Time to bump up that boring backyard bbq menu with a creative burger to make your party epic? Boom… Spicy Roasted Pineapple and Avocado Bacon Burger!
The summer here in NY has been pretty mild so far. Most days in the 80s. Comfortable. Beautiful. Is this how you California dwellers feel, like, all the time? #notjealous #okaymaybealittle
But this week’s different. It’s officially a heat wave here in NY. Temperatures are above 90 every day this week, which, by itself isn’t a terrible thing. But add in this ridiculous humidity and you have a recipe for one over-heated, over-cranky, over-weight dude.
But it’s also weeks like this that I’m reminded… it’s summer! And summer is a beautiful thing. Especially when you are a teacher and don’t have to work. So what’s a guy to do for lunch on a random weekday afternoon? Cook up something pretty darn fantastic, that’s what. And I know what’s gonna totally hit the spot and help me beat this crazy heat. This Spicy Roasted Pineapple and Avocado Bacon Burger… with a side of an ice cold margarita.
Hello, summer. I’m winning.
Now you can feel free to cook your burger however you darn well please. That’s your call and I’m not gonna mess with your burger cooking method. We all have our ways.
But Tyler and I have a new personal favorite way. Sous-vide. That’s right, we cook our burgers in a temperature-controlled water bath thanks to our immersion circulator. All it takes is a quick 15 minutes at 62-65°C and then a quick sear in a cast iron skillet, on the grill, or with our pyrotechnic friend the blowtorch. The burgers are beyond juicy and cooked absolutely perfect every single time.
What you can’t mess with, though, are these killer toppings. We’re talking thick-cut bacon. Fresh juicy pineapple that’s been caramelized with chili powder in the bacon fat. And, of course… you always need some avocado in our house (Asheley = obsessed).
And hey, if you want to really embrace summer, you need a margarita in that hand. No, no… put that blender away. Nope, no shaker necessary. All you have to do is reach into the fridge and grab some ready-to-serve, hand-crafted Cayman Jack margaritas.
What, what? You don’t have any in yo’ fridge? Oh, the travesty. You need to Find Cayman Jack.
You know what’s pretty epic about these margaritas? They use premium ingredients. And like we all know… greatness in any meal starts with premium ingredients. They use 100% Blue Agave Nectar. Pure Cane Sugar. And get this… organic key limes! There are no chemicals, corn syrup, or other gross garbage that so many other ready-to-serve margaritas contain.
With all that premium goodness, I know it’s going to pair like a boss with my Spicy Roasted Pineapple and Avocado Bacon Burger.
Goodbye heatwave. Hello summer refreshment.Print
