Todd’s Famous Burger

2 pounds Angus ground beef (Let sit and get to room temperature for 1 hour)

1 medium red onion, diced

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon cumin

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 pack of fresh bakery egg bread buns

1 tablespoon Heinz 57 Sauce

1 tablespoon Cains mayonnaise

1 red onion, sliced, thinly making onion rings

1 package of shredded lettuce

6 pieces of deli cheddar cheese

1 tablespoon olive oil

Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil grate.

In a large bowl, combine the beef, diced red onion, pepper and salt. Shape into 6 patties.

Combine the cumin and cayenne pepper in a small bowl and lightly coat both sides of all the patties.

Grill patties over medium heat until desired doneness. Just before done, add the cheddar cheese on each patty and close the lid to melt the cheese.

When patties are almost done, slice hamburger buns in half. Lightly baste each bun with olive oil, and grill until slightly brown.

Combining the burger: Combine the mayonnaise and Heinz 57 Sauce, and slightly coat the top and bottom grilled buns with this mixture. On the bottom bun, place the patty, then the shredded lettuce and red onion rings.
