Air Grill Classic Cheeseburgers
PREP: 10 MINUTES
PREHEAT: APPROX. 8 MINUTES
COOK: 8 MINUTES
MAKES: 4 SERVING
- 700g uncooked minced beef
- Salt, as desired
- Ground black pepper, as desired
- 4 slices cheese
- 4 burger buns
- Red onion
Insert grill plate in unit and close lid. Select GRILL, set temperature to HIGH, and set time to 8 minutes for medium-cooked burgers. Select START/STOP to begin preheating.
While unit is preheating, divide the ground beef into 4 portions and hand-form each into a loosely formed 10cm patty.
With your thumb, make a 2.5cm indent in the centre of each patty (this will help the burgers keep their shapes uniform during cooking). Season patties with salt and pepper, as desired.
When the unit beeps to signify it has preheated, place patties on the grill plate, gently pressing them down to maximise grill marks. Close lid and cook for 6 minutes.
After 6 minutes, place a slice of cheese on each patty. Close lid and continue cooking for 1 minute.
After 1 minute, remove cheeseburgers from grill plate. Place the buns on the grill plate. Close lid and cook for the remaining 1 minute.
When cooking is complete, serve cheeseburgers on the toasted buns.
TIP: For extra flavour, grill vegetables like onions, peppers, or mushrooms as a burger topping.
