  • 3 lbs ground beef (80% lean/20% fat)
  • 1-2 packets Lipton Onion Soup Mix (1 oz package)
  • 1 sweet yellow onion, chopped
  • 48 dill pickle slices (1 jar is plenty)
  • 8 oz cheddar cheese
  • 1 head of butter or iceberg lettuce


  • 4 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 4 tbsp ketchup
  • 2 tbsp chili sauce (optional)
  • 6 more dill pickle slices


  • Empty ground beef into a large skillet over medium-high heat and quickly mix in onion soup packets while sauteeing beef. Continue to break up beef and stir for about 10-15 minutes until meat is nicely browned and no pink remains. Divide into 8 containers.
  • Chop onion. Shred cheese. Chop lettuce if eating now, otherwise chop right before eating.
  • Mix all sauce ingredients in small bowl of food processor or blender and blend until all ingredients are nicely pureed. (You can just mix the sauce ingredients in a small bowl if you do not want to blend in the pickles but I love the flavor it gives, highly recommended!)
  • Put 6 pickle slices into each container over ground beef. Sprinkle desired amount of onion, cheese, (lettuce), and sauce over ground beef. Store in refrigerator for up to 1 week.
