Sriracha Muenster Burger

Hot damn.

Isn’t she the prettiest?

This is by far one of the best burgers I’ve ever had. EVER. Let me begin by telling you that this isn’t my burger.

Nope, this is my son’s. My 18 year old son has had culinary interests on and off for years, but lately they’re really kicking into gear.

So, for the burgers, he started with making some pretty beef patties with fresh 80/20 ground chuck. He gave them a good shake of salt and pepper on both sides and Worcestershire sauce.

I, of course, doused my own personal one with a little Sriracha to get the hot party started while the grill got nice and hot.

He grilled them over medium heat for 3-4 minutes per side for a perfect medium rare, but you could add a minute to each side for medium.

Or, you could just burn the shit out of them if you want to, which is what I used to do. Now I absolutely love medium rare burgers. I never enjoyed the beauty of them before, but I just didn’t know what I was missint out on.

Let’s talk cheese. We used Muenster, a very personal favorite of mine. If you’re not familar with Muenster cheese, I would describe it as a really good cross between Cheddar and Havarti. It melts really well, but still is a little bold. It’s just luscious.

He added this to the burgers at about the last minute of grilling them for an awesome meltiness.

Just FYI, when I discovered Muenster, I fell in love – it is the most amazing pizza cheese.

Fresh tomato!

For the bread, we toasted some buttered and parslied sesame seed buns.

You know I made mine a big, fat hot ass mess Sriracha Burger with lots of mayo.  (His was minus the mayo and Sriracha).
