Later on that day we headed to Brewery 85 and met some friends for the brewery's 1-year anniversary party. Brewery 85 is one of the many breweries that we have in the upstate, and in my opinion they have the best beer. You can read my full review about them here.
But back to the burgers, if you're interested in making these here's the recipe!
1/2 white onion finely diced
sliced pickles (we used Boars Head)
shredded iceberg lettuce
Sesame Seed Buns
1000 Island Dressing or Special Sauce (recipe below)
Divide your meat into 8 equal sections. Shape into balls and flatten into thin patties. Salt and pepper each side of the patties. Try not to mess too much with the patties while you flatten them it will make them tough. Lay them on parchment paper after shaping so they are easy to remove.
Cook the burgers on the grill or in a large frying pan at medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes each side until they are cooked through. Once patties are cooked, cover patty with a slice of American Cheese. Layer special sauce, lettuce, onions and pickles and first burger patty on bun. Place middle bun on and repeat layer process. Add next patty and top bun.
1/2 cup mayo
2 tablespoons French Dressing
4 teaspoons sweet pickle relish
1 tablespoon finely minced onion
1 teaspoon white vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir well. Place in a covered container and refrigerate overnight or at least a few hours for flavors to combine.
Y'all have a wonderful week!
