  1. For the secret sauce:
    1/2 cup mayonnaise
    1 tablespoon ketchup
    1 tablespoon yellow mustard
    4 slices pickles
    1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/4 teaspoon paprika
    Pinch cayenne pepper
  1. For the burgers:
    4 burger patties
    2 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
    4 potato burger buns
    4 tablespoons secret sauce (see above)
    4 leaves of green-leaf lettuce
    8 slices ripe plum tomatoes
    1/2 teaspoon vegetable oil
    Black pepper, freshly ground
    4 slices yellow American cheese


  1. Combine mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard, pickles, garlic powder, paprika, and cayenne in a food processor and process until smooth. Transfer to a squeeze bottle. (It makes about 3/4 cup sauce.
  2. Split open buns and spread with a thin coating of butter, then toast in a skillet until brown, about 1 minute. Using a squirt bottle, drizzle about 1 tablespoon shake sauce on the top half of each bun. Place 1 lettuce leaf and 2 slices of tomato on top half of each bun.
  3. Add oil to a large, heavy-bottomed skillet, then heat over medium-high heat until just beginning to smoke. Generously season beef patties on top side with salt and pepper, then transfer, seasoned side down, to the hot skillet. Use a heavy, flat spatula to press down and lightly flatten the beef patties. Season top-facing side with salt and pepper. Cook until a crisp brown crust has formed, about 2 minutes.
  4. Carefully loosen any crusty parts of the burger patties from the skillet, and flip over. Top each patty with 1 slice of American cheese and cook until the cheese has melted, about 1 minute longer. Transfer patties to burger bun bottoms, top with the the top bun (including tomatoes and lettuce), and serve hot.
