I really like to allow people to personalize their meal.  One simple way to serve burgers is to have a variety of toppings available on a platter, and let your guests make their own.  Try these homemade mayo recipes: Cilantro-chipotle Mayo and Sriracha Mayo

Ingredients

For the burgers

  • 2 pounds 85-15 ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Ultimate BBQ Rub (or your favorite BBQ Seasoning)
  • 8 slider buns

Burger Toppings

  • Shredded lettuce
  • Sliced tomatoes
  • Sliced onions
  • Pickle slices
  • Your favorite cheese slices (Pepper Jack, Swiss, American, Cheddar)
  • Sriracha mayo
  • Cilantro-chipotle mayo
  • Optional items include Pepper bacon slices, sautéed mushrooms, pepper relish, and pimento

Preparation

Step 1

In a mixing bowl, add ground beef, Worcestershire sauce, and BBQ seasoning.

Step 2

Mix by hand until well incorporated and form into balls (you should get 8 from 2 pounds of meat).

Step 3

Press into thin patties, lay on a sheet of wax paper and cool for at least 1 hour before cooking.

Step 4

On a tray, lay out the “fixings” and put mayo’s in bowls.

Step 5

Cook burger patties on a medium high grill for 2-3 minutes, flip and cook for an additional 2 minutes, or until desired temperature is reached.

Step 6

Lay out burgers and allow guests to fix their sliders.
