Whenever I see “Best Ever Recipe” on Pinterest, I immediately think NOT POSSIBLE. Probably because that really is an opinion. I didn’t think it really was possible to have Red Robin approved burgers at home without a lot of work and access to special ingredients, Red Robin burgers for me rank as “best ever”, but this recipe PROVED ME WRONG. I don’t think I can buy flattened, frozen patties again! I made these in the afternoon so at dinner all I had to do was pop them on the grill. I was also skeptical that they would hold their shape since there isn’t egg in the recipe, but they did just fine!

Burgers–via Little Miss Momma

  • Burger Ingredients
  • 2 lbs ground beef 85/15
  • sesame seed buns
  • 1/2 cup of grated Monterrey jack cheese
  • 1/4 cup BBQ sauce
  • season salt to taste
  • cracked black pepper
  • onion powder
  • Secret Sauce Ingredients
  • 3/4 cup of mayo
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup relish
  • 2 tablespoons worcestershire
  • seasoned sal


    1. Combine the ground beef, grated cheese, bbq sauce, and seasonings. Shape patties that are about 1 inch thick.
    2. Then it is very important to push a 1/2 inch indent into the center of the patty–this is what prevents the patty from becoming a dome. These burgers stay extra moist because the bbq sauce and cheese are mixed in with the meat.
    3. Wait for the skillet to get super hot and then apply a very thin layer of butter to the pan. Place the patties on the pan, indent side up.
    4. Reduce heat to medium and allow this side of the patty to cook for about 4-6 minutes, but make sure it doesn’t burn. Then flip the burger over and cook until done.
    5. For the sauce: Combine all ingredients and whisk until well mixed. Taste and adjust ingredients to your liking.
    6. Assemble the burgers and serve with avocado, lettuce or your choice of toppings!

NotesI also butter and toast the buns on a skillet Pioneer Woman style. Something about a sesame seed bun makes the burger seem more legit.
