Ingredients

  • 1 shallot
  • 1 pound meat loaf mix or ground beef
  • 1/2 cup plain breadcrumbs
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 slices provolone or Swiss cheese
  • 1-pound bag frozen cut green beans
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 potato hamburger buns, split
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 4 lettuce leaves

Method

Step 1

Preheat the broiler.

Step 2

Grate the shallot over a large bowl. Add the meat loaf mix, breadcrumbs, half the ketchup, egg, Worcestershire sauce, 1 teaspoon salt and several grinds of pepper. Use your hands to thoroughly combine the mixture, then divide it into 4 equal balls and shape each into a patty a little less than 1/2 inch thick. Arrange on a baking sheet and broil until the tops of the patties begin to firm up and brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip the patties with a metal spatula and continue to broil until cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes more.

Step 3

Brush each patty with some of the remaining ketchup and top each with a slice of cheese. Continue to broil until the cheese melts, about 30 seconds more.

Step 4

While the patties broil, put the green beans, butter, 1 tablespoon water, 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Cover and microwave until hot, 4 to 5 minutes.

Step 5

Open the buns and spread the cut sides with mayonnaise. Place a lettuce leaf and patty in each. Serve each sandwich with a small bowl of green beans.
