Ingredients
  Ground beef 2 Pound
  Mesquite seasoning 2 Tablespoon
  Cheese slices 8 Ounce
  Onion 1 Large, thinly sliced
  Tomatoes 2 , thinly sliced
  Salt To Taste
  Pepper To Taste
Directions

Mix the ground beef with the mesquite seasoning and shape into eight patties—thinner, but larger, than usual. On top of four of the patties place a layer of cheese, sliced onion, and sliced tomato. Cover with the remaining patties and seal the edges. Season to taste with the salt and pepper.

Grill over low heat until done (probably a little longer than usual or about 20 to 25 minutes), turning regularly.

Makes 4 servings.

Story
This recipe was in my first book but it's one I get asked about fairly often. I was asked about it again recently on a radio show so I thought I'd post it to my page. It's a simple recipe but one that always has people saying "wow" when they take the first bite.
