Want a juicy burger hot off the grill? Try this baby! This is more burger than one person should eat. We actually split one because they were just so filling. Plus we wanted room for our french fries! Every bite was juicy and just tasted like an "All American" Burger. I find it funny saying "American" Burger when I know that burgers originated in Mongolia. Mongolia? Did you know that? The mongols led by Genghis Khan did not have much time to eat so they would put tough scraps mutton or lamb under their saddles. As they rode to and into battle it would tenderize them. They would eat the raw meat on bread for quick meals. I learned that a few years ago while playing food trivia. Anyway this burger is far removed from its origin but it still would fill and power a battle-hungered soldier!

Hamburgers Patties
1 1/3 lb ground beef
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp coriander
2 pinches kosher salt
fresh crack pepper to taste
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 egg
1/4 cup Italian bread crumbs
1/4 cup beef broth

4 slices American cheese
1 ripe vine tomato (sliced)
2 large hamburger sweet buns
onion slices sauteed
dill pickle slices

1 tbsp Thousand Island dressing
1 tbsp mayonnaise

Preheat grill to medium.

In a medium mixing bowl combine all patty ingredients and mix well by hand. Form 4 evenly sized patties, squish them flat with a spatula (makes for better stacking) and immediately place them on the grill. Lay patties on grill and cook for 4-5 minutes then flip and cook an additional 3-4 minutes or until desired doneness. Turn heat off and lay cheese slices over each patty. Let begin to melt and then remove burgers from grill.

Toast the buns over flame for the last 2-3 minutes.

While burgers are cooking mix together Thousand Island dressing and mayonnaise in a small bowl.

Combine buns, patties and fixings together in your desired amounts for a great summer time grilled double cheese burger that will be dripping with flavor!
