Preheat the oven to 375
In a bowl, combine the hamburger, onions, and spices. Mix well - I find that using clean hands works the best.
Divide the hamburger into four equal balls.
Using your hands, form the balls into burgers, using your fingers to slightly depress the center of the patty so that when it roasts and cooks, it does evenly, and does not dome in the center.
Place the burgers on a parchment lined baking sheet
Roast in the oven for approximately 13 – 15 minutes or until the juices run clear. The internal temperature should be 160F.
When the cooking is complete, turn the oven off and place the cheese over the patties. Close the oven door and let the residual heat melt the cheese over the patties while you get the lettuce and condiments prepared.
Using wide leaf lettuce, place a leaf on plate. Lay another leave beside it to make the leave surface wider. Place the patty in the center, and apply the condiments. Begin to wrap the patty in the lettuce as tight as you can. You may need to fold extra parts of the leaves like a package.
Depressing the center of each patty before cooking allows it to cook without making a dome in the center.Cheese options:
