The secret to a great hamburger

After the long winter and less-than-impressive spring, Rhode Islanders are certainly ready for grilling this summer.

Celebrity Chef Tim Love, who is known for his freewheeling personality and signature grill master skills, joined the Rhode Show Wednesday with tips on how to cook the perfect burger.

His charm and southern hospitality are always on display, whether it’s at his restaurants, on TV, or at culinary events and cultural festivals around the world such as the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen.

Tim Love’s Best Ever Juicy Burger:

Prep Time: 15 minutes – Chill Time: 15 minutes – Cook Time: 8 minutes

  1. 1 1/2 lb lean ground chuck
  2. 2 Tbsp. Hellmann’s® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise
  3. 1 1/2 tsp. smoked paprika
  4. 1 tsp. salt
  5. 1/2 tsp. each garlic powder, chili powder and cayenne pepper
  6. 4 slices American cheese
  7. 4 whole wheat hamburger buns

MIX ground beef with Hellmann’s® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise and spices and roll into 4 balls; cover and chill 15 minutes.

FLATTEN balls into 1/2-inch thick patties. Grill 4 minutes per side, topping with cheese during last minute of cook time. Brush buns with Mayonnaise; grill until toasted.

PLACE burgers on buns; top if desired, with shredded Bibb lettuce and sliced tomato and red onion.
