Peanut Butter Burger

Peanut Butter Burger

Guys, you’re gonna have to trust me on this one. It’s weird, but it’s good. I promise.

This was inspired by a burger I had years ago in Tulsa at the Dust Bowl bowling alley.  Theirs didn’t have bacon, but otherwise, this is a pretty exact replica of that burger.

Let’s be honest here, friends. I work full time and have a 9 month old, so this isn’t a homemade burger. I used frozen patties broiled in the oven and the buns and peanut butter are store-bought. But it doesn’t matter. It’s super good.

The peanut butter is creamy, salty and a hint of sweet against the savory onions, crispy bacon and crisp waffles.

Ingredients:

  • Beef burger patties (1 per person)- like I said I used frozen 85/15 patties
  • 2 slices of bacon per person
  • Frozen waffles (2 per person)- toast them to your liking, for me that’s on level 2 twice
  • 1 onion for every 2 burgers
  • 2 tbsp butter per onion
  • 1 tbsp oil per onion (I use Riceland’s rice bran oil)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • seasoned salt
  • 1 tbsp creamy peanut butter per person

Directions:

  • Broil or grill your burgers (sprinkle with season salt before cooking).
  • Crisp up your bacon (I sometimes cook it on the stove or often in the oven).
  • Caramelize the onions. Melt the butter and oil together over medium high heat.  Slice your onion in rings and place in melted butter/oil mixture.  Sprinkle with salt and sugar and turn the heat down to medium.  Let them cook for 20 minutes until golden brown.
  • Toast the waffles.
  • Assemble the burgers. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT.  Bottom bun, burger, onions, bacon, and then peanut butter on the top bun.  DO NOT PUT PB ON THE BOTTOM BUN (I don’t like to yell, but if you do this, the peanut butter hits your tongue first and it’s all you taste. Trust me!)
  • Enjoy!

You could also make these like sliders with smaller burgers and the mini waffle buns. They would be really fun for a party since they are super unique!
