If you’re one of the unlucky people not living near a Shake Shack, don’t be discouraged. Blogger A Cozy Kitchen has the perfect copycat Shake Shack burger recipe that’ll have you drooling after the first bite!
Because authenticity matters, she advises using potato rolls for the buns. (Martin’s is the brand Shake Shack uses.) Don’t forget to butter and toast it before assembly!
A copycat burger also requires, of course, the special sauce mixture of mayo, ketchup, pickle brine, and seasonings. She explains the proper assembly instructions which start with the special sauce on a toasted buttered bun and continues with lettuce, tomatoes, the patty, and ending with the cheese and pickles.
