The secret to the "perfect" burger isn't in the seasoning; it's in the beef! At Whole Foods Market, our hamburger meat is ground fresh, butcher style in each store. We select only muscle meat and follow strict handling guidelines to ensure its quality. The best beef makes the best burgers!

Preheat the grill. Divide and gently shape the meat into 8 small patties. Season liberally with salt and pepper. Grill meat to desired doneness, about 4 minutes per side over a medium hot fire.

If you're a cheeseburger fan, add the cheese as soon as you flip to the second side. Meanwhile, brush buns with olive oil and grill just until lightly toasted. Dress burgers with lettuce, tomatoes and onions and serve.
