The TRICK for Ooey Gooey Cheese & a Toasted Bun
Build each burger (without toppings) on a bun and wrap each burger in aluminum foil. (Just enough to wrap the burger completely.
Place back in oven for 2-3 minutes to allow the cheese to melt in and for the bun to get warm and toasty!
Serve and top with any toppings desired!
Why the Extra "Toasting" Step? Placing the burgers in aluminum foil and baking for a few minutes, allows the cheese to melt in and the bun to toast! This creates almost a steamy, soft... yet toasty bun that is to die for!Making burgers for a large crowd? Make them in advance and wrap in aluminum foil like this and keep on warm until ready to serve!Salt and Pepper: My favorite salt to use is fine grain Himalayan and my favorite pepper to use is Peppercorn Medley!
