I mentioned the other day I was craving fair food so bad because of all this cold weather, and yesterday I was hit with a craving for one of my favorite summertime foods...a big ol' cheeseburger! We ran out of propane right at the end of fall last year and haven't used the grill since, so it's been a while since I've had a juicy hand-pattied burger at home. I decided "What the Hey!" and heated up the frying pan.
While my beefy patties were sizzling away I felt like I wanted to kick these up a notch. My homemade burgers already had a lot of awesomeness going on (see recipe below), but I felt since it had been so long since I'd made one, I'd go all out. YOLO, right?! So I quickly whipped together what I like to call A Burger’s Favorite Sauce!
Just grab a small bowl, dump everything in and mix it up with a spoon. Use it with burgers, fries, potato chips, veggies, pretzels, chicken or even steak! Bacon? Sure! Chicken Nuggets? Yes. Anything you can think of! Popcorn?...ok maybe not anything :) Store whatever you have left in a glass jar in the fridge.
1/4 Cup mayonnaise
1/4 Cup ketchup
1/4 Cup sour cream
1/8 Cup ranch dressing
1 Tbsp spicy brown mustard
1/2 Tbsp Worcestershire (I just did 3 big shakes)
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp dill
Mix everything together and spread over your favorite dish. Store leftovers in the fridge. I'm not sure how long it would last, but I'm guessing at least a week.
1 Pd Ground Chuck
1/4 Cup BBQ sauce
1/4 Cup Breadcrumbs
1/8-1/4 Cup Mozzarella cheese
1/8-1/4 Cup Cheddar cheese1 piece of Bacon, crumbled
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
Dash of Worcestershire sauce
shake of salt and pepper
Mix everything into a large bowl. Patty out 4-8 burgers, depending on how big you like them.
Refrigerate for one hour (or skip this part if you're in a hurry).
Heat a frying pan to medium heat and add some butter to the pan. Place patties on melted butter and cover with a large metal bowl...I use a circular cake pan. Works just the same.
Add about a 1/4 cup of water to the pan. Fry on each side 5-6 minutes, or less if you like your burger more on the medium to medium rare side, while keeping covered with the bowl.
Remove the bowl and add your juicy burger to a toasted bun, add a big spoonful of A Burger's Favorite Sauce and Enjoy!
Need some glass jars?
Know of anything else that would taste great with this? Lemme know cause I'm anxious to eat it again! Hope you all had a great weekend!
