Memorial Day Firecracker Burger with Barefoot Mixed Cocktail and Hard Seltzer Variety, serves 4 regular or 8 slider size
6 oz. cream cheese, softened (use Jalapeño Cream Cheese from our Dairy Dept for an extra kick!)
1/2 c. shredded cheddar
1/2 c. shredded mozzarella
2 -3 jalapeños, minced
Freshly ground black pepper
6 slices bacon, cooked and chopped
1/2 tsp. chili powder
2 Tbsp Worcestershire
1 1/2 angus ground beef
4 Brioche burger buns (regular or slider size!)
Optional: Add more grilled jalapeños and cooked bacon!
1. Make filling: In a medium bowl, mix together cream cheese, cheddar, mozzarella, and jalapeños. Season with salt and pepper, then fold in cooked bacon and Worcestershire .
2. Preheat grill to medium-high. Form ground beef into 8 large, thin rounds (about ¼”). Spoon about ¼ cup of filling mixture onto one patty, then place a second patty on top. Pinch edges to seal burger and re-shape into a disc if necessary. Repeat with remaining patties and filling mixture. Place in refrigeration for about 15-20 minutes before grilling to help keep from falling apart.
3. Preheat grill to medium-high. Season burgers on both sides with chili powder, salt, and pepper. Place on grill and cook until cooked through to your liking, about 6 minutes per side for medium.
4. Add finished burgers to brioche buns and serve immediately with your choice of sides and a refreshing Barefoot Hard Seltzer!
