The Emmy Burger is responsible for millions of Instagram likes, and now you can make the famous dish for yourself! Served at Emily and Matt Hyland’s flagship restaurants, Emily and Emmy Squared, the Emmy Burger tops many New York City “Best Burger” lists thanks to a duo of rich sauces and flavorful ingredients all around.

That’s why it’s no surprise the recipe was included in the Hyland’s debut cookbook – Emily: The Cookbook Pizza, Burgers and More. The dish boasts a collection of umami-rich ingredients such as gochujang – Korean fermented chili paste – and caramelized onions, that combine into “mouthful after mouthful of lusciousness.” For those who are up to the challenge, the cookbook also includes a variation on the original recipe known as the two-patty Emmy Double Stack Burger – a eight-patty burger topped with American cheese. Serve with fries and cornichons and wait for the meat sweats to set in.

Check out the Emmy Burger recipe below and pick up the Hyland’s cookbook for additional recipes such as the iconic Emily Detroit pan pizza and Nguyen’s hot wings with ranch dip.
