I'd say I'm a cheeseburger connoisseur. I love them. Love love love cheeseburgers. But I despise cooking them. I can never get the packing right or cook it properly. Plus I don't like handling raw meat. So when I heard about this crockpot cheeseburger recipe, I knew this was exactly the kind of cheeseburger I will not only love but I can cook.
So I made them. Super easy. So incredibly delicious and perfectly season. Kind of like a sloppy joe but completely cheeseburger-y. You know you want to make some. Here's the recipe.
Crockpot Cheeseburgers by How Sweet It Is:
Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 3-4 hours Total Time: 4 hours
3 pounds lean ground beef
1 tablespoons olive oil
1 sweet onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons ketchup
3 tablespoons mustard
6 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, cut into cubes + more for topping buns
Lettuce, tomato and any other burger toppings you like.
Heat a large skillet over medium high heat and add olive oil. Add onions, cooking for 2-3 minutes until soft, then add garlic. Add in beef, salt and pepper and stir, just cooking until browned, about 4-5 minutes.
Add beef to a slow cooker along with milk, ketchup and mustard, stirring well. Add in cubed cheddar, mixing to coat. Cover and cook for 3-4 hours on low, stirring once every 30 minutes or so, especially on the edges.
Serve on buttered + toasted buns with additional cheese and toppings.
These are seriously delicious! Enjoy!
