Swiss Cheeseburger on a Kaiser Roll

Just a juicy burger with Swiss cheese!
2 Kaiser rolls with sesame seeds, halved
1/2 - 3/4 lb ground beef (80/20)
Swiss cheese slices
Red leaf lettuce
Red onion rings
Roma tomato slices
Grey Poupon mustard

Heat grill to medium heat. Shape beef into two patties. Season with a few dashes of Worchester sauce and grill seasoning. Make the patty thinner in the middle and thicker around the edges so when you grill them, they don’t cook into a mound. Cook about 5 minutes per side for medium. Flip burgers once; add cheese and cook until melted. Add split Kaiser rolls to grill to toast.

Spread mayo and mustard on toasted roll halves. Top bottom bun with patty and cheese. Add toppings of choice: lettuce, onion and tomatoes. Serve with chips, fries or pickle wedges.

Helpful tips for making a great burger:

1) Don’t over mix the meat, it will become tough.
2) Pressing down on the burger while grilling, presses out all the juices.
3) For a moist burger, use ground beef that is 80-85% meat and 15-20% fat.
