5 ALARM BURGER
Red Robin Copycat Recipe
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 teaspoon ground chipotle chile pepper
1/8 teaspoon paprika
1 (5 1.2 oz) ground beef patty
1/4 teaspoon Red Robin seasoning (see sidebar for recipe)
2 slices pepper jack cheese
1 sesame seed hamburger bun
4 to 6 jalapeno slices from a jar
2 tablespoons fresh salsa or pico de gallo
1/3 cup shredded iceberg lettuce
Chipotle Mayonnaise: Combining the ingredients in a small bowl. Cover and chill until you are ready to use it. Make Red Robin Seasoning.
Burger: Preheat barbecue to medium heat. Shape ground beef into a round patty that is slightly larger than the sesame seed bun. Sprinkle with Red Robin Seasoning over both sides of the patty. Grill for 3 to 5 minutes per side, or until the patty is cooked. Just before the burger is done place a couple slices of pepper jack cheese on top of the patty to melt. Toast the sesame seed bun on an indoor griddle or skillet, or on barbecue, watching carefully to avoid burning.
Assembly: Spread approximately 2 teaspoons of the chipotle mayonnaise on top and botton of the toasted bun. Place the hamburger patty on the bottom bun. Add 4 to 6 jalapeno slices on the patty. Spoon 2 tablespoons of salsa or pico de gallo over the jalapeno slices. Add about 1/3 cup of shredded lettuce on and finish with bun top.
