My Ultimate Cheeseburger

“My friends call me the “cheeseburger queen” because I would eat one every day if I could. I love to experiment with different ways to make my burgers and came up with this one especially for RSC # 16.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat outdoor grill to med-high heat. You can also use a George Foreman grill or cook the burgers as you normally do.
  2. Lightly oil grate, if using.
  3. In a large bowl, beat egg. Mix hamburger, sausage, cornflake crumbs, 2 Tblsp. BBQ sauce, salt, and pepper until just combined. Divide into 4 portions and shape into patties. Set aside.
  4. Mix 1/2 cup mayonnaise, 1/4 cup BBQ sauce, and 1/2 teaspoons dried basil in a small bowl and set aside.
  5. Cook burgers 3-4 minutes on each side (or until done to your liking). Put cheese on burgers and melt, if desired.
  6. Lightly toast buns on grill or under broiler. Spread an even layer of sauce on both sides of buns, top with burger patty, sliced onion, sliced tomato, and 2 leaves of baby arugula. Cover with top bun. Serve with a slice of dill pickle and fries or potato chips, and enjoy!
