1 pound ground beef, 80 percent lean

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

4 slices American cheese

1/4 cup ketchup

1/4 cup sour cream

1 tablespoon mayonnaise

4 hamburger buns

1/4 head iceberg lettuce, shredded

2 dill pickles, sliced


  1. Divide the ground beef. Shape into 4 patties and season with salt and pepper. Place in a skillet that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray over medium-high and cook patties 3 minutes on each side. In the last minute of cooking, top the meat patties with cheese so it will melt.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the ketchup, sour cream and mayonnaise and spread half onto the hamburger buns and reserve the leftover for a dipping sauce for the French Fries. Place the burgers on buns and top with lettuce and pickles.
