The Big Ugly

Big Ugly Burger wide

You've had burger ...after burger ...after boring burger.

FINALLY!  A handful of AWESOMENESS you'll remember!


½ pound ground beef
4 ½ tablespoons ROCHESTER PLATE SAUCE + 2 tablespoons more for topping
2 slices yellow American cheese (or jalepeno cheese)
1 slice large Ugly tomato
1 leaf greenleaf lettuce
1 thin slice white onion
1 tablespoon butter, softened
salt & pepper
1 large burger bun (pictured: Anzio’s Hearty Sandwich Roll), halved
Tabasco Sauce, spicy brown mustard, ketchup




Thouroughly mix the 4 ½ tbl ROCHESTER PLATE SAUCE into the ground beef form into a 5 – 5 ½ inch patty (for smaller burger, use 1/3 lb beef with 3 tbl Plate Sauce). Butter the inside of both halves of the bun.  Grill the buttered side of the bun halves until they are golden brown with grill marks.  Grill the burger patty to your liking, 3-6 minutes per side depending on your grill temperature.  HINT: do not move the burger around a lot!  When cooked, melt the cheese over the patty.  Season with salt and pepper.

To build your burger, start with the bottom bun, then lettuce, tomato, onion, burger patty, remaining ROCHESTER PLATE SAUCE, condiments to taste and bun top.
