The Fried Pickle Burger is a collaboration from my husband and myself. I created the fried pickles and the hubby created the burger patties and they came together beautifully for the perfect burger. This recipe is easier to cook with two people helping out. One person to do the patties and one person making the fried pickles so everything comes out nice and hot at the same time.
The patty, sauce and fried pickles have so much great flavor that cheese and lettuce is really optional. I just feel better adding lettuce. Like eating a pinch of lettuce makes any difference in my health? I know there is no nutritional value. It is in my head.
How about these fried pickles? The cornmeal might be something you are iffy about trying but it is absolutely delicious. The cornmeal coats the pickles fantastically and leaves the perfect crunch. The big trick for fried pickles is making sure your oil is right at 375 degrees. There is no guessing, use a thermometer to ensure you have the correct temperature. They will cook very quickly so keep an eye on them and remove the pickles right when you see they are getting golden brown. These pickles make a great appetizer and you can use our burger sauce recipe as a dip.
The burger sauce is something the uses ingredients you probably already have in your fridge and pantry. Just whisk it all together and makes a fantastic burger sauce, dip, sandwich spread and more. Really versatile and a must have recipe.
My husband pretty much does all the grilling these days so he was in charge of the burger patties and they turned out really good. Super moist! He says that the trick of these burgers is cooking on a high heat. Cook for 20 minutes and flip every 5 minutes. You can reduce the cook time since it is ground sirloin to make a medium to medium-well done burger patty and it will turn it out great.
