Broiled Beef Burgers

Cuisinart original

A good burger doesn’t need much fuss, as long as you have good quality meat. To turn these into cheeseburgers, a minute or so before the burgers are cooked, top with a slice of your favorite cheese and allow to broil for an additional minute, or until cheese is melted and browned.


Makes 4 burgers


1½       pounds ground beef

2          tablespoons olive oil

1½       teaspoons kosher salt

½         teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

½         teaspoon garlic powder

1. Divide the ground beef and form into 4 burgers (6 ounces each) — be sure not to overwork the meat or the burgers will be tough. Coat each with olive oil and then sprinkle both sides with the salt, pepper and garlic powder.

2. Adjust the rack to position 4. Set the burgers on the broiling rack, fitted into the baking pan. Set oven to Broil with Convection for 12 minutes.

3. Serve immediately on toasted buns topped with your favorite condiments.
