Bloody Mary CheeseburgersHi everybody :)
When I first saw this recipe, I knew I would be making it soon. Bloody Mary Cheeseburgers, don't worry there's no alcohol in the recipe. Although, I did thought about adding some :) I opted out. The burgers and special sauce are prepared with spicy ingredients that mimic the Classic Bloody Mary Cocktail without the vodka. Let's get it started...
Bloody Mary Cheeseburgers
For the Burgers:
1 1/2 pounds ground beef chuck
Kosher salt and coarse black pepper
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 rounded tablespoons prepared horseradish (I used 1 tbsp.)
1 tablespoon Tabasco sauce (I used 1/2 tbsp. Sriracha Sauce)
A small handful celery tops and leaves, finely chopped
1/4 cup Heinz organic ketchup or Heinz chili sauce
1/2 cup Ritz cracker crumbs or fine breadcrumbs
1 egg yolk, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon EVOO – Extra Virgin Olive Oil
4 slices sharp cheddar cheese (Colby & Monterey Jack Cheese)
4 brioche burger rolls, split (I used Hamburger Buns.)
For the Sauce:
3/4 cup Heinz ketchup
1 rounded tablespoon horseradish (I used 1/2 tsp.)
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons Tabasco sauce (I used 1/2 tsp. Sriracha Sauce)
2 tablespoons minced celery tops
Coarse black pepper, to taste
Place beef in mixing bowl, season kosher salt and pepper. Add Worcestershire, horseradish, Tabasco, celery tops and leaves, ketchup or chili sauce, cracker crumbs and egg yolk.
(I wrapped the burgers in plastic and refrigerate for 3 hours.)
Combine sauce ingredients in small bowl.
Heat skillet or griddle pan over medium-high heat. Add oil and wipe around pan. Add burgers and cook 8-10 minutes, turning once. Top with cheese in last minute or 2 of your cooking time.
(I used Colby & Monterey Jack Cheese.)
Serve on rolls topped with special sauce.
What I Did and/or Think:
The changes I made are in Bold, Italic, & Purple.
The Taste: The burgers were great, but I really LOVE the sauce on top. It was spicy, but not too spicy and really made the burgers popped, so don't leave the sauce off.
ENJOY! Come again...
