Just when you thought that a juicy bacon cheeseburger couldn't get any better, peanut butter entered the mix. Yes, you read that right. A peanut butter burger really does exist, and it's just as epic as it sounds.
Although peanut butter may initially seem to be an unlikely addition to a classic cheeseburger, the creamy condiment compliments the beef and bacon in a way that is sure to make your tastebuds immediately explode with happiness.
This easy-to-follow recipe, originally from Camp Chef, calls for smoked bacon, ground beef, jalapeno jelly, cheddar cheese, burger buns, peanut butter, maple syrup, milk, salt and pepper.
Watch the mouth-watering, peanut butter-drizzling, burger-making process in the video below.
With spicy jelly on one end and sweet peanut butter on the other, this jam-packed burger is as flavorful they come. The smooth peanut butter also provides a great counter flavor to the crispy bacon.
To make four burgers, the recipe recommends the following quantities:
- 2 lbs. ground beef
- 4-6 tablespoons of jalapeno jelly
- 4-8 slices of cooked bacon
- 4 burger buns
- Salt and pepper (to taste)
The peanut butter mixture is made by combining two cups of peanut butter with 1/2 cup maple syrup and anywhere between 1/2 to a full cup of milk (based on desired consistency). Microwave your peanut butter mixture for 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between until smooth.
