Well…I did it. I created my all-time favorite burger. I mean friends…I was swooning over this baby.
Peaches are in season every June in Texas and smell just divine, so I picked up a big batch, brought them home and grilled them along with my burgers. Then, I topped each burger with arugula, sauteed onions, a nice grilled peach slice and Gorgonzola cheese. The result? Amazing.
I’m a knife and fork burger gal, so this one was right up my alley. Love, love, love, LOVED. Your weekend needs these burgers.
about two tablespoons of your favorite steak seasoning (I used Montreal Steak Seasoning)
2 peaches, sliced
about 2 cups of arugula
about a cup or so of Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled
4 burger buns
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
salt and pepper
Add your burger patties to the grill and begin grilling (we do about 6 minutes or so each side). At the same time you’re grilling your patties, grill your peach slices. Add the slices directly to the grill and grill up each side about 1 to 2 minutes. Remove to a plate while you’re waiting on your patties to be finished.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium-high heat, add your chopped onions to a drizzle of EVOO. Add in a big pinch of both salt and pepper. Saute the onions until they start to caramelize (about 10 minutes).
The flavor combinations are just out of this world. The peaches are sweet, soft and compliment everything. Best. Burger.
