This Hollywood restaurant knows their burgers — the name is meant to signify the temperature difference between a medium-rare and well-done burger. Their Number One burger is, you guessed it, the number one burger served at the iconic and classic burger joint, and chef Tim Goodells shared the recipe with us.

For 25 Degrees 1000 Island Dressing

Combine all of the ingredients together and refrigerate until ready to use. 

For the burger

Heat a griddle or sauté pan over medium-high heat, and coat with olive oil. In a bowl, combine the beef and salt and pepper to taste to form four 5-inch patties. Cook the patties for about 8-9 minutes in the pan, flipping once, to desired doneness. While the burgers are cooking, place all of the bacon in a skillet and cook for about 5 minutes on each side, reserve.

Just before the patties are cooked, place the Crescenza and Gorgonzola cheese on top until melted; remove from heat and let rest. Halve the toasted brioche buns then spread the dressing evenly on each side of the bun. Layer the bacon and arugula to complete the burger. Serve warm.
