Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium bowl, mix the sour cream, herbs, ketchup, buttermilk, relish and Worcestershire; season the sauce with salt and pepper. 

  • Heat a cast-iron skillet, griddle or grill over medium-high. In another medium bowl, season the beef and form 8 very thin, large patties. Drizzle the skillet with oil; add 4 patties and cook, turning occasionally, 6 to 7 minutes. Top 2 of the patties with a slice of each of the cheeses during the last minute or so of cooking. Top each with another cooked patty to melt the cheese; transfer to a plate. Repeat with the remaining patties and cheese.

  • Top the bun bottoms with the pickles and onion, the double patties, then the lettuce. Top with some of the sauce and the bun tops.
