What says summer more than BBQ right?! 😎
Our Friday group is back to normal again (yay) with all of us making the same recipe…Three-Pepper Burgers. The three peppers being roasted red bell pepper, Peppadew peppers, and jalapeño. All three are diced very finely and added to the mixture. I had no idea what a Peppadew pepper was so, for me, when in doubt…I google it!
Peppadew actually refers to the brand name of a South African sweet piquanté pepper. It is sometimes referred to as a sweet red cherry pepper with a simmering spiciness and a touch of sweet. Apparently they can be hard to find because of their popularity…who knew haha! I bought mine online and figured we had to have them for the burger to fully experience the recipe…and I knew my pepper loving son and husband would probably love them…and I was right…with the peppers and the burgers.
To finish off the burger mixture you add into the peppers, chopped basil and parsley, salt, pepper, and cheddar cheese. Gently mix all with the ground beef. Shape into 4 patties and chill for at least 30 minutes. We opted to grill our hamburgers but you can skillet fry them as well.
There are a lot of optional condiments and we used all that were mentioned:
- Avocado mash with salt and lime juice
- Red onion
- Chopped dill pickle
- Hot sauce
This is a gourmet burger all the way! Definitely elevated the mid-week dinner for us. We were surprised that the burger wasn’t too spicy, just had a great depth of flavor. I am sure my son and husband could have used more heat, but for me, I was actually able to eat it no problem. I always know the new recipe is a hit when they ask, “how hard was this to make?” because what they are really asking is, “can we have these again??“😂
This is a keeper!
