How to make Gorgonzola Jerk Burger with Brandied Peach Bacon


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

  2. Combine ground beef, jerk seasoning, sea salt, and steak marinade. Form into four burger patties and refrigerate until ready to cook.


  1. Combine slaw mix, mayo, diced tomato, Gorgonzola cheese, salt, and pepper. Refrigerate until ready to use.


  1. Place a small wired rack on top of a baking sheet. Lay each piece of bacon flat on the rack.

  2. Brush each piece of bacon with Brandied Peach Jam and bake for 15-18 minutes, until bacon is done.

Cooking Burgers

  1. Heat butter over medium-high heat. When the butter has just melted, place burgers in the pan and sear on both sides.

  2. Reduce heat to medium and cook until desired temperature. Remove from pan, but leave the drippings and heat on.

  3. Place brioche buns flat side down in the pan for about 2-3 minutes, until a little brown. Remove from pan.


  1. Place a small amount of arugula on the bottom bun. Add bacon, then the burger patty, top with slaw, and place the top bun. Enjoy!

Tips & Tricks

  1. For extra flavor, let the burger patties marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before cooking.

  2. You can substitute Brandied Peach Jam with regular Peach Jam if preferred.
