Quadzilla Burger Recipe – Quadruple Grilled Cheeseburger!
What is The Quadzilla?
The Quadzilla is obviously named after Godzilla, the giant Japanese dinosaur-like monster that shoots laser out of its mouth – a perfect comparison for this four-patty cheeseburger.
But the comparison goes beyond its size. Many of the ingredients are either Japanese or Japanese-inspired. Some might be harder to source locally, but are available on online marketplaces like Amazon. More common substitutes will be listed wherever possible.
Japanese Burger Sauce
- 1/4 Cup Japanese Mayo/Regular Mayo
- 3-4 Tbsp Okonomi sauce/Chipotle BBQ sauce
Simply mix the two in a small cup. Adjust how much Okonomi sauce you put in it – you want the savory of the mayo to be present, while the sweet and spicy tones of the Okonomi shine through.
Sweet Onion Topping
- Sweet onion
- Shichimi Togarashi seasoning
Use a cast iron skillet on a hot grill, or do this on your kitchen top. Chop the sweet onion up, and let it cook in some vegetable oil over medium heat. Once it starts getting translucent/yellow, mix in some of the Togarashi seasoning.
Grilling 4 Patties
- Burger buns
- Crisped up bacon
- 80/20 ground beef (4 ounces per patty)
- Japanese Worcestershire Sauce
Onto the actual grilling! Fire up your pit, prepping it for direct cooking. If you have a flat top, set that up, because it’s going to make your life a lot easier with the thin burger patties.
Give the buns a quick, light toast.
And now, the actual patties of the quadruple grilled cheeseburger. You want to make 4 of them, so they are going to be fairly thin. Make four 4-ounce meatballs, and use a patty smasher to get them down to about 1/4th-1/8th of an inch.
Place the chopped up crispy bacon under one of the patties, so the bacon pieces become embedded to the meat.
Once all 4 patties are cooking, give their top sides a light coating of japanese Worcestershire sauce. This is going to act as the salt element, and add a ton of flavor to the patties.
Flip the patties when ready, and add one slice of cheese to all of them except for the one with the bacon. You can add different cheeses (provolone, american cheese, cheddar-jack, etc.)
Assembling the Quadruple Grilled Cheeseburger
It’s time to stack these babies! Place all four patties on the bottom bun, with the bacon patty on top. Then throw on some of the onion topping, and finish the whole thing off with some Japanese BBQ sauce.
