Calories 658kcal


  • 2 lbs ground Wholesome Meats beef
  • 5 burger buns
  • 10 American Cheese Singles
  • 1/4 cup white onion finely diced
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil or other high heat oil for cooking

Special Sauce

  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup yellow mustard
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt plus more to taste
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper


  • Divide ground Wholesome Meats beef into 10 equal pieces, about 1/5lb per piece. Keep chilled until ready to grill.
  • Heat cast iron griddle to 450° or as hot as you can get it. Meanwhile, make the Special Sauce by whisking together the mayo, mustard, ketchup, salt and pepper until well combined. Set aside.
  • Brush the hot griddle with the cooking oil. Working in batches, place two patties at a time (or more if your griddle is large) on the griddle and use a spatula to firmly press them down until very flat. Sprinkle with a mix of salt and pepper. Cook for 1-2 minutes then flip to the other side. Cook 1-2 minutes more. Place a slice of cheese on each patty and close grill lid or cover and let melt. Continue until all patties are cooked.
  • Toast buns and schmear with Special Sauce. Add two patties to each bun then top with diced onions and top bun. Enjoy immediately!
