Coffee Cayenne Burgers
These burgers are terrific. The secret's in the special meat rub. From Cheryl Hill-Burrier's article Wanna Fork with that Coffee?
- Form the ground chuck into four meat patties of equal size. Place 1 teaspoon rub mixture on the topside of each meat patty and refrigerate for one hour before grilling.
- Cook bacon until crisp and break each slice in half. Heat grill to medium-high heat. Place burgers, rub side down, on the grill rack and cook for about 4 minutes. Flip the burgers and continue cooking for another 4 minutes, placing the cheese on top during the last minute. Remove from the grill and place on the bottom halves of the buns.
- Now, put two halves of bacon on each burger and top with onion and tomatoes. Spread mayonnaise on the top bun and place on the burger.
- Makes 4 burgers.
