Mayonnaise preparation

Combine all the ingredients. Let sit for 30 minutes. The mayonnaise will keep for a few days.

In a large bowl, mix the beef and the other ingredients.

Shape into patties 1/2 in. (1 cm) thick.

Preheat the barbecue to medium.

Grill the patties until the internal temperature is 160°F (70°C) or until the cooking juices released are clear and no longer pink.

Turn the patties over just once when half-cooked; while cooking, avoid pressing the meat with a spatula so that the meat stays tender.

Hamburger presentation

Cut an onion kaiser roll in half and grill lightly.

Place a portion of spinach leaves on the bottom half and top with a grilled hamburger.

Add the basil-tomato mayonnaise, as desired.
