How to Make It

  1. Prep time: 15 minutes
    Cooking time: About 20 minutes

    Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Or preheat the oven broiler.

    Combine ground beef and salt; mix well. Scoop out about 1/4 cup at a time and form into small patties.

    Grill burgers over medium heat, 9 or 10 minutes on each side, until cooked through. Or broil them, 4 inches from heat, about 5 minutes per side. (Make sure there's no pink on the inside.) Meanwhile, prepare cheese slices and buns: Cut cheese rounds into 2 or 3 slices per round, or cut sliced cheese into 2-inch pieces. Bake biscuits in a greased cake pan for 8 minutes, or until golden brown. Slice biscuits in half.

    Assemble burgers with cheese slices and your favorite toppings.

    How kids can help: Grease pan; place biscuit dough in pan; garnish burgers with cheese.
