Click here to see how to make the Minnesota Jucy Lucy and 3 of our other Classic American Burgers.


All Classic American Burgers come from one starting point; 1/4 lb high quality minced steak with 20% fat, per burger. Mixed with black pepper to form a coherent mass and shaped into balls. Use large soft white buns. Seeds are optional. Toast the buns on the inner surfaces only.

  • 1/4 lb burger mix (high-quality minced steak with 20% fat, black pepper)
  • 1 slice cheese
  • 1/2 onion


  • 1 Heat a cast iron griddle or frying pan until searing hot.
  • 2 Divide the burger ball into 2 smaller balls.
  • 3 Take 4 squares of greaseproof and press out each patty between 2 squares of the paper.
  • 4 Divide a cheese slice into 4 and arrange in the centre of one patty. Place the other patty on top.
  • 5 Press the two together, working from the centre to expel any air.
  • 6 Add a smear of oil to the hot pan and cook the onions until soft. Remove.
  • 7 Add the burger to the pan and season with salt.
  • 8 Cook on the first side until red beading appears on the top. Turn, and cook for the same amount of time you gave the first side.
  • 9 Toast the bun on the inner surfaces only.
  • 10 Build the burger with pickles and fried onions.
  • 11 Take care when eating, the cheese is really hot and possibly pressurised too.
