Ralph Lauren's signature burger. Watch the video here.


Ralph’s Special Sauce

  • ½ cup mayonnaise (preferably Hellmann's or Best Foods)
  • ⅓ cup ketchup (preferably Heinz)
  • 2 tablespoons sweet relish
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped cornichons
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped red onion
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon hot sauce (preferably Tabasco)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


  • 3 pounds ground beef chuck (20% fat)
  • 8 ounces clothbound cheddar (such as Cabot), thinly sliced
  • Green leaf lettuce, sliced tomato, sliced red onion, and sliced pickles (for serving)

Recipe Preparation

Ralph’s Special Sauce

  • Mix mayonnaise, ketchup, relish, cornichons, onion, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, and hot sauce in a small bowl; season sauce with salt and pepper.

  • Do Ahead: Sauce can be made 2 days ahead. Cover and chill.


  • Prepare grill for medium-high heat. Divide beef into 8 portions (about 6 oz. each). Working with 1 portion at a time, cup your hands around the meat and begin to gently shape it into a round patty, being careful not to pack the meat too tightly. Lightly press down on patty to flatten, then press a slight indentation into the center with your thumb (this will prevent patties from bulging when cooked).

  • Generously season both sides of patties with salt and grill 5 minutes. Turn and top with cheese. Cover grill and cook until cheese is melted and patties are medium-rare, about 5 minutes more. Transfer to a platter and let rest 5 minutes.

  • Build burgers with buns, patties, bacon, lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, and special sauce.

Reviews SectionThis recipe is a winner! I made it when it first was published but also about 4 times since. I don't always make this with bacon, depending on what I have on hand, but I've always made it with the comeback sauce which is spectacular! The cornichons amp it up, but when none on hand, relish is still good enough.
