Serving Size: Serves 4 Ingredients
  • 1/3 Cup Mayonnaise
  • 2 T Ketchup
  • 1 Tablespoon Yellow Mustard
  • 1 Cup Pickles (diced small)
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • Frank's Red Hot (as much as you want, to taste)
  • 1 1/2 lbs Ground Beef (80/20)
  • 1 1/2 tsps Salt
  • 1 1/2 tsps Black Pepper
  • 8 tsps Dijon Mustard
  • 8 Slices Bacon (cooked)
  • 4 Slices Pepper Jack Cheese
  • 4 Lettuce Leaves
  • 4 Slices Tomato
  • 4 Slices Red Onion
  • 4 Brioche Buns
  • For the Special Sauce: In a bowl combine your Mayonnaise, Ketchup, Yellow Mustard, Pickles, Garlic Powder and Hot Sauce. Stir to combine and set aside.
  • To Assemble The Burger: Spread the special sauce on the bottom of the bun, top with a lettuce leaf and slice of tomato. Add the cooked patty on top, and top that with a slice of Pepper Jack, and two slices of cooked bacon, some red onion, and more special sauce. Close the burger with the top of the bun and enjoy!
  • For the burgers: Gently combine the meat with the salt and pepper, and form into 4 pattys. Smear 2 teaspoons of Dijon on each patty (on only 1 side). Heat a griddle or cast iron skillet on medium high heat, and when very hot, cook the burgers mustard side up for 3 minutes. Flip, and cook another 3 minutes for medium rare and 4 minutes for medium.
