Big Chief, Little Chief

Remember a while back I wrote about the Big Chief Burger from the now gone Totem Pole in Royal Oak, MI?  Well I've re- worked it a bit and offer this recipe for the Little Chief.

For the sauce:
1 cup mayo
1/2 tsp curry powder
1/2 tsp granulated garlic or garlic powder
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbl ketchup
1 tsp prepared horseradish
1/2 tsp onion powder

Combine all ingredients and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

For the burgers:
1  1/2 pound ground beef chuck
2 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
4 slices American cheese
Sliced sweet pickles
Shredded iceberg lettuce
The sauce
4 seeded hamburger buns

Season the ground beef with the salt and pepper and form 4 patties out of the mixture.  Grill to your desired "doneness"  ( we like medium for ground meats)
On the bottom of each burger bun layer a slice of cheese, a burger, a few slices of sweet pickle and a little shredded lettuce.
Slather the cut side of the top of the bun with the sauce.  Place on top of the burger and enjoy!
