For the burgers

  • 1 Pound ground beef (80/20) divided into 4 portions
  • 1 Tablespoon unsalted butter divided
  • kosher salt
  • 4 American cheese slices
  • 2 Potato rolls lightly toasted
  • Iceberg lettuce
  • Dill pickle chips

For the sauce

  • 2 Tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 Tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 Tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 2 Tablespoons dill pickles minced
  • 1 ½ Tablespoons yellow onion minced
  • Teaspoon paprika
  • Teaspoon garlic powder
  • Pepper to taste


  • Make the sauce. In a small bowl, mix all of the ingredients together for the sauce and refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Heat a cast iron skillet or griddle over medium high heat until very hot; 3-5 minutes. Brush the skillet with half of the butter and add two portions of the beef. With two spatulas or a grill press, smash the beef down into ½ inch thick patties, season with salt, and cook for 2 minutes. Flip the patties, top them with slices of cheese and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes. Repeat with the remaining butter and beef.
  • Assemble the burgers. Spread the sauce on the top and bottom of each bun. Stack two patties on each bun followed by lettuce and pickle chips.
  • Enjoy right away!
