Special Sauce:

1/4 cup mayonnaise

3 tablespoons ketchup 

1 tablespoon yellow mustard 

1 tablespoon dill relish 

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

Double Cheeseburgers:

2 pounds ground beef (80 percent lean)

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 

12 slices American cheese 

6 hamburger buns, split and lightly toasted 

1 large tomato, sliced 

1 1/2 cups shredded iceberg lettuce 

1/2 red onion, thinly sliced into rings 


  1. For the special sauce: Stir together the mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard, relish and Worcestershire in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  2. For the double cheeseburgers: Prepare a grill for cooking over medium-high heat.
  3. Divide the ground beef into 12 equal portions. Roll each portion into a ball, then flatten it into a thin, 4-inch-diameter patty. Lightly sprinkle the patties with salt and pepper. Grill on one side until about halfway cooked, about 3 minutes. Flip the patties, sprinkle the other side with salt and pepper, top each with a slice of cheese and continue to cook until the patties are cooked through and the cheese has begun to melt, 1 to 2 minutes more.
  4. Build each burger on a bun with 2 patties, tomato, lettuce, onion and a generous slathering of special sauce.
