This burger takes everything you thought you knew about umami and doubles it. Think: flavorful, rich patties, topped with the most over-the-top umami ketchup. Oh, and did we mention the aged cheddar cheese, melted on top? Better make that "triples it."

Ingredients (4 to 6servings)

For the umami ketchup

  • 4 tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ teaspoon fish sauce
  • ½ teaspoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons mellow (sweet) white miso
  • ½ teaspoon sugar

For the umami burgers

  • 1 ½ pounds ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • ¼ onion, minced
  • ½ teaspoon sugar
  • 1 cup cubed bread (I used one small Martin's Whole Wheat Potato Bun)
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ recipe of umami ketchup (see above)
  • 1 small bunch watercress
  • 6 slices aged cheddar, grated Parmigiano, crumbled gorgonzola, Stilton, or sliced American cheese (or 4 if making larger patties)
  • 6 large hamburger buns (or 4 if making larger patties)
