  • 4 oz (125 g) cheddar cheese
  • 1 piece white sandwich bread, torn into pieces
  • 1   egg
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) Three Onion Rub, divided
  • 1 lb (450 g) 90% lean ground beef
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) black pepper
  • 3   garlic cloves, pressed
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) ketchup, divided
  • 1 1/2 tbsp (22 mL) yellow mustard
  • 2   small dill pickles
  • 1 1/4 cups (300 mL) canned shoestring potatoes or coarsely crushed potato chips
  •  Chopped fresh parsley (optional)


  1. Grate cheese using Microplane® Adjustable Coarse Grater. Process bread in Manual Food Processor until finely chopped. Add egg and 2 tbsp (30 mL) of the rub; process until well combined. Remove to large Bamboo Fiber Bowl
  2. Add beef, pepper, garlic pressed with Garlic Press, 1/4 cup (50 mL) of the ketchup, half of the cheese, and mustard to bread mixture in bamboo bowl. Mix well using gloved hands. 
  3. Form beef mixture into a ball, packing firmly; transfer to Rockcrok™ (2.5-qt./2.35-L) Everyday Pan. Press into a patty to within ½ in. (1 cm) from edges of Pan to an even thickness. Cook, covered, over medium heat 3-6 minutes or until meat begins to sizzle on the sides. 
  4. Remove Pan from heat; transfer to microwave. Microwave, covered, on HIGH 3-4 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 160°F (71°C) in center of patty. 
  5. Meanwhile, combine remaining 1 tbsp (15 mL) rub and remaining ¼ cup (50 mL) ketchup in (1-cup/250-mL) Prep Bowl; mix well. Thinly slice pickles using Utility Knife.  
  6. Mix together remaining cheese and potatoes in Classic Batter Bowl.
