Bacon Jalapeño Burgers are tangy-spicy, and would be a great addition to your Independence Day celebration.
I’ve been trying to find ways to use up a couple jars of pickled jalapeños we have in the house–My father-in-law gave us one a while ago, and forgetting that we had it, I bought a second jar myself. In my recipe searches, I came across a burger that used them in the burger as well as on top. I adapted it for what we had, and made these Bacon Jalapeño Burgers.
Extra-cheesy, slightly tangy, and not dried-out at all, these burgers are amazing. Jay made his usual acceptance proclamation, and gave me the go-ahead to make these again whenever I wanted (his roundabout way of saying he likes them). Not surprisingly, the bambino wouldn’t go near these, so he had a couple hot dogs instead.
My intention had been to grill these, but we’ve been grilling enough lately that we ran low on charcoal. 8 briquettes wasn’t going to cut it, so I broiled these. They came out just fine, but I am planning to make these again, because I think the smoky flavor infused by the charcoal will meld beautifully with the jalapeños.
