Step 1

Preheat grill to medium-hot heat.**

In a medium bowl, gently combine beef, garlic, salt and pepper; form into four 1/2-inch-thick patties. Place on grill and cook 4 to 5 minutes on one side; flip and continue cooking until desired degree of doneness, about 3 to 4 minutes more. Sprinkle each burger with 1 tablespoon of cheese; cook until cheese melts, about 1 minute.

Meanwhile, brush both sides of onion with oil. Grill until bottom is lightly browned, about 3 to 4 minutes. Flip onion and sprinkle with oregano; grill for 2 to 3 minutes more.

Lightly toast open-faced buns on grill. Place burgers on buns and top each with 1 slice onion (separated into rings) and 2 tomato slices. Yields 1 cheeseburger per serving.
