Secret Recipe Club: Spicy Jack Bacon Jalapeno Cheeseburgers

Secret Recipe Club
I was so happy when my assignment came in this month. I have the pleasure of making a recipe from Nicole of The Daily Dish.

I love the set up on The Daily Dish. It was easy to find recipes and to follow her blog in every which way possible and also to navigate around. I decided upon Nicole's Spicy Jack Bacon Jalapeno Cheeseburgers almost instantly. While looking at the recipe, I saw avocado fries and decided to make them as well because it'd be a perfect side for this spicy burger! And just because...I will be making this chicken scampi when I'm on vacation next week because my sister-in-law loves scampi! :)

These burgers were the bomb diggity!! Yes, I had to pull out 90's lingo to describe them! They were probably one of the better burgers I've assembled - they grilled nicely and stayed together. They were full of flavor and my husband couldn't get over the crumbled cheese inside the burger. The avocado fries weren't as big of a hit as I thought, but both kids ate a few and I liked them. I especially liked the dipping sauce :)

**I upped the original recipe to make around 8 to 10 burgers
What you need:
  • 2 lbs. ground beef
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 1 block cheddar cheese, crumbled
  • 4 jalapenos, deseeded and chopped
  • 1 egg
  • Sliced Pepperjack
  • Bacon, cut in half and cooked
  • Pickled Jalapenos
  • Mayo mixed with Tabasco or Buffalo Sauce
  • Hamburger buns
Mix together ground beef, salt, pepper, cheddar cheese, jalapenos, and egg.

Form into patties and grill!

To assemble: Bottom Bun, Slice of Pepperjack, Burger, Slice of Pepperjack, Bacon, Pickled Jalapenos, Top Bun (that has spicy mayo or buffalo on it).

  1. Oh your burgers turned out so beautiful. This is truly my go-to recipe when I make burgers. I love them so much. One thing you did that I didn't do, is that I chopped my jalapenos into ridiculously small pieces and yours are so pretty and big and I like that a lot, so next time I'm going to go a bit bigger on them.
    I love that you made the avocado fries, that's my favorite snack in the world, and probably my favorite recipe on my blog. haha Yum! (it's the good fat, I keep telling myself as I'm devouring them!)
