Divide beef into 10 equal portions. Place between sheets of wax paper and flatten to form patties ½ inch thick and 4 inches across.
Spread 5 patties with ketchup (or mustard or bbq sauce), leaving ⅛ inch around the edges for sealing. Season with salt and pepper and top patty with onion slice and slice of cheese. Top with other beef patties and seal edges well. (Important as this prevents leaking) Spread both sides of patties lightly with soft butter or margarine or grease the grill. Season top of hamburger with salt and pepper, place on grill over embers and broil about 10 minutes, turn and broil about 10 minutes linger, or until cooked the way you prefer. (can broil in broiler) Slip burgers into slit and toasted buns.
