Barbecue Monterey Jack Burgers with Special Sauce

We love burgers, but going out to get burgers is getting more and more expensive. Eating out in general is getting more expensive. Needless to say, we are eating at home more often, but that doesn't mean I can't make great homemade burgers that resemble burgers from a diner.  Wanting to jazz up my burgers I decided to surf some blogs and see what at I could find. I found these great burgers at six sisters stuff.  I followed the burger recipe exactly as well as the secret sauce recipe except I pan fried my burgers since it is December and snowing outside. They came out nice and juicy and tasted great. The secret sauce was really good, kind for like thousand island dressing or big mac sauce. Next time I will serve the sauce on plain burgers, not BBQ burgers as you could not taste the BBQ sauce because of the special sauce. You could serve the sauce on the side to dip your fries in!

The Best Hamburger Recipe (and secret sauce)
1 lb ground beef (I used 85/15- you want a fattier meat to make a juicier burger!)
sesame seed buns
1/2 cup Monterrey jack cheese, grated
1/4 cup BBQ sauce
seasoned salt to taste
cracked black pepper
onion powder

Secret Sauce:
3/4 cup of mayo
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup relish
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
seasoned salt

  1. Combine the ground beef, grated cheese, BBQ sauce, and seasonings. Shape patties that are about 1 inch thick. With the 1 pound of ground beef I made 5 large patties.
  2. Turn grill up to high and let it get hot.
  3. Reduce heat to medium-high and place the burgers on the grill. Allow this side of the patty to cook for about 4-6 minutes, but make sure it doesn’t burn. Then flip the burger over and cook until done.
  4. For the sauce: Combine all ingredients and whisk until well mixed. Taste and adjust ingredients to your liking.
  5. Assemble the burgers and serve with the special sauce, avocado, lettuce, tomato, cheese, pickles and your other favorite hamburger toppings!

  2. My husband and I were looking for a good burger. We made yours exactly as is except we only had Heinz hot relish for the special sauce. We loved both the burger and the sauce!!!!! My husband kept raving about the sauce and even ate the rest on his grilled cheese wurst. We will definitely save and pass along to others. Thanks for sharing.
