For each burger you will need:

  • 6 ounces regular or lean ground beef
  • 1 1/2 ounces Monterrey jack or pepper jack cheese cut in 1 cm cubes
  • pinch kosher salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp chipotle powder
  • 1 clove roasted garlic mashed into a paste (or 1/2 clove finely minced garlic)
  • 2 tbsp hot sauce or 1 tbsp minced fresh jalapeno pepper optional

Top with:

  • oil packed sundried tomatoes
  • crisp cooked smoky bacon
  • baby lettuce leaves


  1. Combine all the burger ingredients.
  2. Form into patties and cook in a hot, lightly oiled cast iron pan or on a preheated grill until well done (internal temperature with a meat thermometer should read 160 degrees F or higher.
  3. Serve on toasted crusty rolls with crisp cooked bacon, lettuce and tomato. I pve chopped sindried tomatoes on this flavourful burger.

Recipe Notes

The total cooking time reflects the time it takes to roast the garlic. While it's roasting you can prep all your ingredients and cook the bacon.
