‘Tis the season for grilling! What better way to kick off my yearly BBQ marathon than with a good, old-fashioned hamburger? I used a new technique here, inspired by my collaboration with Maille mustard: the patties are smeared with a healthy dose of Dijon mustard before a final sear on the hot grill. The results are mouthwatering and addictive, you have to try it to believe it!
- 1 3/4 lb ground beef
- 4 tablespoons Maille Dijon mustard
- 4 slices of cheddar cheese
- iceberg lettuce
- tomato slices
- 4 hamburger buns
Divide meat into 4 equal portions and shape into patties. Cook burgers on grill or skillet. Right before they are finished, spread yellow mustard on one side of each burger, then sear mustard-side down. Repeat mustard sear on other side, then top each patty with a slice of cheese and remove from heat. Lightly toast buns and assemble burger with hamburger patty, tomato and lettuce. Serve immediately.
