- 1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
- 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
- 2 teaspoons minced garlic
- 2 tablespoons ketchup
- 2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
- 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 12 Hawaiian rolls
Step 1: Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil or wax paper and wash your hands.
Step 2: Place the meat in a large mixing bowl. Add the onion, garlic, ketchup, relish, mustard, salt, and pepper, and mix with your hands until all the ingredients are well incorporated.
Step 3: Form the meat into patties, using about 1/4 cup for each. Place the formed patties on the baking sheet. Wash your hands really well with warm, soapy water before continuing.
Step 4: Preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Carefully place 3 or 4 patties in the skillet, being careful not to overcrowd them. Using a plastic turner, turn the burgers over after 4 minutes. Cook the burgers on the second side for 3 minutes. Grasp the skillet using an oven mitt or pot holder, remove the burgers from the skillet and place on a large platter or large plate. Repeat with the remaining patties, add any additional toppings that you like, and serve!
