Check out my post on How to Make Burgers. Which discusses how to make the Burger Patties, their Sizes, How to cook, and the Seasonings for Burger Patties. Other topics include Toasting the Buns and Wrapping the Burgers, as well as freezing the Patties.

It’s an informative post outlining the various components that come together to create your burger. The Toppings & Sauces are up to you.


A&W uses 85 g – 90 g Burger Patties. Season the Burger Patties straight from frozen on both sides and Sear or Sear and then season. The latter will preserve the seasoning a bit better since they don’t burn up during searing. Although these cook up in only about 5 minutes.


Teen Sauce is the sauce used for this Teen Burger, which is basically a Mayonnaise with either a BBQ Sauce or Thousand Island Dressing. Taking a look at the ingredients by A&W it could be Mayonnaise with BBQ Seasoning.

Ketchup and Mustard also go on the Teen Burger, which is also the Mama Sauce.
