Today’s recipe, Sharp Cheddar Burger with Fig Onion Jam, is less about the burger patty and more about its tasty partners. The fig onion jam and sharp cheddar cheese make this dish and will create a satisfying smile at first bite.
This burger is so flippin tasty folks.
Burgers are an impressive meal that have certain requirements.
This Sharp Cheddar Burger with Fig Onion Jam meets all of the above requirements. The burger patty is a meaty mound of 80% lean ground beef, seasoned with a generous pinch or two of kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, creating a thin crust when cooked.
The pretzel bun is the cradle and up to the task of keeping everything together. This burger would be a sloppy experience if it wasn’t for the pretzel bun’s expertise in holding on to juicy melted ingredients. However, if you find it difficult to get hold of pretzel buns, brioche buns are a good alternative.
The patty is cloaked in sweet and savory delight that is the fig onion jam, interrupted by thick melted slices of sharp cheddar cheese. It’s a true experience for the tastebuds. An experience you will want to repeat.
Sharp Cheddar Burger with Fig Onion Jam is a casual dinner party dish. Serve with sweet potato fries and a bold wine, and follow up with a medley of sorbets. Enjoy!
