Gilleburger copycat recipe

We have a drive in here in Wisconsin called Gilles. I have had a love affair with their gille burger for years. I finally figured out their secret's pickle relish!!!


  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 2-1/2 pounds Ground Beef
  • 1/2 whole Large Onion, Diced
  • 1 medium Green Bell Pepper, Diced
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 5 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 1-1/2 cup Ketchup
  • 2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Chili Powder (more To Taste)
  • 1 teaspoon Dry Mustard
  • 3/4 cup sweet pickle relish
  •  Worcestershire Sauce, To Taste

Add butter to a large skillet or dutch oven over medium high heat. Add ground beef and cook until brown. Drain most of the fat and discard.
Add onions, green pepper,celery and garlic. Cook for a few minutes, or until vegetables begin to get soft.
Add ketchup, brown sugar, chili pepper, dry mustard,  and sweet pickle relish. Stir to combine, cover and simmer for 30 minutes . Serve on a fresh Sesame seed hamburger bun.  Add a slice  of cheddar cheese if you dare!
