We do a lot of camping and outdoor cooking. This all-American, homemade hamburger recipe is on our menu more than any other food. —Diane Hixon, Niceville, Florida


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons chili sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons prepared mustard
  • 4 slices American cheese or cheddar cheese, halved diagonally
  • 2 slices Swiss cheese, halved diagonally
  • 4 hamburger buns, split and toasted
  • Optional: Lettuce leaves, sliced tomato, sliced onion, cooked bacon strips, ketchup and mustard


  1. Combine first 5 ingredients, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Shape into 4 patties. Grill burgers, covered, on an oiled rack over medium direct heat until a thermometer reads 160° and juices run clear, about 6 minutes on each side.
  2. During the last minute of cooking, top each patty with 2 triangles American cheese and 1 triangle Swiss cheese. Serve on buns. As desired, top with lettuce, tomato, onion, bacon, ketchup and mustard.
