Cheddarburger with Jalapeño-Garlic Remoulade

Prepare your mouth for a flavor explosion.  This is a delicious burger topped with a spicy sauce of jalapenos and garlic.

Cheddarburger with Jalapeño-Garlic Remoulade

8 Jalapeno Peppers, Halved & Seeded
8 Garlic Cloves, Peeled 
2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Sea Salt And Fresh Ground Pepper
1 Pound Ground Beef
4 Kayser Rolls, Split
4 Slices Sharp Cheddar Cheese

Coat the bottom a medium sized skillet with the olive. Add the garlic and jalapeños. Cover and cook over low heat, turning the jalapeños occasionally, until they are blistered all over and the garlic is softened, about 15 minutes.  Season with salt and pepper.  Turn up heat to medium.  Cook until garlic begins to caramelize.

Remove the skillet from heat to allow garlic and peppers to cool.   

Transfer the jalapeños and garlic to a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. Scrape the sauce into a bowl and set aside.

Preheat a grill for medium heat (I use a George Foreman Grill).  When hot, lightly oil the grate. 

Divide the ground beef into 4 portions and form into patties.  Grill to desired temperature.

While the burgers are cooking smear a healthy spoonful of spoonful of jalapeño-garlic remoulade onto the bottom bun.  Place a slice of cheddar on top of the sauce and another on the lid.  

When the burgers are done place on the bun, top with the lid and serve.
