Ultimate Burger

Jason's Ultimate Burger

Recipe by Jason Parsons.

 

INGREDIENTS:

Burgers:

3 lbs lean ground beef

2 cups diced aged cheddar cheese

1/2 cup finely chopped herbs

1/4 cup chopped onion

1/4 cup hoisin sauce

2 tbsp finely chopped garlic

1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

2 cups chopped bacon

2 eggs

1/2 cup breadcrumbs

3 tsp salt

3 tsp ground white pepper

Glaze:

1/2 cup barbecue sauce

1/4 cup hoisin sauce

2 tbsp honey

1 tsp ground cinnamon

Garnish:

8 burger buns

1/4 cup grape mustard (or Dijon)

16 leaves watercress

16 slices tomato

8 slices red onion

 

INSTRUCTIONS:

Burgers:

In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, cheddar, herbs, onion, hoisin, garlic and Worcestershire.

Sauté the bacon over medium heat until cooked through. Add the warm bacon, including the fat, to the beef mix. Stir in the eggs, breadcrumbs, salt, and pepper. Once it’s well combined, form the mixture into 8 evenly sized burgers and chill.

Glaze:

Combine the barbecue sauce with the hoisin, honey and cinnamon.

Assembly:

Cook the burgers on a very hot grill, brushing with the glaze each time they are turned. Warm the buns on the side or on the top rack. Once the burgers are cooked through, remove from the grill and brush once more with the glaze.

Spread the mustard on the bottom layer of the bun. Add the burger, watercress, sliced tomato, and onion; cap with the bun top.

Cook’s note: The chopped herbs can be any mix of your favourite seasonings. I like tarragon, parsley and chives.
