 1 to 2 minutes. Flip, top with cheese, close grill top and cook until cheese is melted and patty is cooked through, about 1 to 2 more minutes. If you are using a grill pan, tent the burgers with foil to melt the cheese.

Serve the patties on the slider buns with optional toppings.
