Here's a mouthwatering cheeseburger that's easy and quick. I came up with it one night when I realized I'd run out of hamburger buns. My husband loved the tang and toasty crunch of the sour-dough bread.—Michelle Dommel, Quakertown, Pennsylvania

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise

Shape beef into two oval patties. In a large skillet, cook burgers over medium heat for 4-5 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 160°. Season with salt and pepper; remove and keep warm. In the same skillet, saute onion in 1 tablespoon butter until tender. Remove and keep warm.
Using 2 tablespoons butter, butter one side of each slice of bread. Melt remaining butter in the skillet. Place bread, buttered side up, in the skillet; cook for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. Turn; top two of the bread slices with the cheese. Cook 2 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.
