John T. Edge Burger II


For John T. Seasoning
4 tablespoon kosher salt
2 tablespoons ground black pepper
2 tablespoons garlic powder
For Burger
1 1/4 pound ground beef, formed into 4 balls
1 medium yellow onion, shaved as thin as possible
12 slices American Cheese
4 sesame seed burger buns, halved
2 cups iceberg lettuce, thinly sliced
1 cup dill pickle juice
1/4 cup yellow mustard


For John T. Seasoning

In a small bowl, combine all ingredients and mix well. Set aside.

For Burger

On a hot grill or hot grill pan, place the burger balls and use a spatula to smash the burger balls until they form thick patties. Season with 1/4 of the John T. Seasoning. Grill for 2-3 minutes.

Top the patties with onions and smash again to work the onions into the meat. Season the onions with 1/4 of the John T. Seasoning and flip the burgers.

Smash the burgers a third time to form a thin patty on top of the onions. Add 1/4 of the seasoning and top each burger with 3 slices of cheese. Cover and cook 3-4 minutes. The cheese should melt onto the grill pan and become crispy.

Pull the burgers from the grill pan and allow to rest.

While the burgers rest, toast each half of the buns face side down on a grill pan, about 1-2 minutes or until golden.

In a small bowl, combine the lettuce, pickle juice, TABASCO® Sauce, and remaining John T. Seasoning and mix well.

Serving Suggestion

Once the buns are toasted, add yellow mustard to each half. Assemble by placing the dressed lettuce on top of each burger and placing burgers on buns. Enjoy.
