Red, White, and Blue Burgers
Let’s celebrate America with a burger, but this burger shall only be adorned with red, white, and blue toppings. Red, White, and Blue burger is not your ordinary chicken burger, it’s made with a juicy and perfectly seasoned chicken breast patty and smothered in thick Brie cheese for a perfect creaminess in every bite. Stack on fire roasted red bell peppers, smoky bacon and a homemade fresh blueberry bbq sauce for a jaw dropping experience.
Red, White and Blue Burger
For the patty:
2 pounds of ground chicken breast
3 tbsp. montreal seasoning
1 whole Vidalia onion, minced into meat
1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
2 tbsp. hot sauce
3/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
3 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 garlic clove, minced
1 cup fresh blueberries
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp ground mustard
1/4 tsp ground all spice
2 tsp hot sauce
salt to taste
4 red bell peppers
smoky, crisp bacon
6 white tender hamburger buns
6 large thick slices of brie cheese
Preheat grill to 350 degrees and spray with nonstick.
In a bowl combing all of the patty ingredients and gently mix together by hand. Be sure not to overmix and cause for a tough burger.
Form 6 burger patties and placed on oiled grill.
Cook about 6-8 minutes on each side until internal temperature 165 degrees.
Right before pulling burgers off of grill, place a thick cut piece of brie cheese and allow to melt.
Make blueberry bbq sauce:
You can actually do this first and allow the simmering to take place while burgers are being made and cooking.
In a medium pot combine all of the blueberry bbq ingredients and bring to a boil on medium heat.
Lower heat and allow to simmer 15 minutes.
Remove from heat and allow sauce to thicken. I like to keep my blueberries whole for texture and presentation, but if you would like, you can puree sauce and then put through a strainer.
Brush olive oil on red peppers and place on grill. Fire roast the peppers until charred on all sides. Slice with a box cut technique so there are 4 large slices from each pepper.
Cook bacon until crispy
Place brie covered patty on bun followed by fire roasted red peppers, smoky bacon, and generously drizzle/pour blueberry bbq sauce on top!
