One of the most important things to remember about making a burger is to handle the meat as little as possible! Gentle treatment makes for a tender, juicy hamburger. Use the best quality beef you can find, always.
2 # lean ground beef (extra lean just doesn’t have enough flavour)
3 tbsp minced basil
1/2 cup grated sweet onion
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp freshly ground pepper
jalapeno jack cheese
Gently mix ingredients and form into burgers. (should make about 8 burgers) Allow to rest in fridge or freezer for at least 30 minutes to allow the burger to set.
Grill until cooked through – if you happen to grind your own meat, and know the source, it is great to have it medium rare. Top with jalapeno jack cheese for the last few minutes, allowing to just melt slightly.
This mile high burger had fresh herb aioli on the bottom of a thin red pepper bun, the burger, jalapeno jack cheese, grilled sweet red and yellow pepper, grilled avocado, sauted onions & mushrooms, then topped off with fresh tangy coleslaw.
Delicious and mouth watering good! Get the napkins out …
