Peanut Butter Burger
You read that right...Peanut Butter Burger. Any normal person would scoff at the idea of putting such a thing as a condiment on a burger. However, with one bite you'll be converted. When you throw this burger on the grill alongside that smokin' bacon, you will know you made the right choice.
- 2 pounds ground beef
- Salt and pepper
- Sliced cheddar cheese
- 4-6 Tablespoons jalapeño jelly
- 4-8 slices of cooked bacon
- 4 hamburger buns
- Ingredients for peanut butter sauce
- 2 cups peanut butter
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 1/2-1 cup of milk
In a microwave safe bowl, mix peanut butter, maple syrup and 1/2 cup milk. Heat in microwave for 30 to 45 seconds at a time, stirring in between until smooth. Add more milk if needed depending on the consistency you like. Set aside.
Form beef into 8 patties. Press the centers of the patties down so that the burgers don’t get too thick in the middle when you grill them. Season each side with salt and pepper.
Preheat grill to medium/high heat.
Grill patties until internal temperature reaches 125 degrees F. for rare, 135 degrees F. for medium rare, 145 degrees F. for medium and 160 degrees F. for well done. Flip patties halfway through cook time. The last few minutes of cooking, add a slice of cheese to patties and let the cheese melt.
Grill each bun, until grill marks appear. Spread jalapeño jelly on each side of the bun. Place the burger on bottom bun and top with bacon. Drizzle on the peanut butter sauce and place the top bun.
