Cheeseburger with Spicy Mayo
This Cheeseburger with Spicy Mayo recipe is for those who like it a little hot. In this recipe we use our Original Dipping Sauce – HOT. It is perfect for those who like it on the warm side. If you are not a chili head and don’t want to go for the two-pepper version, then use the Original Dipping Sauce – Medium.
Great tasting cheeseburgers require quality ground beef. We like to use grass fed organic ground beef. It does cost a little more but you’ll taste the difference. If you don’t believe that then do your own side-by-side comparison some time to convince yourself.
A masterpiece burger also requires a great bun. That bun will be made more special if you thoughtfully prepare it. Make your bun extraordinary by pan frying it in a little oil or butter. We prefer coconut oil. This gives the bun a nice flavor, warmth, and adds a slightly crunchy interior to your cheeseburger. This is another case where you can do a side-by-side comparison. Test your preferences using slider-sized burgers and buns so you don’t get too full. Once you begin pan frying your buns it is doubtful you’ll return to the ordinary.
Once your burger has a solid bun and patty foundation you need to build upon it. We love to layer on heirloom tomato, perfectly ripened avocado, crunchy pickles, lettuce, thinly sliced red onion or grilled onion. Use whatever your favorite toppings are. And of course we make spicy mayo from mixing Original Dipping Sauce and mayonnaise. Adjust the heat to your liking.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
One pound of hamburger will easily make 4 – 1/4 pound burgers. Sliders will require less meet and produce more burgers. If you go with 1/3 pound burgers you’ll only make three with one pound of hamburger meat. This is a tasty main course for 3-4 people. As an appetizer, you can easily make a dozen sliders with one pound of hamburger.
Recipe Instructions – Cheeseburger with Spicy Mayo
First, Prepare Hamburger Patties
Preheat your grill. While your grill is heating up, in a large bowl, combine hamburger meat, salt and pepper. Next, shape hamburger meat into four patties. Place burger patties on hot grill (we like to use a griddle over the top of our grill). Cook burgers for 7 minutes on first side. Then, turn and cook side two until desired doneness, for us that’s about another 4 minutes.
Prepare the Burger Buns
Heat a frying pan to a medium heat. Next, spread a thin layer of coconut oil on the inside of each bun. Place buns face-down on the hot pan. Let buns cook until golden crispy or to your desired liking. Finally, remove buns from the pan to a serving plate.
Prepare Spicy Mayo using Original Dipping Sauce
Spread a thick layer of mayonnaise on each hamburger bun. Then, scoop a teaspoon of Original Dipping Sauce on to the bun and spread it evenly. You may adjust your heat preference by adding more sauce. If you like it Hot, then use the two-pepper version, Original Dipping Sauce – Hot.
Next, gather all of your ingredients and prepare to assemble your ultimate Cheeseburger with Spicy Mayo. First, place the hamburger patty on the sauce-slathered bottom bun. Next, top the still warm burger patty with your favorite slice of cheese. The warm patty will melt the cheese. Or, place your cheese on the patty while still on the grill. It is a personal preference. Too much grill heat and your cheese tends to melt away. Either method is fine.
Continue Assembly of your Cheeseburger
After your burger and cheese have been placed on your sauced-up bun, it’s time to assemble the rest of the toppings. Too many toppings and the flavors will compete. Your burger will be difficult to hold and your cheeseburger won’t sit well on a plate. It’s best to have a focus for your cheeseburger, e.g. mushrooms or bacon or egg, etc.
Essential Cheeseburger Toppings
Essential cheeseburger toppings include ripened tomato, pickles, and onion. We like the onions sliced thinly whether served fresh or sautéed. If you use lettuce consider shredded lettuce or at least removing the “toppler” that is present in romaine lettuce. That is the large hard white portion that will topple your burger, hence the name. Simply remove the toppler and eat. Of course you’ll want to slather spicy mayo on the top bun, too, before assembling your burger.
