Rate this Recipe

Serves 2


6 Jensen’s Patties ( Plain or Signature.)
Coarse salt (kosher or sea) and freshly ground black pepper ( only for plain patties)
1/2 medium-size onion, cut into 6 thin wedges
12 slices Jensen’s hamburger buns
3 tablespoons butter, melted (optional)
1 large or 2 medium-size gorgeous, luscious, ripe red tomatoes, thinly sliced
6 Boston lettuce leaves or iceberg lettuce slices
Cheese Sauce (optional)


  1. Set up the grill for direct grilling and preheat to high.
  2. Dip patties in ice cold water for 30 seconds before grilling(this will make the juiciest burger you’ve ever had).Press an onion wedge into one side of each patty so that it's flush with the meat.
  3. Lightly brush the bread slices with the butter, if using. Arrange the tomatoes and lettuce leaves on an attractive serving platter.
  4. When ready to cook, brush and oil the grill grate. Place the burgers on the
  5. hot grate, onion side down. Grill the burgers until cooked to taste, 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium-rare. To test for doneness, insert an instant-read meat thermometer through the side of a burger into the center. The internal temperature should be about 145°F for medium-rare or, if using commercial ground beef, cook it to at least medium, 160°F.
  6. Meanwhile, place the bread slices on the hot grate and grill until lightly toasted, 1 to 2 minutes per side.
  7. To serve, place a lettuce leaf on top of a slice of toast. Top with a burger, tomato slice, and Cheese Sauce , if using. Slap a piece of bread on top and serve at once.
