Serves: 4
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 3 tablespoons Chipotle Olive Tapenade
  • 1-2 sliced green bell peppers
  • 4 medium cheddar jalapeno rolls, sliced horizontally
  • 8 slices of bacon (I used my home cured garlic and black pepper bacon)
  • 4 slices mozzarella cheese
  • sundried tomato alfredo spaghetti sauce
  1. Heat your grill to 350 degrees F.
  2. Mix the tapenade into the ground beef. Press the beef into four quarter pound patties.
  3. Place the burgers, bacon, and pepper slices on the grill. Salt and pepper the ground beef to taste. Close the lid. Flip everything 4-5 minutes later.
  4. Place the cheese on the flipped burgers. Remove everything at the desired degree of cooking. Optional: toast the rolls while cooking.
  5. Spread the sauce on the rolls, construct the burgers, and chow down.
