Yeah ..... Me neither .....
Don't get me wrong - I love a good burger and as I have previously shared in an earlier post, jalapeno's are a weakness of mine. However, I cringe at the thought of walking into a BK. Nothing good comes of BK, or any fast food. Even the days where it tastes amazing you feel anything but amazing afterwards, making it not worth it in my opinion. The fact that I am lactose intolerant (which means no dairy) doesnt help matters but in terms of not eating fast food (aka: crap) I am better off. Fortunately better off doesnt necessarily translate into missing out. That said, I offer you the solution to ending any feelings of conflict you may have surrounding fast food consumption (specifically BK's Jalapeno Burgers) via the following recipe!
-1 1/2 lbs Ground Beef
15 -25 presliced Jalapeno Rings
2 Tbs Worchestire Sauce1 Tbs
1/2 TbsBlack Pepper
1/4 bread crumbs (i use gluten free, anotha issue)
2/3 cup Daiya Brand Cheddar Cheese Shreds
2 Egg Replacers or 1 Real Egg (whichever you prefer)
Buns (Gluten Free or otherwise), optional
First, dice up those jalapeno rings, set aside.
Put your meat into a large bowl and add worchestire, egg or replacer (as per instructions on egg replacer box), black pepper, Daiya Cheddar, bread crumbs, and your diced jalapeno. Mix until well combined, then form into parrties (about 5-6).
To cook: you can broil or grill, depending on what you have access to. I live in a city apt so I personally broil for approximately 8 minutes per side. Once cooked, slap your burger on a bun and top with your favorite condiments...... or not.... but either way enjoy!! I leave out the bun and instead drizzle mine with bbq sauce.
U may also use ground turkey, in which you would follow the same recipe, except reduce worchestire to 1 Tbs as turkey tends to be more moist and grill/broil longer (approx 10 minutes per side).
