What to put on a classic homemade burger: Cheeseburger
Here are the ingredients you need for 2 cheeseburgers:
- 200 grams of minced meat
- 2 buns
- 2 pieces of cheese
- 6 onion rings
- Lettuce and (or) tomatoes
- 4 tablespoons sauce
We advise you to prepare the filling in advance. For the rest, the important thing is to slice and toast the bread so that they are still warm when eaten. While the meat is cooking, add a cheese or two to the grilled side of the steak when flipped. That way, the cheese will melt while the meat cooks. Finally, place the sauce on the bottom half of the toasted bread and the roast on top. Add toppings such as lettuce or tomato.
