  • 2 lbs ground chuck
  • 3-4 tbsp olive oil
  • salt pepper, season salt, granulated garlic to taste
  • Havarti cheese slices
  • 1/8 cup fried onions per burger
  • 3-4 pepperoncini yellow peppers(per burger)
  • Your choice of burger buns


  1. Preheat your grill
  2. Place beef in large bowl & add in your salt, pepper, season salt, granulated garlic to taste
  3. Work seasoning into your beef so it's all combined
  4. Form into patty shape
  5. Place raw patties on baking sheet & brush with olive oil
  6. Once grill is ready - place patties on the grill to sear - flipping once to sear both sides
  7. Once seared, lower temperature & allow to cook for about 15-20 minutes flipping only one more time. Don't press down on them - or you will press all the juices out. You want to just let them cook without being disturbed, slow & steady.
  8. When you are getting close to your time insert a meat thermometer - if it reaches above 160 degrees (if not continue cooking a little longer) - add your cheese & allow to melt slightly before removing patties from the grill.

It's time to assemble your burger

  1. Add your burger patty to your bun
  2. Top with fried dried onions & finally your pepperoncini
