The Better Mac
The Better Mac Burger
- 1/2 Lb. of 80/20 ground beef
- 2 Slices American Cheese
- 3 Tablespoons of Minced Onion
- 2 Tablespoons of Dill Pickle Relish
- 2 Tablespoons of Thousand Island Dressing
- Shredded Iceberg Lettuce, to Taste
- Two Burger Bun Heels and 1 Sesame Bun Brown
- Salt, Pepper, and Granulated Garlic to Taste
- Recommended: Blackstone Press & Sear Burger Tool, Wax Paper, Olive Oil
Blackstone Griddle on high heat. Cover griddle top with light coating of olive oil.
Weigh and roll two Â¼ lb ground beef meatballs.
Place meat balls on hot griddle top, cover each with wax paper, and use Press & Sear Burger Tool to smash each meatball. Hold pressure on Press & Sear Burger Tool for a few seconds to assure proper sear on patty.
Season patties to taste. We prefer a mix of salt, pepper, and granulated garlic.
Flip patties when bottoms are caramelized. This will take 4-5 minutes (should have black and brown accents).
Place a slice of American cheese on top of each patty.
Apply oil to an empty part of the griddle top. Drop minced onions into oil. Use spatula to mix onions as they caramelize.
Meanwhile, butter the insides of two burger heels and 1 burger crown. Place buns, butter side down, onto the hot griddle top.
Make the special sauce: Mix Dill pickle relish with Thousand Island Dressing.
Remove buns with they are toasted to perfection (golden brown).
Once cheese is completely melted, you can start to plate up your Better Mac.
Start with one heel. Cover it in the special sauce. Cover the sauce with shredded iceburg lettuce to taste. Place patty with cheese on top. Place the second bun heel on top of the bottom patty. Cover 2nd bun heel with Special Sauce. Place 2nd patty w/cheese on top of 2nd bun heel. Top with sautÃ¨ed onions to taste. Add crown.
Enjoy your Better MAC!
