This easy copycat is perfect for a Friday night when you don't really want to go out to get Five Guys.
I have been experimenting with different methods of how to get my burger patties relatively thin. My favorite so far is to place one patty between two pieces of parchment paper and take a rolling pin to it. I think it works pretty well and you can get the patty pretty darn thin. Honestly, this really isn't a crazy variation on a burger, but it still somehow ends up tasting like Five Guys. Don't splurge on hamburger buns though. Any time I make a fast food burger copycat, I always opt for the fluffy "cheaper" buns. Fast food burger copycats just don't seem right on a fancy bun!
What you need:
- 1 lb. ground beef (makes 4 patties)
- 1 Tbsp. butter
- 4 hamburger buns
- 4 slices American cheese
- Toppings of your choice
- Divide ground beef into 4 pieces. Roll each piece between parchment paper until 1/2 inch thick.
- Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat and place buns cut side down in it. Cook until golden and then remove from skillet.
- Place burgers in skillet and season with salt and pepper.
- Once crispy and brown, flip and cook until other side is crispy and brown.
- Place a piece of cheese on top and allow to melt completely.
- Remove patties and serve on buns with toppings of your choice.
