Copycat Steak n' Shake Garlic Cheeseburger
  • 2 lbs. ground beef
  • garlic butter (homemade or prepared)
  • garlic salt
  • 1 Tbsp melted butter
  • 12 slices of american cheese (or any cheese you prefer)
  • 6 hamburger buns
  1. Spread garlic butter on the insides of a hamburger bun.
  2. In a skillet over medium heat, place the buns with the garlic side down and toast them.
  3. Set aside buns when done.
  4. Pat out the hamburger patties into the desired size.
  5. Preheat your grill or a skillet to medium high.
  6. Once preheated, cook your hamburgers until done to your liking.
  7. Add cheese in the last minute while your hamburgers are cooking and let it melt well.
  8. Place your cheeseburgers on the bottom bun. Spread just a little more garlic butter on top of the burger.
  9. Place the top bun and brush on the melted butter.
  10. Lightly sprinkle the top of the bun with garlic salt.
  11. Devour and enjoy!
** Recipe calls for 2 pieces of cheese per burger like Steak n' Shake does. It is every bit as good with just one slice of cheese so that is what we normally do.
