Dallas Burger

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.

Dallas Burger
  • 2 lbs. ground beef that is 80/20
  • garlic salt
  • pepper
  • 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
  1. 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.
  2. Liberally season both sides of the patty with garlic salt and pepper. If the garlic salt scared you, just go with regular salt.
  3. Grill the patties until fully cooked.
  4. Add the slices of cheese to the patties and allow to melt. Remove patties from the grill.
  5. Assemble burgers on the buns and top with the remaining ingredients.
