(PUT AN EGG ON IT!)

Th­ese burg­ers were a huge hit with our friends dur­ing foot­ball sea­son. Reg­u­lar mayo can eas­ily be sub­sti­tuted for the gar­lic aioli if de­sired.

1. Whisk may­on­naise, gar­lic, lemon juice and lemon zest un­til blended. Re­frig­er­ate.

2. For burg­ers, com­bine the next six in­gre­di­ents, mix­ing lightly but thor­oughly (do not over­mix). Shape into eight pat­ties. Grill, cov­ered, over medium di­rect heat un­til a ther­mome­ter reads 160°, 5-7 min­utes on each side. Top with cheese; grill, cov­ered, un­til the cheese is melted,

1-2 min­utes longer. Place burg­ers on bun bot­toms. Keep warm.

Test Kitchen tip: For the cover, we formed four burg­ers in­stead of eight. You’ll need to grill them a minute or two longer per side. Place them on reg­u­lar size pret­zel buns and top with one egg each.

slow and steady Gen­tle heat en­sures even cook­ing and pre­vents eggs from be­com­ing tough and rub­bery.
