Ingredients

  1. Check 1 1/4pounds ground chuck (85 percent lean or less)
  2. Check kosher salt and black pepper
  3. Check canola oil, for the grill
  4. Check 4ounces Cheddar, sliced
  5. Check 8 slices multigrain bread
  6. Check 1/2cup mayonnaise
  7. Check 4 leaves red leaf lettuce
  8. Check 1 avocado, sliced
  9. Check 1/2cup alfalfa or radish sprouts

Directions

  1. Heat grill to medium-high. Form the beef into four ¾-inch-thick patties. Use your fingers to make a shallow well in the top of each patty. (This will prevent overplumping during cooking.) Season with a total of ½ teaspoon each salt and pepper.
  2. Oil the grill and cook the patties with the wells facing up for 4 to 5 minutes. Flip and cook until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center registers 155° F for medium, 4 to 5 minutes more, topping the burgers with the Cheddar during the last 3 minutes of cooking. Dividing evenly, spread the bread with the mayonnaise. Form sandwiches with the bread, lettuce, burgers, avocado, and sprouts.
