This couldn't be any simpler. Whisk together the egg, salt and black pepper in a large bowl. Mix the beef in with your hands and shape into 4 burgers. Grilling time depends on the thickness but for an average size burger it should take 5-7 minutes on each side. Add one cheese slice as soon as you take your burgers off the heat to allow each slice to melt.
This burger is served with bacon, sauteed onions and barbeque sauce. Mmmm...
