Diner-Style Cheeseburger Sliders

Makes 6 cheeseburgers


  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, sliced thin
  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 3 slices processed pasteurized American cheese
  • 6 small white hamburger buns
  • 6 slices pickle
  • Ketchup, to taste
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


Diner Style Cheeseburger Sliders

Divide ground beef into six balls (you are shooting for around 1.5 ounces per meatball; precision is not important here), and cut each slice of cheese in half.

In a large skillet over low heat, combine oil and onion. Cook slowly, stirring occasionally, until onions sweeten and caramelize. This should take about 20 minutes.

When onions are ready, add meatballs to pan, on top of onions, and press with a spatula to flatten each into a hamburger patty. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and cook approximately 1-2 minutes.

Using a spatula, flip burger patties (with onions underneath) so that the onions are on top. Add a half-slice of cheese to each hamburger patty, followed by the top half of the bun, followed by the bottom half of the bun.

Cover pan with a kitchen towel, being careful not to let towel catch fire. Let cook 2-3 minutes, or until cheese is melted and buns are steamed through.

To serve, remove kitchen towel. Arrange bottom sections of bun on a platter, and add ketchup and pickle slices to each. Using a spatula, remove each hamburger/onion/cheese/bun stack from pan, and place on each bottom bun. Serve immediately.
