Hope you all had a great weekend. I posted a photo to my Instagram yesterday about the dinner that Brett and I threw together… It was all so good that I had to share! The first part of this delicious dinner were the super easy to make Jalapeno Burgers. Literally just takes a few ingredients:
- jalapeno burger patties (I just bought the ones in the butchers section at Stater Brothers, they always have them in stock and have a great kick to them.)
- butter lettuce: Also used in the pear salad recipe I’ll post after this…
- honey dijon mustard
- light mayo
- 1 tomato sliced
- sliced provolone cheese
- fresh cracked pepper
- Hawaiian sweet hamburger buns
Again, all items can be picked up at your local Stater Bro’s, or make your own patties using lean ground beef, diced jalapenos, garlic, cracked peppercorn, salt, and chili flakes if you want that extra kick.
Toast the buns, then set aside. Cook the hamburgers on a cook top for approx 3-4 min. per side for medium burgers on high heat. While they’re cooking, add mayo and mustard to the buns, and a layer of lettuce to the bottom bun.
*A tip I learned watching Diners, Drive Ins and Dives: When the burgers are almost done, top with the slice of cheese, pour a splash of water on the patties to create steam, and cover with either an upside down skillet or bowl to trap the steam. It helps melt the cheese quickly, and infuse some extra juice in the burger!
Remove from heat and put a burger on top of the lettuce of each lower patty. Add the tomato and top with the top bun. So easy! Whole process only takes 10-12 minutes and you’re in spicy burger heaven!
Hope you enjoy! Try them with my baked sweet potato fry recipe, and/or the Asian Pear Salad!
Lots of Love,
