Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat barbecue or indoor grill to medium heat.
  2. Form the ground beef into a patty with a slightly larger diameter than the sesame seed bun.
  3. Grill the burger on the grill for 3 to 4 minutes per side or until done.
  4. Be sure to generously salt and pepper each side of the patty.
  5. While the patty grills, brown the faces of the bun in a hot skillet over medium heat.
  6. After the buns have browned, spread about 1 1/2 teaspoons of mayonnaise on the face of the top bun, as well as on the bottom bun.
  7. Spread 1 teaspoon of mustard on the face of the top bun, followed by 2 teaspoons of ketchup.
  8. Arrange 3 or 4 bread& butter pickles slices on the bottom bun.
  9. Arrange lettuce on pickles followed by the tomato slices and red onion.
  10. When the beef is cooked, arrange two slices of American cheese on the patty, let it melt a bit, then place the top bun on the cheese and scoop up the whole thing with a spatula and place it on the bottom half of the burger.
