instructions Add 1 to 2 tablespoons of olive oil to one pan and add the patties (working in batches so as not to overcrowd the pan). Sear on one side until deep brown, about 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and continue cooking 3 to 4 minutes or until desired doneness. In the last 2 minutes of cooking, add 2 tablespoons of butter, the garlic and thyme. Once the butter is melted, baste the burgers with the oil/butter mixture. Add the cheese, cover with a lid and let cook for 30 seconds, or until melted. Remove patties and set aside.
ingredients 1/3 cup Mayonnaise 1/4 cup Ketchup 1/4 cup Sweet Pickles (finely chopped) 1/2 cup Sauerkraut 1/2 cup Caramelized Onions
instructions In the other pan, add 2 tablespoons of butter and toast the bread on both sides until lightly golden brown. Mix together the mayonnaise, ketchup and pickles. Season to taste. Combine the sauerkraut and caramelized onions.
ingredients 10 slices Rye Bread (1/2-inch thick)
instructions Begin assembling the burgers. Smear each piece of bread with the ketchup/mayo and then put a burger on the bread. Top with the caramelized onions and sauerkraut. Top with the other piece of bread and squish down. Enjoy.
