Expert Tips

Sandwich spread is a mayonnaise-based product with pickle relish and special seasonings added for a tangy and slightly sweet flavor. Look for it in the mayonnaise section of the supermarket.

This recipe is easy to double if you are entertaining a crowd. Just be sure you have space on your grill for 12 patties or cook them in batches.
