Homemade A&W Teen Burger. The Description from A&W reads.

A perfectly seasoned patty of 100% pure beef – raised without artificial hormones and steroids – topped with real cheddar cheese, mouth-watering bacon from pork raised without the use of antibiotics, crisp lettuce, onion, tomato, pickles and Teen sauce, served on a freshly toasted sesame seed bun.

The Teen Sauce Ingredients are listed as

canola oil, water, sugar, vinegar, modified corn starch, egg yolk, salt, mustard powder, xanthan gum, potassium sorbate, caramel, spices, calcium disodium EDTA, spice extract.

The Sauce that you see everywhere for the Teen Sauce is Mayo with BBQ Sauce and Some say Thousand Island Dressing. From the Ingredients above, it could be Mayo with BBQ Seasoning.

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.

  • Bacon – 2–3 Strips.
  • Lettuce – Large Torn Pieces
  • Tomato Slice – Half the thickness of the Burger Patty
  • Onion Ring Slice – 1/4 the thickness of the Burger Patty
  • Pickles Ridged – same thickness as the onion
  • Cheddar Cheese Slice
