Meatless Meat burgers
3 pounds of Impossible burger
2 cups finely chopped dill pickles
1 cup mayonnaise
4 tablespoons ketchup
4 tablespoons sauce from a can of chipotles in adobo sauce
1 teaspoon Kosher salt, and more for later
8 potato rolls
2 1/2 heads of iceberg lettuce, ;eaves separated and torn into pieces about the size of the buns.
2 white onions, very thinly sliced into rings on a mandoline.
8 thin tomato slices (optional)
4 teaspoons vegetable oil
16 slices of American cheese
Prepare a grill for high heat. Place a cast-iron griddle, flat side up, on grate; heat until very hot, at least 20 minutes.
Mix together pickles, mayonnaise, ketchup, adobo sauce and ½ teaspoon of salt in a medium bowl. Set special sauce aside.
Divide beef into eight 3-ounce portions (don't form into patties). Place four portions between two sheets of parchment paper, spacing 6 inches apart, and, using a meat mallet or skillet, firmly smash to create thin patties, about 5 inches across. Transfer to a baking sheet. Repeat with remaining portions and fresh parchment paper.
Wrap all the buns together in a large sheet of foil to make a packet (this will keep buns soft and from getting too toasted on the grill). Place packet on grate and grill, turning once, until buns are warmed through, about 1 minute. Spread sauce over cut sides of buns. Place 3 to 4 pieces of lettuce on bottom buns and top each with some onion and a tomato slice, if using.
Drizzle oil over griddle and use paper towels to evenly coat surface. The oil needs to be hot; you should see smoke almost instantly. Season patties lightly with salt. Place four on griddle, seasoned side down, and season top sides lightly with salt. Cook, undisturbed, until outer edges are brown and undersides are very crisp, about 2 minutes. Flip and place a slice of cheese on top of each patty. Cook until cheese is melted, about 30 seconds. Transfer patties to buns with toppings, stacking two patties on each bun. Repeat with remaining four patties, scraping off any cheese stuck to griddle in between batches.
