Ingredients

2 pounds 80/20 ground beef

Salt and pepper

6 slices pepper jack cheese 

6 slices cooked bacon 

Butter, for buttering buns

6 brioche hamburger buns 

2 cups creamy peanut butter (see Cook's Note)

1/2 cup sriracha hot sauce 

Chipotle Mayonnaise, recipe follows

2 tomatoes, sliced 

1 red onion, sliced 

6 romaine leaves, halved 

Chipotle Mayonnaise:

One 7-ounce can chipotle peppers in adobo

2 1/2 cups mayonnaise 

3 tablespoons lemon juice 

1 tablespoon chipotle powder 

1 tablespoon salt 

1 tablespoon ground black pepper 

1/2 tablespoon minced garlic 

Directions

  1. Form the ground beef into six patties, then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook in a large skillet or nonstick pan to desired doneness, 8 to 10 minutes for medium to medium-well. Add the pepper jack cheese before finished to melt, followed by the bacon. Butter both sides of the buns and toast in a pan.
  2. Spread the creamy peanut butter on the tops and bottoms of the buns. Drizzle the sriracha sauce on the bun tops and drizzle Chipotle Mayonnaise on the bun bottoms. Place cooked patties on the bun bottoms, then top each with two slices of tomatoes, two red onion slices and a half leaf of romaine lettuce.

Chipotle Mayonnaise:

Yield: 3 1/2 cups
  1. Place chipotles and adobo, mayonnaise, lemon juice, chipotle powder, salt, pepper and garlic into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. This keeps in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

Cook’s Note

Warm up your peanut butter to spread more easily onto hamburger buns.
