The perfect way to "cheeseburger" --- my Texas Toast Double Cheeseburger joins two well-seasoned beef patties, homemade onion rings, and buttery Texas Toast!
Who doesn't love a good cheeseburger? When I was growing up, burgers from fast food joints were sort of the norm. Not that I'm a bit older, I know there are better options --- like making them myself! And my cheeseburger is a winner any day of the week.
Making the Texas Toast Double Cheeseburger:
It all starts with the Texas Toast. I didn't know much about this "toast" until I migrated to Texas and now I just can't get enough of it; thick-sliced bread that tastes like an entire stick of butter has been melted right over top.
And the garlic variation you can find in your grocery store freezer just takes it to the next level. The taste of butter and garlic kick starts your first bite into greatness.
I used Pepper Jack Cheese to add a little kick to go along with the awesome flavors you get from the well-seasoned all-beef patties.
Seasoning the beef patties is probably the most important part and second, would be cooking them to the perfect temperature. I tend to prepare my burger on the medium-well side leaving just a slither of pink down the center.
Tip: Having thin patties can enhance the overall flavor (hello JUICINESS) of each bite so be sure to not make your patty too thick. Instead, stack as many as you want!
Homemade onion rings are typically served on the side, but I figured why not combine everything I love into one bite. Also, I cut the onions fairly thin as to not overpower the cheeseburger. It results in a very crispy and crunchy onion ring that can be stacked perfectly. They are the cherry on top plus they add texture and additional flavor.
And last but definitely not least, please don't forget about the sauce. After the first bite, it will be the reason your taste buds want more. When you just want a really good burger, give this Texas Toast Double Cheeseburger a try. Enjoy!
