Nothing beats the satisfaction, or taste, of biting into an all-American hamburger. A tasty classic that’s great any time of year.


  • 1-1/2 pounds ground chuck or sirloin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 large egg
  • 4 slices Cheddar cheese
  • 1 large onion, sliced in rings
  • 4 hamburger buns, halved and toasted
  • 1 large tomato, sliced
  • 4 lettuce leaves
  • 4 dill-pickle chips


  1. Using your hands, mix the ground beef, salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, and egg in a large bowl. Form mixture into 4 equally sized patties and put aside.
  2. Heat a sauté pan over high heat and cook patties, turning once, according to preferred doneness; about 4 minutes for medium or 5 minutes for well done. After cooking, place burgers aside and keep warm.
  3. In the same sauté pan, add the onions and cook for about 6 minutes until onions are soft and golden.
  4. Open hamburger buns and place 1 patty on the bottom half of each bun. Layer with a slice of tomato, a piece of lettuce, a dill-pickle chip and some onions; cover with top of bun.
