Ingredients

For the Smoky Sriracha Mayo

  • 1/2 cup olive oil mayo
  • 2 tbsp sriracha sauce
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika

For the bacon blankets

  • 12 strips of bacon cut in half

For the burgers

  • 1 1/2 pounds medium or lean ground beef
  • 3 tbsp sriracha sauce

To construct the burgers

  • 4 to asted burger buns
  • 6 ounces of aged cheddar cheese thinly sliced
  • 4 heaping tablespoons of smooth peanut butter
  • crisp lettuce
  • sliced tomato
  • 4 heaping tsp sweet green relish

Instructions

To make the Smoky Sriracha Mayo

  1. Simply stir the mayo, sriracha sauce and smoked paprika together, set aside for later.

To make the bacon blankets

  1. Cut the bacon strips in half and weave them into bacon blankets. Fry them until crisp and hold in a warm oven until needed.

To prepare the burger patties

  1. Mix the ground beef with the sriracha sauce and form into 4, six ounce patties. I like to pat them out to about a half inch thickness to allow for shrinking while cooking.
  2. Fry on a cast iron skillet or cook on a hot grill for 3-4 minutes per side. When you flip the burgers, add the thinly sliced cheddar on top while the second side cooks.

To construct the burgers

  1. Place the cooked burger patties with the melted cheese on the bottom half of the toasted burger buns. Add the bacon blankets, spread the peanut butter over the bacon, add the lettuce, then tomato and finally top with the Smoky Sriracha Mayo and relish.
