1 pound ground beef, 90 percent lean/10 percent fat
Pack of 4 Rounds Bakery buns
8 slices American cheese
1 white onion, diced
Salt and pepper, to taste
Make 8 evenly sized balls of ground beef. Heat a cast-iron pan on medium-high until very hot. Put a small handful of onions in pan and place a ground beef ball on top, then sprinkle with salt. Do the same for a second patty. Cook about 90 seconds, then smash burgers with spatula to flatten. Cook additional 30 seconds. Coat flattened burgers with mustard. Flip. Put more mustard on other side of each patty, then cook 90 more seconds. Place cheese on patties. Put more mustard on the bun before stacking with two patties and pickle slices. Repeat process 2 at a time for remaining balls of beef. Enjoy!
