Juicy Lucy Burger

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons Cajun Seasoning Blend 
  • 6 slices American cheese
  • 6 slices Habanero cheese or use Pepperjack cheese
  • 3 jalapeno peppers
  • 3 Serrano peppers

FOR SERVING:

  • 6 brioche buns (or buns of choice) 
  • Ranchero sauce or your favorite hot sauce 
  • Other burger toppings to your preference

Instructions

  1. Mix your Cajun seasonings into the ground beef. Hand mix to incorporate, but do not over-mix.
  2. Form 12 thin patties with the seasoned ground beef. 6 of them should be slightly larger, to form the base. I like to use a burger press for this process.
  3. Top each of the larger patties with a slice each of American and Habanero (or Pepper-jack) cheese.
  4. Next, top each of the stuffed burgers with the smaller patties and hand form the meat around the cheese. You should still have burger-shaped patties.
  5. Grill or pan sear the burgers in a bit of olive oil a few minutes per side, until the cheese is melted and the burgers are cooked through to your preference. Remove from heat and let the burgers rest a couple minutes to let the cheeses relax.
  6. When the burgers are cooking, grill or pan sear the jalapeno and Serrano peppers about 10 minutes, rolling a bit to get each side of the skins, until the skins char up and blacken. Slice them into rings and discard the stems.
  7. Serve the burgers onto buns topped with sliced peppers, Ranchero sauce or hot sauce, and your favorite toppings.
