Directions

  • Mix ground beef, black pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, Worcestershire sauce, and cayenne pepper in a large bowl until evenly blended. Form beef mixture into 6 4-inch wide patties. Transfer patties to a large plate and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate until patties are slightly firm, about 30 minutes.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon slices on paper towels.

  • Cook beef patties on preheated grill until they are beginning to firm and are hot and slightly pink in the center, about 4 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 140 degrees F (60 degrees C). Sprinkle Cheddar cheese over patties about a minute before they are done.

  • Mix peanut butter and maple syrup in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat peanut butter mixture in the microwave until slightly runny, about 25 seconds. Stir again.

  • Spread peanut butter mixture over hamburger buns and top with beef patties, lettuce, tomatoes, and bacon.

Cook's Note:

Maple syrup is added to Adams(R) peanut butter due to the brand's lack of sweetness. If you use another brand such as Jiffy, use less maple syrup and perform a taste test.

Astonishing. After all its just a burger but the combination of a little spiciness in the burger meat and the lightly sweetened peanut butter is just brilliant. I was skeptical but this turned out to be a favourite at the cottage. Some hints - this would be excellent as a slider. And if like me you are used to eating two burgers at a sitting this burger will slow you down at a count of one. And finally I recommend leaving the bacon off. I think its better without. Read More
