- ⅛ cup of Dijon Mustard (Sir Kensington’s brand is preferred because the flavor is wonderful)
- ¼ cup of Mayonnaise (Again, Sir Kensington’s makes the best mayo and it’s natural with ingredients that are actually good for you!)
- 1 ⅓ pounds of 15% fat Ground Beef (If you can, try to find grass-fed, hormone-free beef)
- 1 tablespoon Sunflower Oil
- 1 teaspoon Beef Tallow (AKA Beef Fat; I found mine at Sprouts Market; I know they have it at Whole Foods. You could also just use butter, but the flavor will be a bit lighter.)
- 8 slices of American Cheese
- 4 Brioche Hamburger Buns (I found them at Whole Foods. I know Turano brand makes them as well.)
- ¼ Red Onion, finely chopped
- 1 Dill Pickle, sliced thinly (Try to find some without added dyes—scary!)
- Mix mustard and mayonnaise in a small bowl and set aside.
- Form your beef into balls (something between a golf ball and tennis ball) and then smash them to be very thin.
- Add a generous pinch of salt to each patty.
- Add sunflower oil and beef tallow to a very hot skillet and carefully rotate skillet to spread the grease.
- Add beef patties and make sure not to crowd them at all because you want them to cook quickly with a consistent hot temperature. Each burger will get 2 patties.
- Flip the patties once they’ve formed some crust and add a slice of American cheese to each patty.
- Once the patty is cooked (approximately 1 minute to 1 1/2 minutes in total, depending on your desired level of doneness), turn off the heat and remove your patties to a clean plate.
- Add buns into oil for about 15 seconds to give them some flavor and toast them a bit.
- Remove buns from heat and add some of that dijonnaise sauce you made, using dijon and mayo, to both sides of your buns.
- Add two cheeseburger patties per bun, top with some of that chopped red onion and sliced pickle, and place the top of the bun over it.
