1 1/4 pounds ground sirloin

2 tablespoons dill pickle relish

2 tablespoons steak sauce

1 tablespoon grill seasoning

1 teaspoon sweet paprika

10 soft dinner rolls, split

2 cups chopped iceberg lettuce

1 small yellow skinned onion, finely chopped

Special Sauce:

1/2 cup ranch dressing

1/2 cup ketchup

1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper

Additional Toppings, optional:

Sliced Cheeses: Cheddar, pepper jack, Swiss


Sliced tomatoes

Yellow Mustard


Blue Cheese Dressing

Sweet Red Pepper Relish


  1. Preheat grill pan or outdoor grill to high. Mix meat and next 4 ingredients. Divide meat into half and score each half into 5 pieces. Roll the meat into balls then squish it into small, thin patties, 3 inches across. You will yield 10 patties. To make a double batch or more, meat can be made into patties ahead and placed on cookie sheets to store 24 hours. These patties can also be baked on cookie sheets in preheated 400 degree F oven for 10 to 12 minutes. But, on a hot indoor or outdoor grill, these small burgers will take just 2 or 3 minutes on each side for medium doneness. Serve on dinner rolls with chopped lettuce, chopped onion and Special Sauce.
  2. To make sauce, combine ranch dressing with ketchup and black pepper.
