Tasty Thursday #94: Big Evil Cheeseburger

Welcome back to Tasty Thursday!!

I'm relatively unimpressed by most burgers nowadays. I think I'm burnt out on them. I'll eat them and "enjoy" them per se, but it's rare that a burger blows me out of the water. I think maybe it's because I grew up in a Norwegian-based town and Norwegian food is "bland" - my mom never really seasoned anything other than maybe a touch of garlic. So I've been very used to just a plain hamburger taste all my life and sometimes it's hard for me to get used to the Worcestershire and garlic and everything else. I just love a plain, unseasoned burger that has been cooked in its own juices.

This burger is one of those burgers. It's got a little onion powder, salt, and pepper, but for the most part the burger speaks for itself! It's easily one of the best burgers I've ever had in my life. I toasted the buns and the sauce was slightly adapted, but the perfect touch!
Big Evil Cheeseburger - a good ole, traditional burger with a great sauce to top it off. #burger #hamburger #groundbeef
What you need:
For the sauce:
  • 1 tbsp. sweet pickle relish
  • 2 tsp. finely minced onion
  • 1 Tbsp. ketchup
  • 1 Tbsp. EVOO
  • 1/4 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tsp. sugar
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • Salt and pepper
For the burgers:
  • 1 lb. ground beef (higher in fat content are usually better for burgers)
  • 1 tsp. salt 
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 4 slices cheese of your choice
  • 4 hamburger buns, toasted
  • Lettuce
  • Sliced white onion
  • Pickles
  • Tomatoes

Mix together all sauce ingredients and chill.

Combine beef, salt, onion powder, and black pepper. Divide into four pieces and form into patties. Cook until done, adding cheese when they are almost done.
Serve burgers topped with lettuce, onion, pickles, and tomatoes on the toasted buns with the sauce.
