BBQ Burger with Secret Sauce

I have a hard time letting go of grill season.  I do.  So I will probably have a few more recipes to share that make you think summer rather than fall.  Oh well, I'll get to the fall recipes soon enough :)  This recipe in particular is a great way to fulfill your grill craving, even in the middle of the winter!

This burger is full of flavor and turned out super yummy and juicy.  The trick to these is to use an indoor grill pan, they are too fragile to head outside (your burger will probably fall through the grates of the grill.  Enjoy :)

BBQ Burger with Secret Sauce

2 lbs ground beef 85/15
sesame seed buns
1/2 cup of grated Monterrey jack cheese
1/4 cup BBQ sauce
season salt to taste
cracked black pepper
onion powder
Secret Sauce
3/4 cup of mayo
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup relish
2 tablespoons worcestershire
seasoned salt

Combine the ground beef, grated cheese, bbq sauce, and seasonings. Shape patties that are about 1 inch thick.

Then it is very important to push a 1/2 inch indent into the center of the patty–this is what prevents the patty from becoming a dome. These burgers stay extra moist because the bbq sauce and cheese are mixed in with the meat.

Wait for the skillet to get super hot and then apply a very thin layer of butter to the pan. Place the patties on the pan, indent side up.

Reduce heat to medium and allow this side of the patty to cook for about 4-6 minutes, but make sure it doesn’t burn. Then flip the burger over and cook until done.

For the sauce: Combine all ingredients and whisk until well mixed. Taste and adjust ingredients to your liking.

Assemble the burgers and serve with avocado, lettuce or your choice of toppings!
