  1. Heat oven to 200°C. Season the beef with salt and pepper and form into 6 hamburger patties. Using your thumb, make a dimple in the middle of each burger.
  2. Splash oil in a cast-iron pan over medium heat. Place patty in in the pan, dimple side down, and cook for 3 minutes; turn, add the cheese and place in the oven for another 5 minutes, until the cheese melts. 
  3. For the slaw, combine the yoghurt, mayonnaise and lemon juice. Keep a third aside. Combine the rest of the slaw ingredients in a large bowl and add the dressing to coat.
  4. With the remaining yoghurt mix, add the tomato sauce to create ‘thousand island’ dressing
  5. To assemble, warm buns in the oven or on the BBQ for a minute, then add dressing to the base. Top with cheesy patties, then slaw.
