So named because I created it at my parents summer home in West Hampton Dunes, New York. This burger is salty, sweet, spicy and incredibly moist, thanks to the brown sugar and egg yolk.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine all 7 ingredients until well mixed.
  2. Portion the beef mixture into two patties that are roughly 1/2 lb. each.
  3. Preheat a cast iron or non-stick skillet to medium-high heat and add a drizzle of olive oil or spray non-stick spray.
  4. Cook the burgers to desired doneness and serve on a toasted bun, english muffin or two slices of bread with your choice of toppings: mustard, ketchup, steak sauce, lettuce, tomato, onion, etc.
  5. NOTE: If your burgers are very thick, (like mine were) sear them on both sides in the skillet (about 1-2 minutes per side) and then transfer them to a sheet pan lined with aluminum foil in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 5-10 minutes. If you do this, keep an eye on the burgers and don't blame me if your burgers come out dry. :-).
