  • Double Beef Patty - 40 Ounces (double cheese if the recipe includes it)

  • Tillamook Cheddar - 4 Slices

  • Thick Cut Bacon - 8 Slices

  • Dill Pickle Chips 0.25 pounds / 4 Ounces

  • Fried Egg - 4 Eggs

  • Thousand Island Dressing 0.25 pounds / 4 Ounces

  • Brioche Style Bun - 4 Buns



  1. Turn on the oven and preheat to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with foil and lay the bacon on top.

  3. Divide the meat into 5 ounce portions. Form each portion loosely into a 3/4-inch-thick patty and make a depression in the center with your thumb. Season both sides of each burger with salt and pepper.

    • Take care not to over work the meat
    • Allowing the meat to warm up to near room temperature will provide a better sear that will lock in flavor


Cooking Directions:


  1. Place the bacon in the oven and start a timer. Begin checking on the bacon around 12 minutes into cooking. The bacon should take approximately 15 to 20 minutes to be a perfect crispy golden brown.

    • 4 Minutes = Medium-Well
    • 4.5 Minutes = Well

  7. Place cheese on top of meat during the final minute of cooking

  9. Lightly toast the bun during the last minute of cooking on a separate pan at low-medium heat (if desired).
