Ranch Burger

Ralph Lauren's signature burger. At his Chicago restaurant, they use a mix of chuck, brisket, and short rib. If you have an awesome butcher, ask him or her to give you a blend, but you'll get great results with chuck alone.

Ralph's Special Sauce:
1/2 cup mayonnaise (preferably Hellmann's or Best Foods)
1/3 cup ketchup (preferably Heinz)
2 tablespoons sweet relish
1 tablespoon finely chopped cornichons
1 tablespoon finely chopped red onion
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon hot sauce (preferably Tabasco)
Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper

3 pounds ground beef chuck (20% fat)
Kosher salt
8 ounces clothbound cheddar (such as Cabot), thinly sliced
8 sesame buns, toasted
16 slices bacon, cooked
Green leaf lettuce, sliced tomato, sliced red onion, and sliced pickles (for serving)

Ralph's Special Sauce:
Mix mayonnaise, ketchup, relish, cornichons, onion, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, and hot sauce in a small bowl; season sauce with salt and pepper.

Do Ahead

Sauce can be made 2 days ahead. Cover and chill.

Prepare grill for medium-high heat. Divide beef into 8 portions (about 6 ounces each). Working with 1 portion at a time, cup your hands around the meat and begin to gently shape it into a round patty, being careful not to pack the meat too tightly. Lightly press down on patty to flatten, then press a slight indentation into the center with your thumb (this will prevent patties from bulging when cooked).

Generously season both sides of patties with salt and grill 5 minutes. Turn and top with cheese. Cover grill and cook until cheese is melted and patties are medium-rare, about 5 minutes more. Transfer to a platter and let rest 5 minutes.

Build burgers with buns, patties, bacon, lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, and special sauce.
