dill pickles, or whatever pickle you choose
Gather your ingredients.
Chef’s Note: For presentation purposes, I try to make the potato, burger, all about the same size. In this case 1.5 inches (3.8cm).
Place a rack in the middle position, and preheat the oven to 400f (205c).
Brush the potato rounds with olive oil, and season with salt & pepper.
Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Bake in the oven until cooked through and starting to brown, about 20-25 minutes.
Remove from the oven and reserve.
Chef’s Note: Leave the potatoes on the baking sheet.
Divide the ground chuck into six patties, and sprinkle with a bit of salt & pepper, 1/2 ounce (14g) each.
Add the butter to a large sauté pan, over medium heat.
Swirl to coat the bottom of the pan, and then add the burgers.
Cook, flipping once, until cooked through, about 2 minutes per side.
Add a bit of horseradish sauce to the top of each one of the potato rounds.
Place the burgers on top of the potato rounds, and then top with a slice of cheese.
Put under the broiler, until the cheese melts and begins to bubble, about 1-2 minutes.
Remove from the baking sheet, and place on a serving plate.
Add a pickle, cherry tomato, and then skewer with a toothpick or other device. Enjoy.
Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
