Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time10 mins
Servings: 2


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 brioche hamburger buns
  • butter
  • 4 slices cheddar cheese
  • 4 slices bacon cooked until crispy
  • 4 slices red onion
  • 4-8 dill pickle slices
  • Ketchup
  • Mustard


  • Spread a generous amount of butter onto the top and bottom half of each hamburger bun. Form the ground beef into 4 patties that around about 1/3 of an inch thick. Season on both sides with salt and pepper.
  • Heat a griddle over medium-high heat. Add the buns butter-side down and cook until lightly browned on the bottom. Remove from the griddle.
  • Add the beef patties to the griddle and cook turning at least once for about 3-4 minutes per side or until fully cooked (the internal temperature has reached 160 degrees F.). During the last few minutes of cooking top each patty with a slice of cheddar cheese. Cook until the cheese has melted.
  • Add ketchup and mustard to the top of the bottom half of each bun, top each with 2-4 dill pickle slices, 2 slices of red onion, one patty, 2 slices of bacon, one additional patty, and the top half of the bun.
