Spicy Big S'Mac with Swiss


Horseradish Special Sauce:

  • ⅓ cup sour sour cream or Greek yogurt

  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

  • Salt and pepper

  • 1 teaspoon pimentón (smoked sweet paprika)

  • ⅓ cup ketchup

  • 2 tablespoons prepared horseradish

  • 3 tablespoons relish

  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped

  • 1 clove garlic, grated or pasted

Big S’Mac Burgers:

  • 1 ½ to 2 pounds ground beef, 80/20 blend, for 6-8 ounce patties

  • Salt and pepper

  • About 1 tablespoon vegetable or other neutral oil

  • 8 deli-slices Swiss cheese

  • 4 sesame seed buns

  • 2 half sour or garlic pickles, from the deli, thin sliced into chips

  • Finely chopped raw white onion

  • Chopped iceberg lettuce


Makes 4 burgers

For the special sauce: In a medium glass bowl, stir together ingredients.

For the burger: Place beef in a mixing bowl and score meat into 4 even portions. Form wide patties, not too thick, pressing to make them thinner at center than the edges for even cooking. Season both sides with salt and pepper.

Preheat a large cast iron skillet, griddle pan or outdoor grill to medium high heat.

Drizzle oil into pan and add patties. If your patties are very thin, cook 4-6 minutes, turning occasionally. If thicker, cook 7-8 minutes, turning occasionally. Melt cheese over the patties in the last minute or so, covering with a lid or piece of foil.

Assemble burgers on buns: bun bottom, pickles, onion, cheeseburger, chopped iceberg lettuce, special sauce, bun top.
