Garlic Cheeseburger Loaves

Go Bold With Butter

If you’re feeding a crowd or can’t find mini ciabatta loaves, this is easily adaptable to be made on one large load of sourdough sliced into individual portions. The burgers don’t need much in the way of condiments, just some ketchup and great mustard and you’re all set.

Garlic Cheeseburger Loaves
Makes 8 open face burgers


1 pound 85 percent lean ground beef
4 small sourdough rolls or ciabatta, sliced
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons garlic salt
freshly ground black pepper
8 tablespoons butter, divided
8 slices medium Cheddar cheese


Preheat oven to broil and place baking rack in middle of oven. Prepare a baking sheet with foil. Divide ground beef into 8 equal portions. Place rolls face up on baking sheet and form a patty of hamburger on each roll. Score the top of the burger patty, criss-crossing twice. Drizzle Worcestershire sauce on each patty then season each with garlic salt and pepper. Top each patty with a tablespoon pat of butter. Place in the oven and broil for 10 minutes for medium rare. Add a slice of cheese to each burger and cook for 2 minutes more. Remove from oven and serve immediately.

    Made these and they came out very good. I have a bottom broiler and was worried they would burn but I made sure the burger covered the bun and fliiped them right before adding cheese. Quick and easy great for a weeknight dinner!
