Canyon Creek Burger Recipe

Ingredients

Burger

  • 1 lb ground beef (80/20 or 90/10 for juiciness)
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste

Toppings

  • 2 tablespoons canola or vegetable oil
  • 2 fresh jalapeños, sliced
  • 1 cup freshly shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 slices thick-cut bacon, cooked crispy
  • 4 eggs
  • 2-3 tablespoons blackberry jam or grape jelly
  • 4 hamburger buns

Equipment

  • Large skillet or cast iron pan
  • Spatula

Instructions

1. Prep the toppings

  • Slice the jalapeños into rounds.
  • Cook the bacon until crispy, then set aside on a paper towel lined plate.
  • Shred the cheddar cheese.

2. Form and season the patties

  • Divide the ground beef into four equal portions.
  • Gently form each portion into a patty slightly wider than the hamburger buns.
  • Create a shallow dimple in the center of each patty (this helps prevent doming during cooking).
  • Season the patties with salt and pepper on both sides.

3. Cook the jalapeños

  • Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in the skillet or pan over medium-high heat.
  • Add the sliced jalapeños and cook for 1-2 minutes per side, or until softened and slightly browned.
  • Remove the jalapeños from the pan and set aside.

4. Cook the burgers

  • Place the burger patties in the same pan.
  • Cook for 3-5 minutes per side, or until the desired level of doneness is reached.
  • During the last minute of cooking, top each patty with a quarter of the cheddar cheese to melt.

5. Fry the eggs

  • In a separate pan or in the same one (if there’s space), fry the eggs to your preference (over easy, over medium, etc.).

6. Assemble the burgers

  • Lightly toast the hamburger buns, if desired.
  • On the bottom bun, place a burger patty.
  • Top the burger with bacon, a fried egg, cooked jalapeños, and blackberry jam or grape jelly.
  • Place the top bun on, and enjoy!

Tips

Ground Meat: For the juiciest Canyon Creek Burger experience, choose a ground beef mixture with a higher fat content (like 80/20).

Spice it up: If you like it hotter, keep some of the jalapeño seeds in the mix.

The Bun: Try pretzel buns or brioche buns for a slightly elevated burger experience.
