Happy Monday – I hope you had a great weekend! Today, I’m sharing one of my favorite copycat recipes – The Five Guys Burger Copycat.

Have you ever had a Five Guys Burger?

No? You, my friend, are missing out.

Either way? You’re going to want to make this recipe.

It’s super easy!

As in 5 ingredients and ready in less than 15 minutes…

Plus, you can add your favorite toppings and make your own personalized burger.

Just like at the restaurant!

Personally, I like relish, grilled jalapenos and ketchup on my hamburger, but you do you!

Put out some grilled onions, tomatoes, lettuce, mayonnaise, pickles or whatever else your family might like and let everyone pick their own!

Add a side of homemade french fries and they’ll really love it!
