How to make a



 Burgers are good when you stick to the basic bun with mayo, ketchup, and mustard. But who doesn’t love adding more flavor? Typically ground beef  tastes best but there are plenty of substitutes like turkey,  chicken, and even vegan mixes that you can manipulate to create your flavor-filled cheeseburger

What you will need: 

1 1b of ground beef (or your substitute)

1 medium-size cast-iron skillet

1medium size white onion

1 bell pepper

2 tablespoon of butter

1 jalapeno

1 teaspoon sea salt

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 teaspoon garlic powder or 2  chopped cloves of garlic

For this adventure use the large cast-iron skillet, slice and sauté the onion, and bell pepper on medium heat in 2 tablespoons of butter. Separately, chop up 1 medium jalapeno pepper, add the sea salt,  cayenne pepper, and garlic powder. Mix the seasonings together and then mash those seasonings into your meat.  Divide and shape the meat into 3 or more burger patties and place them in the skillet with the onions and bell peppers. Cook the patties until done, approximately 4 to 6 minutes per side then add a slice (or two) of cheddar cheese on top.

(It is suggested that you let the meat rest for a few minutes to keep those juices inside and enhance the flavor. )

So, put some cheddar on the burger and let it rest. Place cheese on both pieces of the bun and broil in the oven for 2 minutes. Once they have cooked then prepare your bottom bun with mayo, dark greens, and tomatoes.  Put the burger on and then add the sautéed onions and peppers. Lastly, add the other half of the bun.
