Sonic Drive-In Jalapeno Burger

Monday, September 12, 2011

1/4-pound ground beef (80%)
1 large plain white hamburger bun
butter-flavored spray or melted butter
ground black pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons yellow mustard
6 to 10 bottled jalapeno slices (nacho slices)
1/3 cup chopped iceberg lettuce

1. Shape the ground beef into a patty with approximately the same diameter as the bun. Cover the patty with wax paper and freeze it.

2. When you're ready to prepare the burger, preheat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat.

3. Spray some butter spray or spread a thin layer of melted butter on the top and bottom bun halves. Lightly brown the bun in the skillet or on the griddle, then set it aside.

4. Cook the beef patty in the hot pan, and lightly season it with salt and pepper. Cook the beef for 3 to 4 minutes per side, until done.

5. As the patty cooks, build the burger by first spreading the mustard over the face of the bottom bun.

6. Arrange the jalapeno slices on the mustard.

7. Arrange the lettuce on the jalapeno slices.

8. When the beef is ready, stack it on the lettuce, and top off the sandwich with the top bun. If you'd like the bun warmer, microwave the burger on high for 10 to 15 seconds.
