  • Season both sides generously with salt and pepper.
  • Grill hamburger patties 3 to 4 minutes on each side, depending on how well you like your meat cooked.

Gr8 Tip for Serving a Crowd:
  • When serving a crowd, assemble the cooked hamburgers and buns (and cheese, if desired) and wrap each one individually in aluminum foil. This will help keep the hamburgers warm and the buns from drying out before serving.Grilled Hamburgers
  • The USDA suggests cooking ground beef to 160ºF; this is well-done. I prefer my burgers medium so I cook mine to 140ºF, which is why a better quality of meat is necessary.
