A&W-style Papa Burger


  • 1/5 lbs. ground chuck
  • 1 large sesame seed bun
  • 1 Tbsp Kraft mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp Heinz hamburger relish (the red stuff)
  • 1/4 cup chopped iceberg lettuce
  • 2 Vlasic hamburger pickle slices
  • 1 slice American cheese
  • salt and pepper


Mix the mayonnaise with the relish to make the "secret sauce". Set aside for now.

Preparing the Papa Burger: 1. On waxed paper, form the 1/5 pound beef patty. It should be about 1/4 inch thick and 5 inches in diameter. Freeze at least an hour.

Fire up the indoor electric grill, or outdoor barbecue. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for pre-heating.

Toast the buns by laying them face down on the grill for 30-60 seconds. (About :30 for outdoor barbecue, :60 for indoor.)

Cook the frozen beef patty about 2 minutes per side, (outdoor barbecue) or 3 minutes per side (indoor barbecue grill). Salt and pepper liberally on both sides.

Makes 1
