These cheeseburgers with everything sauce are as classic as they come. Burgers smothered with melted Cheddar and topped with tomato, lettuce, onion, pickles, and a ketchup, mustard, and mayo sauce. All smooshed together between perfectly toasted hamburger buns.
In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients until smooth.
☞TESTER TIP: The everything sauce moonlights as an excellent dip for fries (whether classic deep-fried fries or easy oven baked fries).
Make the burgers
Divide the ground beef into 4 equal portions and gently roll each portion into a ball. Pat each ball into a hamburger patty about 3/4 inch (18-mm) thick and 4 inches (10 cm) in diameter. Do your best to make the burgers evenly thick.
Sprinkle half the salt over the burgers. Grind a little pepper over the burgers. Flip the burgers and sprinkle with the remaining salt and a little more pepper.
Warm a 12-inch (30-cm) skillet over high heat until it sizzles when you flick a couple drops of water into it, 2 to 3 minutes. Lightly coat the pan with nonstick cooking spray or oil.
Add the burgers to the skillet and cook for 3 minutes.
Use a spatula to flip the burgers. Immediately place a slice of cheese on each burger and cook until the desired doneness, 3 to 4 minutes for medium.
While the burgers cook, split the buns in half and, if desired, lightly toast them.
Use a spatula to move the burgers to the bottom buns. Top with the pickles, onion, and lettuce. Schmear the sauce on the top bun and plop it on top. Devour immediately.
