Cast-Iron Skillet Cheeseburgers
Top juicy burgers with a tart cornichon relish that goes well with creamy Comté.
Form the beef into 2 equal patties, about 4 inches wide and ½-inch thick, and create a depression in the center of each patty.
Heat a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat until just smoking. Sprinkle the patties generously with salt and pepper. Put the patties in the pan with the depression facing up. Cook until the bottom gets brown and crusty, about 4 minutes.
Flip and place the cheese on top. Continue cooking to your desired doneness, 3 to 4 minutes more for medium-rare.
