Bar Marmont, Los Angeles Named for a line cook who added bacon, avocado and Russian dressing to the house burger, the Uncle Louie was once available only to staffers. Then a manager ordered a burger "Louie-style" in front of a few of the bar's regulars and word got out. By popular demand, it was added to the menu.    More Terrific Burgers  

How to Make It

Step 1    

In a medium bowl, mix the ketchup with the mayonnaise, pickles, vinegar, dry mustard, cayenne and Old Bay; season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Step 2    

Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. In a large bowl, season the chuck with 2 teaspoons of kosher salt and 1/2 teaspoon of pepper. Gently mix the seasonings into the meat and shape into four 3/4-inch-thick patties. Grill the hamburgers over moderately high heat for about 4 minutes per side for medium-rare. Set the burgers on the buns, top with the ketchup sauce, lettuce, tomato, cheese, bacon and avocado and serve.
