Servings 4

Ingredients

  • 2 Lbs Ground Chuck Beef 80% Lean / 20% Fat
  • 4 Tsp Salt
  • 1 Tsp Pepper
  • 4 Leaves Lettuce
  • 4 Jalapenos
  • 8 Slices Blue Cheese
  • 4 Hamburger Buns
  • 8 Pieces Bacon

Instructions

  1. Dice and de-seed half of the jalapenos. Cut some round slices from the other ones.

  2. Begin cooking bacon. You can put it in a pan, in the oven for 15-20 min at 400 degrees.

  3. Get your grill/pan/etc hot.

  4. Mix salt, pepper, and diced jalapenos with the meat. Flatten into patties that are about 1/2 inch larger than the buns.

  5. Put a thumbprint in the middle of the patty so it doesn’t puff up when cooking.

  6. Crumble the blue cheese.

  7. Grill your burgers about 4min on the first side.

  8. Flip burgers and immediately add cheese. Put the buns face down on the grill. Cook until you reach the correct temp (140F for medium), usually about 2 to 4 minutes.

  9. Place lettuce on the bottom, then burger, sliced jalapenos and finally the bacon and enjoy!
