We don’t have a grill so I’ve tried to cook burgers in a tasty way that does not leave them dried out as it seems to in the fry pan. I learned to cook them on a cast iron skillet in the oven. If you have a gas oven it turns out perfect. We now have an electric oven which still did the trick but did not leave the burgers flame licked. However you make them, this recipe is sure to be a favorite.
Ground beef (about one pound for four burgers)
Smoked Swiss, cheddar, or any yummy cheese
Place cast iron skillet in oven close to broiler and turn broiler on for about 15 minutes to heat the skillet.
Carefully place burger patties onto skillet and return to oven (be very careful as skillet will be extremely hot).
Broil for about 3 minutes and flip for another 3 minutes or so. Timing really depends on oven and your taste for raw or cooked meat. Also, you may wish to lay a piece of aluminum foil over burgers so they don’t spatter your oven.
Add toppings listed above and enjoy an amazing burger!
I love Panera’s Chipotle Chicken Sandwich. It especially hit the spot when I was overcoming morning sickness. I wanted to make this at home and was happy to find it turned out delicious! I believe I made it a day or so after having Amazing Burgers and was able to use a lot of the same toppings from the burger recipe. Try this out, it is so good!
Avocado (if on hand)
Adobo sauce from a can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
Cook thin cut chicken pieces in a fry pan with olive oil. Season meat with paprika and chile powder to taste.
Cook bacon (or use leftover bacon from Amazing Burger recipe)
For Chipotle Sauce:
Combine equal parts:
Mayo and Sour cream
Add Adobo sauce to taste
While fry pan is still hot add more oil and toast bread (one side only) in pan. Lay cheese slices on top so they melt nicely. When toasted on one side and cheese melted on the other add chicken, bacon, onion, tomato, and avocado. Slather chipotle sauce on the other slice of bread to make a most delicious chipotle chicken sandwich!
