The Quiet Burger

My burger is called the quiet burger because it is so good you won't hear a sound until it is finished. The inspiration for this burger came from a flatbread pizza recipe I created and thought the ingredients would taste fantastic on a burger. I made a few adjustments and the end result is outstanding. I think I have created a winning burger.


1 pound ground sirloin
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon ground mustard
1/2 tablespoon salt
1/2 tablespoon pepper
1 1/2 cup cubed colby jack cheese
1 cup crumbled goat cheese
1 large red onion/sliced
1 8oz jar of roasted red peppers in oil
1 clove of garlic/chopped
1/4 cup of softened butter
1 cup garlic and herb cream cheese
4 ciabatta rolls


combine the first seven ingredients, and then gently fold in the cubed colby jack cheese. Form the mixture into 4 1/4 pound burgers and allow the burgers to rest. In a skillet saute the onions until they are carmelized. Drain the oil from the roasted red peppers and slice into thin strips. Combine the chopped garlic and the softened butter. Place the burgers on the grill until they are medium to medium rare. Place the crumbled goat cheese on top of the burgers until slightly melted. Meanwhile, slice the ciabatta rolls and spread the garlic/butter butter mixture on the bread. Place the rolls on the grill for approximately 2 minutes until golden brown. To assemble the burger, spread the cream cheese mixture on both sides of the roll, place the burger on top and top the burger with the carmelized onions and roasted red peppers.


This burger is simple yet delicious. I like this recipe because it has wonderful flavor and textures, yet is still simple enough for even a novice chef. You can't go wrong with this burger. It is a clear winner.
