Au Cheval Copycat Burger

Au Cheval CopyCat Burger

If you’ve ever been to Chicago, you know the must-try burger is at Au Cheval. It might be a 3 hour wait minimum at all times, but there’s a wait for a reason! I won’t be making it to Chicago any time soon, so I decided to re-create the dish at home. See below for the recipe!


Serving Size: 2 burgers

  • 6 ground beef patties (about 1/2 inch thick)
  • 2 brioche buns, toasted
  • 2 slices thick-cut bacon, cut in half
  • 2 eggs
  • 6 slices American cheese
  • 8 pickle chips
  • 1/4 cup red onion, diced
  • 2 tbsp mayo
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp chives
  • salt and pepper to taste


For the Dijonaise:

  • Mix together your mayo and dijon mustard. Set aside

For the Burger:

  • Fry your egg in a sauce pan and season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • Pepper your bacon and cook in a separate saucepan. Set aside.
  • Season 3 burger patties with salt and pepper and place them on the grill (or in a sauce pan) until cooked to your liking. Flip the patties and top with a slice of American cheese on each. Remove from heat and set all 3 on top of each other and allow to melt together.
  • Assembly: On your bottom brioche bun, place your 3 burger patties and top with the 2 bacon halves. On the top bun, spread your dijonaise, add your chopped red onion, pickles, fried egg, and diced chives. Now put it together!
