Your Favorite Cheeseburger, With a Kick.

Happy Labor Day Weekend! Sometimes, sticking with the classics is really the way to go. In honor of our bun sale this week, here is a devilishly delicious cheeseburger recipe that is sure to be your new favorite. The addition of the pickled chilies really sets this cheeseburger off!

Your Favorite Cheeseburger:

Serves: 8

3 lbs coarsely minced beef
1 tbsp olive oil
3/4 cup Gruyère, coarsely grated
3/4 cup cheddar, coarsely grated
To serve: lettuce leaves, tomatoes and red onion
2 packs (8 total buns) of your favorite Sadie Rose Buns, Brioche or Pretzel

For pickled chilis:
1 1/2 cup white wine vinegar
1/2 cup sugar
2 tblspn sea salt flakes
8 jalepeños, thinly sliced

For pickled chilis:
Combine vinegar, sugar and salt, and bring to the boil in a saucepan. Add jalapeño chilies and set aside to cool.

For burgers:
Preheat grill to high. Divide meat into 8 equal portions and scatter with sea salt.
Heat oil in a non-stick frying pan and cook the patties in batches, pressing occasionally to keep their shape, to medium-rare (10 minutes), transfer to an oven tray, top with both cheeses and grill until melted (2 minutes).
Split buns and toast cut-side up under the grill.
Spread aïoli over the bases and top with lettuce, tomato, red onion, beef patties and tomato sauce. Serve with pickled chili.
