Instead of barbecue sauce, you can use Tabasco but it is wise to use it in moderation. Taste, like class, is a subtle thing and can never be loud or gaudy. This cheeseburger is the recipe my children grew up with. It didn’t seem to harm them and I still use it regularly.


  • 1-1/2 lb (450-700 grams) ground beef
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • Prepared barbecue sauce
  • 4 slices process cheese
  • 4 crusty rolls, split
  • Lettuce
  • Tomatoslices
  • 1 slice of bread, crusts trimmed and soaked in milk
  • 1 egg, whisked


In large bowl, combine ground beef, onion, milk-soaked bread (broken into pieces) and whisked egg, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Shape into four 3/4″ (18mm) thick patties.

Place patties on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, uncovered, 13 to 15 minutes or until centers are no longer pink, turning after 7 minutes. About 1 minute before burgers are done, brush with barbecue sauce. Top with cheese.

Line bottom of each roll with lettuce and tomato; top with Dave’s Barbecue Cheeseburger.


The inclusion of pieces of milk-soaked bread will create a larger, moister patty when cooked. If you prefer a dry patty, do not add the bread.
