Valentine’s Burger

20 Mins


4 Martin’s Sandwich Potato Rolls

1 Pound Ground Beef

4 Slices White American Cheese

1 Medium Tomato

1 Small Red Onion

1/2 Cup Red (Purple) Cabbage, shredded


Mayo-Ketchup “Special Sauce”

○ 1/2 Cup Mayonnaise

○ 2 Tablespoons Ketchup

○ 1 Teaspoon Dijon Mustard (or ½ tsp mustard powder)

○ 1 Teaspoon Dill Pickling Brine or Relish

○ 1/2 Teaspoon Garlic Powder

○ 1/4 Teaspoon Smoked Paprika

○ Salt and Pepper, to taste

○ Pinch of Cayenne

○ Optional: Dash of Worcestershire Sauce, Lemon Juice, and/or Hot Sauce

Serves: 4


Step 1

Prepare the Mayo-Ketchup Special Sauce. Combine sauce ingredients in a medium sized bowl; stir to combine. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

Tip: Add a pinch of sugar, dash of vinegar or lemon juice, and/or additional salt to adjust the flavor balance as desired.

Step 2

Using a large heart shaped cookie cutter, form the ground beef into four heart shaped patties. Generously season both sides with salt and pepper.

Step 3

On a large skillet or griddle, pan fry burger patties over medium-high heat, flipping half way through. Cook until burgers reach desired level of doneness; use a meat thermometer to check internal temperature.

Step 4

During last minute of cooking, add a slice of cheese to each burger patty and cover until melted.

Step 5

While burgers are cooking, prepare your veggies. Cut four even slices from the tomato, then shape each into a heart using a sharp knife. Peel the red onion, separate a few of the outer layers, cut these into four pieces, then cut each into a heart shape.

Step 6

Cut the Sandwich Potato Rolls into heart shapes using a sharp knife. Cut two diagonal slices from one side of the bun, then cut a v-shape slice out of the opposite side.

Step 7

Build your burgers. Spread some Special Sauce onto the cut sides of the top and bottom buns. Onto the bottom bun, layer a heart-shaped burger patty, then a heart-shaped tomato slice, a heart-shaped onion slice, and some shredded purple cabbage. Finish off with the top bun. Repeat with remaining burgers.

Step 8

Serve and enjoy.
