BURGER OF THE MONTH: Double Cheeseburgers with Special Ranch


  • 1 cup sour cream

  • ½ cup mixed finely chopped fresh chives, dill and parsley

  • ⅓ cup ketchup

  • ¼ cup buttermilk

  • ¼ cup pickle relish

  • 1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce

  • Salt and pepper

  • 2 ¼ lbs. 80% lean ground beef

  • Olive oil, for drizzling

  • 4 slices yellow American cheese

  • 4 slices yellow sharp cheddar

  • 4 sesame-seed hamburger buns or sesame brioche buns, halved and lightly toasted

  • Sliced dill pickles

  • 1 small white onion, finely chopped

  • Thinly sliced iceberg or little gem lettuce


  • Step 1

    In a medium bowl, mix the sour cream, herbs, ketchup, buttermilk, relish and Worcestershire; season the sauce with salt and pepper. 

  • Step 2

    Heat a cast-iron skillet, griddle or grill over medium-high. In another medium bowl, season the beef and form 8 very thin, large patties. Drizzle the skillet with oil; add 4 patties and cook, turning occasionally, 6 to 7 minutes. Top 2 of the patties with a slice of each of the cheeses during the last minute or so of cooking. Top each with another cooked patty to melt the cheese; transfer to a plate. Repeat with the remaining patties and cheese.

  • Step 3

    Top the bun bottoms with the pickles and onion, the double patties, then the lettuce. Top with some of the sauce and the bun tops.
