Spiked Burgers

In honor of the nice weather earlier this week, we grilled out two nights in a row!  Grilling is my fave!  The first night, we tried a new burger recipe the hubs saw in People magazine.  (Yes...he caught up on all his celeb gossip on the flight back from San Fran...)  The actual burgers were pretty normal.  It was the sauce that made them so phenomenal. 

Spiked Burgers

1/2 cup majo
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1 1/2 tsp roasted garlic
3/4 cup ketchup
5 Tbsp vodka

2 1/2 lbs ground beef, formed into 6 1/2-in thick patties
Salt & pepper
2 Tbsp canola oil
6 potato rolls
6 Tbsp melted butter
6 slices cheddar cheese
Bread-and-butter pickles

1) In a bowl, combine mayo, mustard, and garlic.  Add ketchup and vodka; mix. 
2) Season patties with salt and pepper and coat with oil.  In a very hot skillet or on a grill, sear patties for 4 minutes on each side.  Flip and cook for 2 more minutes.  Remove from heat and keep warm.  Wipe out skillet.
3) Brush potato rolls all over with melted butter.  Toast on both sides, in the skillet or on the grill.  Put 1 cheese slice on top half of each roll.  Grind some black pepper over cheese and toast until cheese melts.
4) Place 6 pickle slices on each bottom roll, top with hamburger, and spoon 2 tablespoons spiked sauce on burger.  Top with other half of roll.

I only used 1 pound of ground beef and made it into 4 burgers.  I cut the sauce mixture in half and it was still WAAAAY too much.

Paired it with some garlic mashed potatoes...my other FAVE!
