Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat barbecue or indoor grill to medium heat.
  2. Form the ground beef into a patty with a slightly larger diameter than the sesame seed bun.
  3. Grill the burger on the grill for 3 to 4 minutes per side or until done.
  4. Be sure to generously salt and pepper each side of the patty.
  5. While the patty grills, brown the faces of the bun in a hot skillet over medium heat.
  6. After the buns have browned, spread about 1 1/2 teaspoons of mayonnaise on the face of the top bun, as well as on the bottom bun.
  7. Spread 1 teaspoon of mustard on the face of the top bun, followed by 2 teaspoons of ketchup.
  8. Arrange 3 or 4 bread& butter pickles slices on the bottom bun.
  9. Arrange lettuce on pickles followed by the tomato slices and red onion.
  10. When the beef is cooked, arrange two slices of American cheese on the patty, let it melt a bit, then place the top bun on the cheese and scoop up the whole thing with a spatula and place it on the bottom half of the burger.

What makes the Six Dollar Burger cost $6 is the 1/2lb Angus beef patty... Without that, it's not the Six Dollar Burger, it's just an ordinary hamburger. ;) Of course, you can get a similar burger at Burger King with a Coke and fries for a few cents cheaper...

I haven't had a Carl Jr before but my husband and son have and they said this was very close to the real thing. They liked it. Thanks Dropbeat. Bullwinkle.
