What he wants to be when he grows up: a cook or someone who works on cars

According to his mother, Jackson has been cooking for two years. He likes these hamburgers because he uses his surprise ingredient.

"He said he wanted to use something other than onion, so he tried dill," Marian said.

The Jackburger

1 1/2 pounds ground chuck
3 sprigs fresh dill weed
Freshly ground pepper
6 slices Muenster cheese

Finely chop the dill. Add it to the meat along with salt and pepper to taste.

Mix well with clean hands.

Shape the meat into six equal patties.

Fry the patties in a nonstick pan over medium heat, turning the patties over one time. Patties should be well-browned on each side.

Place a slice of cheese on each patty and remove from skillet when cheese is slightly melted.

Serve on your favorite buns with your favorite condiments.

Makes six patties.
