INGREDIENTS
  • For the Burgers:
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef chuck
  • Kosher salt and coarse black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 rounded tablespoons prepared horseradish
  • 1 tablespoon Tabasco sauce
  • A small handful celery tops and leaves, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup Heinz organic ketchup or Heinz chili sauce
  • 1/2 cup Ritz cracker crumbs or fine breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg yolk, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon EVOO Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 4 slices sharp cheddar cheese
  • 4 brioche burger rolls, split
  • For the Sauce:
  • 3/4 cup Heinz ketchup
  • 1 rounded tablespoon horseradish
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons Tabasco sauce
  • 2 tablespoons minced celery tops
  • Coarse black pepper, to taste
PREPARATION

Place beef in mixing bowl, season liberally with kosher salt and lots of black pepper. Add Worcestershire, horseradish, Tabasco, celery tops and leaves, ketchup or chili sauce, cracker crumbs and egg yolk. Combine and form 4 large patties that are thinner at the center than the edges for even cooking.

Combine sauce ingredients in small bowl.

Heat cast-iron skillet or griddle pan over medium-high heat. Add oil and wipe around pan -- it will smoke up a bit. Add burgers and cook 8-10 minutes, turning once. Top with cheese in last minute or 2 of your cooking time. Serve on brioche rolls topped with special sauce.
