1tablespoonpickle juicefrom the bread and butter pickles above
8four-ounce beef pattiespreferably 85% lean
83/4-ounce slices of your favorite cheese (American, cheddar, swiss, etc)
Butter lettucefor garnish, optional
Sliced tomatofor garnish, optional
Sliced red onionfor garnish, optional
Bread and butter picklesfor garnish, optional
Heat the grill to 600 degrees F.
In the meantime, make the burger sauce by stirring all of the sauce ingredients together until combined. Set aside.
If desired, toast the buns directly on the grill, for about 1 minute, until toasted. Remove to a tray.
Season both sides of the beef patties with salt and pepper, then cook on the grill for about 2-3 minutes on each side, until browned on the edges and cooked through to your desired doneness.
Place one slice of cheese on each patty just before removing from the grill, to melt slightly. Remove the beef from the grill, then allow to rest for a couple minutes.
To assemble the burgers, place a leaf of lettuce on the bottom bun to prevent the bun from getting soggy. Then place two cheese beef patties on top, then the tomato, red onion, and pickles. Spread the inside of the top bun with a tablespoon or more of burger sauce, then place on top of the burgers. Enjoy!
