Here's a great recipe for a burger to wow the tailgating crowd, or for any gathering of friends/family. The topping has tangy zing to it, and the hamburger mixture is made with some ingredients you don't usually see in the mix. Aged cheddar or a smoked provolone cheese will add the final touch to this new twist on the standard hamburger. Goes great with baked beans, corn, or any of your usual tailgating side dishes.
- 2 lbs lean ground beef
- 1⁄2 cup crushed potato chips, crumbs
- 1⁄2 cup finely diced onion
- 1 ounce hidden valley original ranch dressing mix
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
- 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
- 1⁄3 cup finely diced red bell pepper
- 1⁄4 cup sour cream
- 1 tablespoon jalapeno jelly
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons finely minced jalapeno peppers
- good quality hamburger bun
- Heat oil in medium saucepan until hot. Add the diced onions and cook over medium heat until translucent, about 3-5 minutes. Let cool.
- Meanwhile, combine ground beef, seasoning mix, parsley, and potato chip crumbs in large bowl. Add cooked onions and mix well. Form into 6 patties.
- For topping, mix together jalapeno jelly, sour cream, diced red pepper, and minced jalapeno. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to use.
- Grill patties 4-6 minutes per side or until meat is no longer pink in the center, adding slices of cheese the last 2 minutes of grilling. Top with about 2 tablespoons of topping. Put into buns and serve.
Great tasting burger. I used pepper jack cheese to try and carry on the jalapeno theme... I was out of provolone. I think both would work well with the burger and sauce. Great recipe for Sunday Pro Football. Thanks for posting. Made for TYM tag.
