DIRECTIONS

  • Mix all of the dry ingredients together in a separate bowl for McDonald's burger seasoning.
  • Add the meat to a large bowl and lightly blend. Weigh the meat mixture into exactly four 4-ounce patties for a quarter pound McDonald’s patty.
  • Place the burgers on a sheet pan in between two pieces of parchment paper and place in the freezer for 1 1/2 hours.
  • When ready to cook, remove the onions from the water and drain thoroughly.
  • Heat a large, nonstick griddle to high. Remove the burgers from the freezer exactly 2 minutes before you are ready to cook them.
  • Place the bun on a clean part of the flat top and toast until warm.
  • Place the patties on the griddle, season heavily with the seasonings and let them sit for 30 seconds. Using a spatula, press down heavily on the patty for roughly 6 seconds. Flip the burger and repeat, remembering to season heavily.
  • When buns are warm, remove to work station. On the crown of each bun, place 5 nickel-sized dollops of ketchup, four in each corner and one in the center. In the empty spaces, place five smaller dots of mustard.
  • Divide the onions between the buns placing them on the ketchup and mustard.
  • Place a slice of cheese on each bottom bun then the cooked patty on top of the cheese.
  • Add another slice of cheese to each hamburger patty and place 2-3 pickles chips on top of the cheese.
  • Assemble the top and bottom portions of the hamburger and serve.
