This year’s Time Out New York Battle of the Burger will see 20 amazing NYC restaurants battling it out to see whose Burger reigns supreme. One of the finalists taking part in this Burger-lover’s dream event is Chef Mike Boulos of the Freehold in Brooklyn.

Chef Mike, who cut his teeth early and has had his hand in several successful restaurants over the years, is bringing his Freehold Burger to the table this year. Topped with American cheese, pickled onions, his signature Burger sauce and a House rosemary salt, the Freehold Burger is nothing if not a culinary masterpiece. Chef Mike shared his Burger recipe (and Burger sauce recipe) with us ahead of this year’s Battle of the Burger so Burger-lovers and home grillers could take a stab at building this beast at home.
