BLT Blue Cheese Ranch Burger 

Did I say BLT and ranch and burger? All three in one recipe? Yep.

 

I made these burgers for a group of friends one afternoon and they pretty much lost their minds. The ranch dressing is rich and creamy next to the beefy burger with that crispy bacon, lettuce, and tomato. They are truly indulgent!

Is it possible to fit anything else that I love on one burger? Yes, make the bacon jam. You know how you bite into a burger with a strip of bacon on it and the bacon slides out? Well, I’m a problem solver. Pairing this beautiful hunk of beef with our new vintage of Malbec — its rich mouthfeel and combo of fruity blackberry preserves, spice, and cocoa plays perfectly with the bold flavors of this burger. 

Directions

For the Ranch:
Combine all of the ingredients and mix.

For the jam:
Heat the bacon drippings over medium-low heat. Add the shallot cook 5 minutes. Add the tomato paste and caramelize for another 3 minutes.

Place the mixture into a food processor and add the bacon pieces. Pulse until finely chopped and becomes a jam-like consistency.

In a large skillet, heat over medium-high heat with avocado oil. Season the burger patties on both sides with salt and pepper. Allow to cook on the first side for 3 to 4 minutes. Flip the burger, add a splash of water and top with cheese slices. Cover the skillet with a lid and allow the burgers to continue cooking again, another 3 to 4 minutes until the cheese is melted and burgers are cooked perfectly.

To assemble, spread the bacon jam on the bottom of the potato bun, top with a tomato slice and bibb lettuce leave. Place a burger patty on top and drizzle with blue cheese ranch. Enjoy hot!
