You read that right…Peanut Butter Burger. Any normal person would scoff at the idea of putting such a thing as a condiment on a burger. However, with one bite you’ll be converted. When you throw this burger on the grill alongside that smokin’ bacon, you will know you made the right choice.
2 lbs ground beef
Salt and pepper
Sliced cheddar cheese
4-6 Tablespoons jalapeño jelly
4-8 slices of cooked bacon
4 hamburger buns
Ingredients for peanut butter sauce:
2 cups peanut butter
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/2-1 cup of milk
In a microwave safe bowl, mix peanut butter, maple syrup and 1/2 cup milk. Heat in microwave for 30 to 45 seconds at a time, stirring in between until smooth. Add more milk if needed depending on the consistency you like. Set aside.
Form beef into 8 patties. Press the centers of the patties down so that the burgers don’t get too thick in the middle when you grill them. Season each side with salt and pepper.
Preheat Pellet Grill to 300-325 F, I like using mesquite wood pellets and cook until your liking (145 F for medium rare,160 F for medium) using a meat thermometer.
Grill each bun, until grill marks appear. Spread jalapeño jelly on each side of the bun. Place the burger on bottom bun and top with bacon. Drizzle on the peanut butter sauce and place the top bun and enjoy!!!! Its kinda messy so have some paper towels handy.
