Jimmy Buffett's "Cheeseburger in Paradise"

Recipe from: Jimmy Buffetts Margaritaville Restaurant
Servings: 4

28 ounces beef chuck, diced
2 tablespoons kosher salt
1 tablespoon ground black pepper
½ tablespoon garlic salt
½ tablespoon onion salt
1 teaspoon celery salt
8 slices American cheese
4 sesame hamburger buns, toasted
8 leaves iceberg lettuce
4 slices tomato, ¼ inch thick
4 slices red onion, ¼ inch thick
4 toothpicks
4 pickle spears
2 pounds Idaho potatoes

Using a meat grinder with a ⅜ inch plate, grind the meat. Change to a ⅛ inch plate, and grind a second time. Shape the ground meat into 4 (7 ounce) patties. In a mixing bowl, combine the kosher salt, pepper, garlic salt, onion salt and celery salt. Mix well. Place burger on a hot grill and season with the seasoning salt. Cook the burgers halfway to desired temperature and flip over and finish cooking. Place cheese on the burger when it is ¾ of the way cooked and melt. Place bottom bun on plate. Place burger on bottom bun. Place lettuce, tomato and onion on top of the burger. Cover with top bun and secure with a toothpick. Place pickle next to the burger.

Cut potatoes into fries and deep fry in 375°F oil until crisp. Place fries on the plate.
