Things To Grab

  • Charcoal or gas grill
  • Large bowl
  • Meat thermometer
  • Small bowl

Directions

  1. Prepare a charcoal or gas grill for direct cooking over medium heat.
  2. Make Burgers: In a large bowl, combine beef, pickling spice and fennel seed. Shape into four 3/4-inch patties, about 8-oz. each.

  3. Grill patties on a well-greased rack for 12 to 14 minutes or until internal temperature of patties reaches 160 degrees, turning once halfway through. During the last 1 to 2 minutes of grilling, top patties with corned beef and Swiss cheese, and place bread slices on grill directly over heat to lightly toast. Remove from grill; let patties rest for 5 minutes.
  4. Make Homemade Thousand Island Dressing: In a small bowl, stir together ketchup, mayonnaise, and sweet pickle relish. Stir in hard-boiled egg. Season to taste with Hy-Vee salt and black pepper.

  5. To serve burgers, spread Thousand Island dressing on half of the bread slices. Layer with sauerkraut, corned beef-and-cheese-topped-patties, and pickles. Top with remaining bread slices.
