Easy Cheezy Butter Burgers







  • 2 Tablespoons kosher salt
  • 2 Tablespoons black pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1 cup shredded cheese of your choice
  • 8 Tablespoons Challenge Butter, softened, divided
  • non-stick cooking spray
  • 6 buns of your choice
  • 6 slices of cheese of your choice
  • burger toppings of your choice (lettuce, onion, tomato, etc.)


  • 1

    Preheat the grill on medium heat (300-350F.)

  • 2

    Combine salt, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika in a small bowl and set aside.

  • 3

    In a large bowl, mix ground beef, shredded cheese and 6 tablespoons of Challenge Butter. Do not over mix. Divide meat into six portions, roll into balls and then flatten to form patties. Using your thumb, add a dimple in the center of the patty a little more than halfway through.

  • 4

    Season patties with about ½ teaspoon on each side of patty. Spray both sides of the burgers with non-stick cooking spray. Put burgers on the grill, dimple side up. Cook for five minutes and flip when patties easily release from the grill.

  • 5

    Meanwhile, spread 2 tablespoons of Challenge Butter on bun tops and bottoms.

  • 6

    Cook for an additional five minutes or until burgers reach your desired doneness. (The USDA recommends cooking ground beef to an internal temp of 160 F which is considered medium.)

  • 7

    With one minute remaining, add buttered buns and sliced cheese, and close lid.

  • 8

    Remove patties and buns from the grill, add your favorite toppings and enjoy!
