Loaded Burgers with Special Sauce

  • Preparation: 15 minutes
  • Cook: 30 minutes
  • Rest: 5 minutes
  • Total: 50 minutes
  • Yield: 8 burgers

You will need:

  1. 2 tablespoons olive oil
  2. 1 medium onion, diced
  3. ½ cup mayonnaise
  4. ½ cup sweet pickle relish
  5. ½ cup ketchup
  6. ½ cup pareve ranch dressing
  7. 3 pounds ground beef
  8. Kosher salt
  9. Freshly ground black pepper
  10. 2 to 3 tablespoons canola oil
  11. 8 sesame buns, split and toasted
  12. 8 Boston lettuce leaves
  13. 8 heirloom tomato slices
  14. 2 large dill pickles, thinly sliced
  15. 8 large frozen onion rings, prepared according to package directions

1. Heat the olive oil in a medium sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and sauté until caramelized and translucent, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool slightly.

2. While the onion is cooking, make the special sauce: In a large bowl, combine the mayonnaise, pickle relish, ketchup, and dressing. Stir to mix well.

3. Preheat the grill to high.

4. Place the onions, ground beef, and ½ cup special sauce in a large bowl. Mix lightly with your fingertips to combine. Divide the mixture into 8 equal portions and form them into patties. Season both sides lightly with salt and pepper and brush them with oil. Cook the burgers for 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium rare, or to desired doneness. Remove the burgers from the grill and let rest for 5 minutes. (To cook on the stovetop, heat a grill pan over high heat, brush the burgers with oil, and cook as directed, or heat the oil until shimmering in a sauté pan or griddle over high heat and cook as instructed.)

5. To assemble, place each burger on the bottom half of a bun. Top with 1 lettuce leaf, 1 to 2 tablespoons special sauce, 1 tomato slice, pickle slices, 1 onion ring, and the top of the bun. Serve immediately.

6. Store any remaining special sauce in a resealable container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
