Instructions
  1. Start by making your burger patties. Gently divide your ground beef into four portions of roughly equal size, using your hands to shape each loosely into a burger shape. Be careful not to squeeze or pack too roughly, or you will lose juiciness as your patties cook. Season with salt and pepper to desired preference on each side.
  2. Heat a large pan greased with bacon fat (or your fat of choice) over high heat, using a spatula to transfer your burger patties to the hot pan. Cook 3 minutes, flip over with the spatula and cook an additional 2-3 minutes, topping with cheese in the last minute before removing from heat and setting aside.
  3. Meanwhile, make your burger sauce by mixing mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard, lemon juice, and grated pickle in a bowl, seasoning with salt and pepper as desired.
  4. Finally, to assemble the deconstructed burgers, tear off your lettuce leaves and place in a serving bowl. To put the burgers together, use the lettuce leaves as a bun, adding sauce and serving with desired toppings.
