Instructions

  1. Put the ground beef, onion, salt, and black pepper into a shallow mixing bowl.
  2. Using your hands, gently mix. Divide into 6 equal portions, and then form into patties.
  3. Place the Grill/Griddle Plate onto the Baking Pan with the Grill side facing up. Place into the oven in the lower rack position. Set to Grill at 450°F and preheat for at least 10 minutes.
  4. Once preheated, carefully place the burgers evenly on the grill plate. Cook for 3 minutes on the first side, flip and then cook for an additional 3 minutes. For cheeseburgers, add sliced cheese once the burgers are flipped.
  5. Allow to rest for about 5 minutes before serving. To serve, place in slider buns, and top with the lettuce and tomato, and any additional desired toppings.
