Scrumptious Saturday {2}

::Jalepeno Popper Burgers::


  • 3 jalapeno peppers (halve lengthwise, remove/disgard seeds, and chop finely)
  • 6 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • cheese
  • hamburger buns, split
  • lettuce leaves
  • tomato slices
  • guacamole 
  • ketchup/mayo/mustard


  • In a small bowl, combine the bacon, cream cheese and jalapeno until blended.
  • In a large bowl, combine the garlic, salt, lemon-pepper, pepper and paprika. Crumble beef over mixture and mix just until blended. Shape into eight thin patties. Spoon bacon mixture onto center of four patties; top with remaining patties and press edges firmly to seal.
  • Grill burgers until done
  • Serve with toppings
        chefs notes: #1: For those of you that are wondering....I made four recipes for my family.  *smile*
#2: to use less jalepeno, leave seeds in. The seeds of a jalepeno have most of the zing. For example, I made this recipe times four, but only used 3/4 of a jalepeno, because I left the seeds in
#3: these are SO yummy. You will never be content with a "normal" hamburger again!
