1.25 pounds ground beef (80-85% lean)
2 Tablespoons bottled Barbeque Sauce
¼ large onion, finely chopped (about ½ cup)
¾ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
4 slices cheese, if desired
Place ground beef in a medium size mixing bowl.Add remaining ingredients. Use a spoon or your hands to mix. Divide the meat mixture into 4 equal portions. Loosely shape each portion into a 1” patty. Try not to press or pack the meat too tightly. Grill on one side, with the lid down, 3-5 minutes, flip and cook an additional 3-5 minutes or until done to your liking. During the last minute of cooking time, place sliced cheese on top, if desired, and allow to melt. Serve on buns with desired condiments.
Cook’s notes:You can make these burgers in advance and place them in a single layer on a wax paper lined plate. If you have more than one layer, separate the layers with wax paper. Refrigerate or freeze until ready to use.
