  1. Place the ground chuck into a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring to crumble, until no longer pink. Drain the grease from the skillet and reduce the heat to medium-low. Add the onion and butter and season with garlic pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, until the onion is tender. Lay the slices of cheese on top of the meat. As the cheese starts to melt, fold the meat from the edges onto the cheese, keeping some of the meat under the cheese. Keep folding the meat until the cheese has completely melted and everything is well blended. Spoon onto hamburger buns to serve.

Yes, this was an easy dinner. However, it lacked in flavor. I even added more garlic. Not sure that we will eat this again. But thank you for the quick meal.

Its not messy at all and its ok i think its alot better if you add pork n beans in with it.

Kids loved it. It tastes good, better than a normal burger. I omitted the onions (kids don't like to see it), added onion salt instead to get the flavor.

Very good. I used some different seasonings in the meat and also cooked some chopped bacon to put on top (like a bacon cheeseburger)...yum.

Really was a good recipe. I had to use more slices of cheese because my kids love alot of cheese on their hamburger. I also tried it with velveeta which turned out even better.

These didn't have much flavor. Def needs some salt & pepper. Have regular burger condiments handy. These were ok but nothing I would make again.
