Prep Time:






For Serving

  • 6 dill pickles, sliced vertically into ½-inch (1.25cm) rounds
  • 2 iceberg lettuce leaves, cut into 1-inch (2.5 cm) pieces
12 toothpicks


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (205°C).
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicon baking mat and set aside.
  3. Place the beef, finely chopped onions, and salt in a large bowl. Mix with your hands until thoroughly combined. Then, roll into small balls about the size of a golf ball. You should be able to make 12 balls in total. Place the completed balls on the prepared baking sheet and press down with your palm slightly so they’re more cookie shaped.
  4. Once all patties are complete, bake in the preheated oven for 12 to 15 minutes or until desired doneness is achieved.
  5. Meanwhile, prepare the sauce by placing all sauce ingredients in a medium-sized bowl. Whisk to combine, transfer to serving ramekins.
  6. When the patties are complete and have cooled slightly, place on top of a dill pickle slice, followed by a piece of lettuce, and a second dill pickle slice. Press a toothpick through the slider and set on a serving plate.
  7. Serve alongside the sauce for dipping and enjoy!
