Make Doug’s Sure Could Use a Bloody Mary Burger:


  • 1 lb. ground chuck
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • 2 tbs. Worcestershire Sauce
  • 2 tbs pickle juice


Add all ingredients to a large bowl and knead together. Separate the mixture into 3 patties and season with celery salt, dill, and paprika to taste. Grill burgers to your preference, adding pepper jack cheese when there are a couple minutes left of cook time.


  • 1 tsp. horseradish
  • 1 tbs. mayonnaise
  • 1/2 tsp. worcestershire sauce
  • Hot sauce to taste


Add all ingredients to a small bowl and mix until it reaches a thick consistency.

Pick your favorite bun, and add the sauce to the top bun. Add the burger to the bottom half and top with bacon, pickles, and olives.
