Calories 250kcal

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1 strip bacon
  • 1 tablespoon pickled jalapenos (sliced)
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1/2 plum tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha sauce
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 leaves lettuce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1/2 teaspoon basil

Instructions

  • Knead (press, fold and stretch) your meat for about 3 minutes.
  • This is important because it makes the meat very sticky and keeps it together when adding all your ingredients to it.
  • Knead the meat very well Dice and chop your ingredients very finely so they don’t prevent the meat from sticking to itself – I’m using bacon, onion, pickled jalapeño and tomato.
  • Chop your ingredients! Add your diced ingredients, sauces (mayo and sriracha recommended), egg (optional) and spices to the meat and knead it again for a few minutes to ensure a uniform consistency of ingredients.
  • Just a ball of awesome Split your ball of meat in half twice and flatten each of the 4 pieces to make very flat patties.
  • Add a tablespoon of butter to the center of two of the pieces of meat and then slap on the non-buttered pieces! Seal up the sides so you end up with 2 nice patties ready for grilling.
  • You can make your patties thicker for a more medium rare burger.
  • Flatten the other half and slap it on top! Throw your patties on the pan (or grill!).
  • If you want delicious, caramelized onions, throw your onions on when you flip your burgers after 5 minutes.
  • Fry or grill each side for 4-5 minutes Flip your onions midway so they cook well on both sides.
  • Your burger should be ready after 5 minutes on the second side.
  • Throw your onions on when you flip your burgers Lay out a two big pieces of lettuce with a spread of mayo and place your juicy patties on them.
  • Top each with your choice of toppings! I added caramelized onions, sriracha, a sliced of tomato, sliced jalapeños and more mayo! Cheese and ketchup are welcome for the more traditional burger.
  • Take a bite and taste those flavors from beginning to end.
  • You’ll probably need 2 bites to really taste the depth of the flavors!
