I was recently watching an episode of Kelsey’s Essentials on the Cooking Channel. She went to one of Bobby Flay’s restaurants – Bobby’s Burger Palace. In this episode, Bobby showed Kelsey how they make a burger there. More specifically, he showed here the Dallas Burger. After watching, I had to make my own version at home since there is not one Bobby’s Burger Palace near me.
So the key items on a Dallas Burger include cheese, bbq sauce, coleslaw, and pickles. Now at Bobby’s Burger Palace, you can also order any burger “crunchified” which means it gets a layer of potato chips added on to it. See why I had to do this! It was delicious and I definitely think it is a fun way to dress up a regular old burger.
On other tip that Bobby shared on the show was to always use a ground beef that is 80/20 for burgers. You need to have one with enough fat to make your burger juicy! At the Bobby’s Burger Palace, they cook their burgers on a flat top grill. I opted for a bbq grill instead. The weather is too nice not to be grilling outdoors.
- 2 lbs. ground beef that is 80/20
- garlic salt
- 6 hamburger buns
- 6 slices of cheese (I used cheddar)
- bbq sauce (I used Famous Dave's Sweet and Zesty)
- dill pickles
- 1 lb. deli coleslaw
- lays potato chips
- Shape your ground beef into 6 patties. Make in indention in the middle of each patty. This helps the patty to end up cooking nice and flat, rather than getting all puffy in the center.
- Liberally season both sides of the patty with garlic salt and pepper. If the garlic salt scared you, just go with regular salt.
- Grill the patties until fully cooked.
- Add the slices of cheese to the patties and allow to melt. Remove patties from the grill.
- Assemble burgers on the buns and top with the remaining ingredients.
