  • 2 D’Italiano with Gusto!™ Original Hamburger Buns
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 4 slices american cheese
  • 1 cup iceberg lettuce, shredded
  • 1/2 cup dill pickle chips

For the sauce

  • 2 tbsp. mayonnaise

  • 2 tbsp. dill pickles, minced
  • 1 ½ tbsp. yellow onion, minced
  • 1/8 tsp. paprika
  • 1/8 tsp. garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste

How to make

  • 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.
  • Serve and enjoy!
