I can’t stress how much of a difference it makes if you make your burger patties from scratch. I definitely recommend taking the time to make them yourself!

Ingredients

  • Chuck Beef
  • Bacon
  • Lettuce
  • Tomatoes
  • Burger Bun
  • Mayo
  • Tomato Sauce
  • Relish Pickles and the juice

Step 1: We Are Going to Start by Making a Tasty Mayonnaise Based Sauce.

In a small bowl add three table spoons of whole egg mayonnaise.

1 Tbsp rich ketchup.
1 Tbsp relish

1 Tbsp pickle juice.

Mix together and Keep in the fridge until the burgers are ready.

Step 2: Setup Either a Mincer or Food Processor With the Cutting Blades.

Add diced beef chuck

Diced bacon Season with salt and pepper.

Step 3: Pulse the Food Processor for a Start to Cut the Larger Pieces.

Continue to pulse under the meat it minced, if you’re in the US minced meat is called ground.

I like my burgers to have a fat ratio of 70% meat to 30% fat, this will give you juicy, tender burgers.

Step 4: ​Now the Beef Is Minced, Take a Hand Full and Mould Them Into Patties.

These are thick but just before placing them on the grill I will flatten them out some more

Cook the burgers for 3 to 4 minutes on each side.

I like my burger to have the faintest amount of pink.

Flip the the burgers, the first side now has a nice sear.

Step 7: ​After the Second Side Has Cooked for About a Minute, Place a Slice of America Cheese on Top.

To help the cheese melt, place the lid on the BBQ for the last two minutes.

Take them off the grill.

Step 8: Lay Out a Burger Bun.

Spread the mayonnaise on the top slice.

On top of that add some pickles.

On the bottom half layout some lettuce, then a couple of slices of tomato.

Step 9: ​Finally, Layer Two of the Burger Patties on Top.

I love making burger from raw cuts, in my food processor. Chuck is es'ply a favorite of mine, although round is okay with us. Nice move adding the bacon. I'm a fan already. -ga-
