House Home Photo Ricardo American Double Cheeseburgers Hamburger Burger Recipe

Based on an old American favourite, Food Network chef Ricardo Larrivée's cheeseburgers are a fun take on traditional barbecuing. Serve them up at a backyard cook-out party this summer — kids and adults alike will leave satisfied!

Yield: 
4 servings
Ingredients: 

Sauce
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 tbsp store-bought French salad dressing (orange coloured)
1 tbsp sweet relish
1 tbsp finely chopped dill pickle
1 tsp brown sugar
1 tsp ketchup
1 tsp white vinegar
Salt and pepper

Cheeseburgers
4 hamburger buns
1-1/2 lb. lean ground beef
4 slices orange processed cheese
Sliced sandwich pickles
Chopped iceberg lettuce

Instructions: 

Step 1: In a bowl, combine all the sauce ingredients. Season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate.

Step 2: For the cheeseburgers, preheat the barbecue, setting the burners to high.

Step 3: Using a bread knife, slice the top halves of the hamburger buns in half. Set aside.

Step 4: Shape the meat into 8 large but very thin patties. Place the patties between sheets of plastic wrap and flatten by sliding your hand over the top layer.

Step 5: Grill the patties until well-done, about 3 minutes per side. Season with salt and pepper. Place the cheese slices on 4 of the patties for the last minute of cooking. Toast the buns.

Step 6: Spread sauce on the bun bottoms. Lay 1 plain patty on each bun bottom. Garnish with pickle slices. Cover with the bun middles. Spread with sauce and garnish with lettuce. Top with the remaining patties and the bun tops.
