Bob’s Big Boy
1 pound ground chuck
8 jumbo sesame seed buns
1 cup shredded lettuce
4 slices real American cheese
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 Tablespoons sweet relish
2 Tablespoons ketchup
2 teaspoons water
In a small container, combine the mayo, relish, ketchup, and water.
Set aside. This is your Big Boy sauce.
Carefully form the beef into eight equal sized, round patties about
4" in diameter. Do this on waxed paper. Discard the top half of four
of the eight buns. Toast the the buns until golden. The extra bottom,
or “heal” is your middle bun, or “club”.
After the buns are toasted, grill your freshly formed beef patties.
Salt liberally. Cook for about two minutes, then turn and add another
dash of salt. Cook for about another two minutes.
While the beef is cooking, dress your Big Boy buns as follows:
Put half the sauce on the toasted bottom, and the other half on the
middle, adding 1/8 cup of lettuce to each. The slice of cheese goes
on top of the lettuce on the true bottom bun.
When the beef is done, drain excess fat by tilting the patty to the
side while holding it to the spatula with your free hand. Put one
patty on each dressed bun, stack the center (non−cheese) patty/bun
on top of the bottom (cheesed) patty/bun. Finish by placing the
toasted crowns on top.
